October is the month of beautiful colour. We enjoy the brilliant orange, yellow, rust and red of the fall leaves. I read recently of a man whose interest was caught by one leaf which was only a fine network of veins, the other part of the leaf was gone. Similarly, as we age, our hair turns white, sight begins to fade, our skin wrinkles. But inside, our body, our soul and spirit are eternal. Jesus once asked the rhetorical question, “what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his own soul?” The unhappy answer is obvious. But thankfully, because of that, Jesus came and gave His life for us. Please do not be fooled into thinking this life is all there is. You and I are going to live somewhere forever, and where that is will be determined by our relationship to Jesus Christ. He said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” He also said, “Except a man be born again, He cannot see the kingdom of God.” Now is the time to prepare for the next life.
