WHEN I COME TO THE END OF LIFE'S ROAD

by Charles Robey
(Trussville AL)

When I've fought the last fight,

When my battles all are won
As I finish my earthly abode
All my burdens I'll lay down
In exchange for a crown
At the end of life's road

I will see all my friends
All the ones loved so dear
Who are in heavens estate
And my love ones I will see
Who are waiting there for me
Waiting just inside the gate

I will meet all the saints
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
Many others will also be there
First of all to see His face
Who on Calvary took my place
When we meet in the city so fair

When I come to the end of life's road
I will enter that heavenly abode
No more pain or misery I'll bear
No more sorrow or sin I will share
When I come to the end of life's road

Have you given thought to your final heavenly obituary? The Apostle Paul did, when he penned the following.

"For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time has come for my departure. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day -- and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing."(2Timothy 4:6-7)

Yes, some day we will leave this old world, either by a physical death or by God calling us home in His rapture of the saints. And, we will rest forever in one of two places- 1) In the presence of the living God or 2) Being separated from God in a place of torment. It's our call.

I once heard an individual say, "he did not believe in life after death, so he was not worried". My response to this statement is, " who is he, that he alone, a mere mortal man, can change the course of the all might God's plan for the ages.

"And inasmuch as it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this cometh judgment;" (Hebrews 9:27)

Yes, God does gives mankind a free will to chose good or evil. However, God's desire is that all will except His free Grace, by Faith.
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. ' (Ephesians 2:8-9)

See, Christ died, on Calvary's cross for your sins.

“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures” (1st Corinthians 15:3,4). It is Jesus Christ who died on the cross for sinners,
