“Our deadline for leaving town was definite and I treated it as such. I carefully thought about the closets that needed tidying, the showers that needed scrubbing, the sheets that needed washing. And while the deadline for the end of my life is yet unknown, it is indeed definite. Our ends are imminent.
And we only have this lifetime to accomplish whatever it is the Lord has tasked us with. When you and I arrive in heaven, it will be final. We will never again be able to share the gospel, offer a cup of cold water in Jesus’s name, alleviate suffering, magnify his name amongst people who don’t know him.”
