Tell them NOW, before they are gone

In church yesterday I recieved a note from my friend Marie. Her heart was broken as she told of her friend who had died and she wasn't sure if she went to heaven. "Could you please put this on the internet?" she asked. I didn't say anything, just folded the note and put it in my purse.

This is the note:
Dear Sue,
I am thinking of you and praying for you. You were a good friend and had a heart of gold. I love you girl.
Marie....God bless you

It's so sad not to know if our friends pass over from this life to the next and not know for sure if they are in heaven. I remember clearly the day my friend passed away. Her name was also Sue. Yet, it was a good thing to know that Sue had given her heart to Jesus. There was no gray areas of doubt about where she is today.

I have two messages in this short post.
If you want to know for sure if you are going to heaven, read John 3:16. 'For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth on him shall be saved." KJV

The other message is this...tell your friends now. After they are gone is too late to pray for them. Tell them now, tell the truth in love. If you love someone tell them now. Tomorrow might not be here for them.
