The Waiting Room for the Dieing

Posted: April 30, 2012 in Uncategorized

When I woke up Sunday morning, I realized I had just had an amazing dream. In this dream I saw what was a room full of people on gurnies. There were loved ones gathered around them, and everyone seemed to be at some differing degrees of death’s door. When I asked someone what was going on, they said this is the waiting room for those who are dieing. Wow, I remember thinking, I have to get busy and make sure they all know about Jesus.

So I began to go from gurney to gurney and share the Gospel with each person. It was extremely vivid. When I woke up, it occurred to me that people are like that. We are all in the process of dieing. From the moment we are born, we begin the death walk, so to speak. We are not guaranteed tomorrow, and we encounter people everyday that we may never see again.

In my dream, sharing the gospel was extremely urgent. Why isn’t it that urgent without seeing people on a gurney looking almost dead? Why don’t we sense the urgency of sharing with everyone we meet?

We may never have another opportunity better than the present. I suggest we see each person that comes into our lives as a divine appointment and an opportunity to tell them about the incredible love of God for them, and the urgency of placing their faith in Christ.
