Most Important Question of YOUR Life!
We can take care of our physical bodies for only so long. All the makeup and vitamins will only work for a small amount of time and eventually it will wear out. We won't last forever. But what will happen when we die? Have you give that question much of any thought? Does it frighten you to think about eternity? 1 John 5:13 says that we can KNOW that we have eternal life and that God's Word is a clear path for salvation.
You need to realize.....
1. You are a sinner
Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
Countless mistakes are made in a day. From the moment you wake up to when you lay down to sleep I promise you that you've done something wrong. We all have and none of us are perfect.
2. You are deserving of death and hell.
Romans 6:23a "For the wages of sin is death..."
Revelation 20:14 "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death."
None of us are worthy to enter into the gates of Heaven. We have all disobeyed God and His Word. We will die 2 deaths. 1 physical and 1 spiritual. When you die physically your body will go to the ground but your soul will either go to Heaven or Hell.
3. Jesus Christ paid the penalty for your sin when he died on the cross.
Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
Romans 6:23b ".......but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
God knew that because of sin we wouldn't be able to gain Heaven and because of this he provided a way since he loved us so much. Jesus suffered, bled, and died on the cross to pay for your sin-all because He loved you! He sacrificed His life for yours. Then he rose again from the dead 3 days later!
John 14:6 "Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
So what do I need to do?
4. Simply repent (turn) from your sin and accept Jesus as your personal Savior!
Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
John 6:37b ".....him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out."
If this is something you haven't done please do! As it says in James 4:14, our lives are like vapors. We aren't promised tomorrow or even the next few hours or minutes in a day. Please take care of your eternal security before it is too late.
If you have gotten saved we would love to hear your testimony and what God is doing in your life! :)
