Luke Perry’s abrupt end to his life and career is a reminder to us that none of us know when our last day may be. Even the rich and famous cannot buy immortality. The Bible says life it but a vapor (James 4:14).
If you died today, do you know where you are going? Do you have peace that you will be in Heaven?
We invite you today to prayer with us for salvation! For, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
Pray this today and let Jesus comes into your life!
