A recently released comedy starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley entitled Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, addresses the age old question, “Are you prepared to face death?” In the movie, we learn that a 70-mile wide speeding asteroid is on a collision course with earth. Obviously, if the earth collided with an asteroid that large, it would knock our planet off its axis and destroy most, if not all life forms.
The idea to base a movie off of this premise is not new, however it does bring to light the question of eternity. It is not going to take a head-on collision with a space rock for you and I to meet death. Death is truly inevitable. The Bible tells us in Psalms Chapter 139, Verse 16 that we have a certain number of days to live and God knows that number. In fact, it tells us that God knows so much about us that He even knew us before we were born. Ultimately what we all understand is when our number is up…we die.
Are you ready? Does standing before the throne of God get you excited or scared? Only you know that answer. If you are uncertain about the answer, check out John Chapter 3, Verse 16 in your Bible. After you read it…I think the answer will become very clear.
By the way, I have not seen the movie so please do not take this blog as an endorsement. Enjoy your weekend…
