Let’s get one thing straight, you need to get straight with the Lord, by straightly, Getting with the Lord, before you get TO the Lord. The time and place to get it straight with God, is here and now! The moment of death or thereafter, is not the time to rectify oneself with the Almighty, now is the time!
Its like that old axiom, you cant get a job without the experence. But you cant get experience without getting the job! It’s probably the single most important thing you can do for yourself as well as for another. Its the one time in a persons life, when directions can lead to, “eternally lost” or “eternally found”!
You’re job is Get on that straight path and Stay on it, even if you have to walk it alone, its the only one that leads home!
