Life is a vapor and then its gone (a Biblical perspective)

No Christian knows what tomorrow will bring. Christians must be accountable to God every minute, every hour, every day. The Bible teaches that today is the day of salvation and holy living. Don’t wait for tomorrow. Christians are to live according to the will of God  in the present tense for this very reason. Never should salvation be taken lightly or for granted enough to miss the mark today. Life is only vapor and then it vanishes away. Reasons are many to stay in harmony with Christ who saved you and redeemed your soul with an His amazing Grace. Boasting is a sin. High-mindedness is dangerous. Be careful how you behave. You’re accountable. Do good because the heart is cleansed by Christ who bought you for a price. The Bible teaches life is a vapor and lasts for a little while and then its gone. I like what James had to say about this.

James 4:14-17…Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

About rickroehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.

    Only one life it will soon be past, only what’s done for Christ will last.

    Just today I also shared with someone that same scripture – that our lives are a vapor. Interesting perspective.
