When you go to bed at night, there is a chance that you might not wake up. Anything could happen form A to Z, to prevent you from seeing the light of day.
Since that is the case, we are speaking about preparation for the soul. Everyone should obey the gospel and be baptized for the forgiveness of sins. To have all past transgressions washed away is a wonderful thing and should you die; nothing will stand in the way of entering heaven. So, arise reader, be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord. Acts 22.16
