What excitement!

You could hardly believe the excitement that the Royal Wedding produced, but it was immense. I am sure that many people really enjoyed the day and found it a happy diversion from the many other difficult issues they currently face.

But the world goes on.

British Boxing legend Sir Henry Cooper dies.

Col Gaddafi survives a very close call but it looks like members of his family die.

Firefighters struggle to contain fires on the mountains of Mourne in Northern Ireland.

Joy here, sadness there. Excitement in different places for different reasons - this is the world we live in.

You never know the moment you say. Life is uncertain, we don't know what a day will bring.

My simple message this week is - be prepared. Sounds like the Boy Scout Movement Motto. Generally we prepare for most things. Education, holidays, retirement etc etc.

Are we prepared for the next life, to meet our maker? The bible warns 'Prepare to meet God'.
It is possible to be prepared. God has made it simple for us. Listen to this verse from the Bible and rest on it for your eternal future.

'For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life' (John 3.16 - The Bible)

God has done all the preparing to save your soul and make you safe for ever. All you need to do is acknowledge your needy condition and trust Him to save you. Would you choose eternal life today. I pray that you will.
