Did you know that millions of people spend dozens of hours each week watching dead people on TV. From Elvis to Lucy to Jimmy Stewart, the faces of folks who no longer exist entertain us. Time not only snatched their looks, it snatched their lives. Today, good-looking Hollywood stars are making movies so that tomorrow s generation can also pass the time by watching dead people on TV. Time makes today tomorrow s memory. Weeks seem to pass us by like blurred telephone poles flashing past the window of this speeding car called life. Have you ever had thoughts that you were compelled to keep to yourself? Like thinking, It makes no sense that the whole of humanity is heading for death, and instead of seeking a cure to the aging process, we are searching for intelligent life in space or for a cure to the common cold. No one seems concerned about our big problem. No one even talks about death. But now that I have found that God has provided a cure, salvation through Jesus Christ, for man s greatest disease, death, I cannot and will not stop talking about it.
Let s assume that the average person dies at 70 years old. Then if you are 20 years old, you have just 2,500 weekends left to live. If you have turned 30, you have 2,000 weekends left until the day you die. If you are 40 years old, you have only 1,500 weekends left. If you are 50 years old, then you have just 1,000 weekends, and if you are 60 years old, you have a mere 500 weekends left until the day death comes to you.
Further down the road . the end of the highway as they say, may be sooner the we think. We will so be ushered into the presence of God. For those trusting in Jesus Christ, death has been defeated. But the highway of the unregenerate will take them to horrific disaster. Their end will be eternal torment in hell. In light of such terrible thoughts, brings me to wanting desperately to confront you with reality by reminding you that we all have an appointment to keep. Do you know how may weekends you have remaining?
If there was one chance in a million that Jesus Christ has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, then you owe it to your good sense to look into it.
A teenage boy once took his younger brother to a movie called The Scarlet Pimpernel. The seven-year-old watched in horror as, during the height of the French Revolution, aristocrats were executed by guillotine. The guillotine was surrounded by old hags, who shrieked for joy as each head rolled into the basket and was then held high for the crowds to see. The young boy began thinking how horrific it must have been to be waiting on death row, and then taken to the town square and put to death in such a manner. However, as life progressed, he realized that this was the plight of every human being. All of humanity has a large holding cell, with bright lighting, good ventilation, and a big blue roof. We can travel around this great world and enjoy its pleasures, but we are still in a holding cell, waiting for the moment when the great chopper of death falls upon us. We are all part of the ultimate statistic: ten out of ten die.
So the big problem is ten out of ten people die. Have you found the cure for man s greatest disease, death?
You may ask me if I am serious?
I am deadly serious. If you will repent and trust Jesus Christ, God will free you from your greatest oppressor. Do you ever think about death?
Are you afraid of dying?

Do you consider yourself to be a good person?
