This is for those who feel the need to be ready when God calls.
There are those that are afraid to die because they feel that their spiritual life needs improvement. So, how do you go about improving spiritually?
First step, consider what pleases God? Believe…
And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for the one who comes to God must believe that He exists, and that He proves to be One who rewards those who seek Him.
“And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
Faith needs right knowledge.
The Apostle Paul wrote this…
Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved. For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge.
Keep this Book of the Law (Bible) always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
How does one strenghten their faith even more?
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided to you.
A Christian author wrote: ‘Our minds are so much set on Earth that we are unaccustomed to heavenly thinking.’* So, since you have a desire to be right with God, then keep your eyes on the prize – that is, HEAVEN.
