Yes. Doomsday is finally here, friends. Sometime today, an asteroid should smash into the planet, and that’ll be it.
But still, I do submit that today is the end of the world.
For 153,000 souls.
There goes one. 1.78 per second.
107 per minute.
6,390 per hour.
153,000 per day.
56 million per year.
If you live till 70, 3.9 BILLION will die.
Yes. The world ends today.
“The value of the soul, who can estimate? Would you know it’s worth, go to Gethsemane, and there watch with Christ through those hours of anguish, when He sweat as it were great drops of blood. Look upon the Savior uplifted on the cross. Hear that despairing cry, “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?” Mark 15:34. Look upon the wounded head, the pierced side, the marred feet. Remember that Christ risked all. For our redemption, heaven itself was imperiled. At the foot of the cross, remembering that for one Christ would have laid down His life, you may estimate the value of a soul.”
-- Christ’s object lessons, pg. 196.
A soul, friends. What about the other 152,999 that will die today? Most of whom will never know Christ?
Today is the end of the world.
What will we do about it?
