What Is Your Life?

What is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
James 4:14

These words are most frequently used to warn sinners of the urgent necessity for them to get right with God. They certainly should make every careless soul think of the brevity of life, the certainty of death, and the solemnity of eternity. If you come to this day still in your sins, you should stop and consider this word from God. You know the gospel. You know you should call upon the Lord to have mercy upon you. You know that tomorrow it may be too late for you to call. Call upon Him today and you will find that He will have mercy and will abundantly pardon (Isa. 55:7).

Yet James originally directed these words to Christians. They had become very careless about spiritual things. They were consumed with the here and now, this life with its pleasures and profits. They took time for granted and made their plans as if they were certain to be around for a long time.

Is that not how all too many of us live? We need to take Jamess rebuke seriously and personally. We need to grasp again some basic facts. First, our hold on life is very tenuous. Second, at best our life will be brief. Third, in this brief life what matters is not where we have travelled or what we have gained, but how we have responded to the will of God.

In the light of these things, how does your life measure up? What is your life? What motivates it? What has it accomplished? The Lord asks the questions, and He will have honest answers.

The business of our lives is not to please ourselves but to please God.
Matthew Henry
