Getting Lost Is Not Fun!

For me, I hate to get lost. Getting lost is not fun, but with a little help, we can find our way home. 

Unfortunately, there are some people in this world that are spiritually lost. 

As Christians, we have been commanded by Jesus to go and make disciples of all men.

Matthew 28:19 "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."

Bad Calls!

Sometimes in sports, referees make bad calls. When a bad call is made on our favorite team, we often get angry and want to tell that referee a thing or two. What is worse than a bad call in a ball game is when a judge gives a wrong decision and an innocent man or woman is sent to prison for life.
There is One who never makes a bad call nor a bad judgment. His name is Jesus. He has been given the authority to judge and His judgments are always right.

The bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:10 “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.”

So, what happens to people when they die?

Matthew 25:31-34, 41, 46 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. Then the King will say to those on his right, “Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.” Then he will say to those on his left, “Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.” Then they (nonbelievers) will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous (believers in Jesus Christ) to eternal life. ”

Believers will go to spend eternity with Jesus in heaven and the lost will spend eternity in Hell.

Have you accepted Jesus Christ as Lord?

The Biggest Loser

Now days it seems that many people are obsessed with losing weight. There are TV shows such as The Biggest Loser, that encourage contestants to lose weight in a short time. For believers in Jesus Christ, we have something to look forward to. We will all be given new heavenly bodies one day!

1 Corinthians 15:51-52 "Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed — in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed."

Personally, I am looking forward to my new heavenly body! 

2 Corinthians 5:1"Now we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands."

What is more important than a new earthly body is a new heavenly body. The condition is that a person must be saved. Unfortunately, those who do not believe in Jesus Christ and accept Him as Lord and Savior, will not get a new heavenly body!
