Oneday I was talking to my Grandmother about life and how fast time goes by. She is what some people would consider "old". She has great grandchildren and has lived a long life. Nana said that as she thought back over her whole life and how fast it went that it was like a vapour.
I'm sure you have heard the saying that "life is a vapour". It is a true saying, not because I think so but because the Word of God says so. The Bible says in James 4:14, "...for what is your life?" Then it answers the question for you by saying "it is even a vapour". My husband preached a message on this thought and I want to share it with you.
1. A Vapour is Passing...our life appears for a little while and then we are gone...so make sure you know where you are going when you die...Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no man cometh to the Father but by Jesus! John 14:6
2. A Vapour is Pivital ...it is a state between a solid and a liquid...it can become a liquid just as easily as it can become a solid depending on temperature change and pressure....our life is suspended between Heaven and Hell and we all have to make that one pivital decision to trust Jesus for salvation or not
3. A Vapour is Purposeful...water vapour produces clouds, which produce rain, which produce crops, which give food and life to people!! Every life is created for a purpose (Ephesians 2:10 We are God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works...)
4. A Vapour is Powerful...when steam is channeled and directed properly it had the power to create the industrial revolution...Therefore your life when directed by the Holy Spirit has the power to impact the world for Christ!!
