NBA legend Kobe Bryant passed away Sunday morning.
The 41-year-old and his second eldest daughter Gianna were among nine people confirmed dead, according to TMZ.
He leaves behind wife Vanessa, and three of their four daughters; Natalia and Bianca and their newborn Capri.
Friends, let’s genuinely pray for their family, and those close to him. They will need to feel the love of Jesus at this moment so much more than ever.
We all know that we will each face death, but we don’t know when.
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27
So my genuine question for you is this: Do you know where you will be after you die?
“If you confess with your mouth ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.” Romans 10:9
That’s it, friends. We need to openly say that “Jesus is Lord.” When we vocalize it, we are acknowledging him. And then when we truly believe in our hearts that he died and rose again, our actions will show it.
We’ll find ourselves no longer interested in things we used to do, and if we start slippin’, conviction (aka the Holy Spirit) will be MASSIVE.
That’s how you’ll know if you’re saved, and will join Christ in Heaven one day.
