I’m sure I’m not alone when the news about Kobe Bryant’s death completely shocked me.
At first I thought it was a fake news story, but once it was confirmed my heart instantly sank.
Not only for Kobe’s passing, but his 13 year old daughter’s death as well. And all the other passengers that were on the helicopter.
Such a tragic event. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Vanessa and the kids left at home, and all the other families affected by this.
Their life will never be the same.
With Kobe’s passing, I was really prompted in my spirit about life after death.
No one can escape death. No matter how rich or poor you are, educated or non-educated, color of your skin, etc.
Kobe was a billionaire and now none of that matters.
This life here on Earth is like a vapor.
James 4:14 says, “How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.”
Because death is inevitable, my question I am asking you today is, “Where are you going after you die?”
I hope each of us takes a moment to stop and think about what lies ahead.
I’m sure Kobe and Gigi had big plans for the day.
I’m sure they kissed their families good bye and said a nice see you later.
But guess what, their later never came!
Their other plans for the day never happened.
Lord, please help me to always steer others toward you. I know I am spending eternity in heaven with you and I want others to be sure that they will also.
If you haven’t ever given your life to Jesus Christ and you don’t know where you will spend eternity, please reach out today.
Just like Kobe and Gigi, you might not ever have a tomorrow.
Knowing what’s next is so important.
Having a relationship with God is so important.
Please know where you are going when you die.
