Live each day like its your last because you don't know it could be. Most people do not get advanced warning. Make everyday count. Sow the seeds that best show how you want to be treated, because whether good or evil God says that you will reap what you sow. Jesus will be coming back sooner then many may think. What is HE going to find his children doing ?
Nothing we do for ourselves is going to matter in eternity. As for popular worldly opinions...well lets just say most contradict God's Word. The Bible says "Enter through the narrow gate, for the gate is wide and the road is broad that leads to destruction, and many go through it. But narrow is the gate and small the road that leads to life and few find it." Matt: 7:13-14.... Knowing things about God does not automatically make you a Christian. It's about having faith in God's Son Jesus and trusting HIS sacrifice on the cross to pay your sin debt completely. It's about following God by praying & seeking HIS direction and then moving forward according to what HE directs. It's about spending time reading HIS Word and learning to listen to his Holy Spirit speak directly to your heart. Huge difference between this and just knowing some info. about the Bible.
Make your life count for God because one minute after you die; all the things that seemed so important will fall by the way side. God will see your true heart and if you really loved HIM or just paid HIM lip service. So make your life count while you have the chance, because you have 1 less day today then you did yesterday.
