late night television show a popular playwright was asked whether making a lot
of money concerned him. The studio audience went dead silent when he answered,
"No... what does concern me is the fear of
of us, like the studio audience, are too uncomfortable with death to think
clearly about our own eternal future. But the fact is that one day you and I
will die. We can live in fear of the unknown or we can take a moment to
consider what the Bible says about eternity. It may be the most important
moment of our lives.
let me ask you a simple question that will help you personally face the issue: If you died tonight, where would you spend
people, when asked that question, say something like this: "I’ve led a
pretty good life. I hope
that I’d go to Heaven." But they’re not really sure. Why are they willing to risk
their future on wishful thinking when the Bible tells how they can know for
sure where they will go after death? Perhaps because it’s so
humbling to face the fact that we are sinners in need of salvation. The
Bible says that we are sinners because we all fall short of God’s glory (Romans ). In our natural state none of us is
pure enough to enter Heaven. We need God’s cleansing and forgiveness before we
can come before Him.
into Heaven is not based on what we have done, but on what God has done for us
through Jesus Christ. The Bible says, "He that believeth on the Son hath
everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the
wrath of God abideth on him" (John ).
our own anger is often selfish and mean, we may find it difficult to understand
how a God of love can be angry. But God’s anger is pure and just. As the
supreme justice of the universe, He cannot allow sin to enter Heaven.
why God sent His Son to take the punishment for our sins so that we should not
have to face eternity in Hell separated from His blessings.
let me ask you the same question again: If you died tonight, where would you
spend eternity? Are you ready to stand before God with Christ as your Savior or
are you willing to face His judgment alone?
The choice is yours.
you choose God’s way, you can pray something like this: "Lord, I am
turning from my sin to Your forgiveness. Thank You
that Christ died for me so that I can spend eternity with You."
that heareth My word, and
believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into
condemnation but is passed from death unto life" (John ).
