Three Score Years…and then

Three Score Years…and then


Said the elderly gentleman to a college graduate: “Now that you are leaving college, what are you going to do?”

“Oh,” said the young man, “I shall get a job.”

“And what then?”

“I shall marry.”

“Yes, and what then?”

“I shall have a family, I suppose; work hard, get a better job, and with luck work my way to the top.”

“And what then?” the old gentleman continued to inquire.

“Well,” said the young man, “eventually I suppose I shall retire.”

“And what then?” The young man, rather bewildered and speechless, continued “I – I shall hope to take things a bit easier for a few years, enjoy my hobbies, and perhaps help my grandchildren to get started in life.”

“Yes, and what then?”

“Well, then I suppose I shall die.”

The older man looked closely at the young man once again as he asked the question, “And what then?”

God in His Word has provided the answer which this time the young graduate was unable to give. “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27. Here is a solemn fact which many besides this young man will not face.

Yet, for those who will, God tells us He has provided a full salvation, by accepting which we need have no more fears of that day or of anything else that may happen to us.

That provision is in the work of His Son – the Lord Jesus Christ who died, the just for us, the unjust; thus bearing the judgment due to sin, and having died for our sins, God raised Him up, to be our Saviour.

Reader, do you have qualms concerning your future destiny? If so, then turn to Christ now; who is “able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.” Hebrews 7:25.

One more word – DO IT NOW.

Acknowledging myself to be a lost sinner, and believing that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, I now receive Him as my own personal Saviour, and in token thereof sign my name below.
