We will all come before Jesus in judgement. Since death comes sooner than we think it is important to repent while we can.
Ecclesiastes 8:6-8 (KJV)
6 Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man is great upon him.
7 For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be?
8 There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
