Get Fired Up!

This past weekend, a friend from high school passed away. Though it breaks my heart, the details of how he died are not of utmost importance. I've been trying to piece together my thoughts of him...the hilarious moments we shared in and out class, the days we promised we'd fight if the other didn't stop getting on our nerves...but what has been on my heart above all is wondering [and praying] if he was saved.

Now I know we are all sinners, as we are born into it regardless of who we are, what titles we have, how much money, etc. But I also know that Jesus Christ died for each and everyone of us so that our sins may be forgiven. Our main goal on earth is to proclaim the gospel of Jesus, and as God-fearing Christians there is comfort in knowing that in death, we know that we will continue to live [so long as we live as God says we should].

Here, another high school classmate and friend-Tayo- urges each of us to get Fired Up for God, so that we all- including our parents, siblings, friends, co-workers, etc.- may have eternal life.
