Someone has said that death and taxes are a given, and yet I know verified by the Holy Spirit and the Bible there there is more. Someday those who have asked Jesus to save them will be ushered in to His presence. Wow, what a wonderful promise. I've read the lyrics where someone discovered they had only a limited time left on earth, due to some unforeseen issue.

If that happened to you or me we would probably do a lot of reevaluating our current condition and situation. For me I think I would look at my priorities and make sure that I've made the first things first. By that I mean I would make sure I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Peter says: we should work on our self-discipline or priorities. And then he says that we should make our love for the saints both fervent and a top shelf item.  If James says the fervent prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much, then just try to imagine how much fervent prayer for the saints will accomplish. Peter then tells us to do common sense things that help the saints that are in need.

Acts 4:12

James 5:16

1 Peter 4: 7-9
