The billboard caught my eye: “When you die you will meet God.” As we continued down the highway, I thought about those words. There are only two kinds of people who will someday meet God: those who have longed for the day they will see Him face-to-face, and those for whom He is a stranger… Is God a stranger to you?
God doesn’t desire to be a stranger to any of us, His Word tells us plainly throughout the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, including in the First Book of John:
“And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life” (John 5:20).
God sent His Son, in part, to give us truth: an understanding of Who He is. When we accept Christ, we are His children, and also the Father’s. In His deep love for us, God uses many things to lead us toward Him: our circumstances, His Word, nature, even billboards! We can deny this truth, keeping God a stranger, or we can experience the joy of knowing the very One Who created us individually and for His pleasure. What will your choice be?
Considering our own death can bring anxiety. But if we are wise, we will prepare for that day when we will meet God! It isn’t too late for you …
