This Life Is Short!

As we all know, this life is short! One day someone will cash in your life insurance policy and you will enter eternity. Eternity is the life that begins the day our bodies die. Most of us do not want to think about death, but like taxes, it cannot be avoided!

You say you do not believe in Hell or you do not believe a good God will send anyone to Hell. Hell is real and God does not send anyone there. The only people who will spend eternity in Hell are those who choose Hell by rejecting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Jesus does not want anyone to perish and He is the only way to spend eternity in Heaven.

How does one get saved? Romans 10:9-13

"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

I Surrender All

  1. There is an old hymn that says "All to Jesus I surrender; All to Him I freely give; I will ever love and trust Him, In His presence daily live. I surrender all,I surrender all; All to Thee, my blessed Savior, I surrender all."

What this means to me is that I need to surrender all to Jesus in every part of my life! Which means what I watch on TV, what I look at on the internet, the people I hang out with, the music I listen to and the places I go. 

The question I must ask myself is "have I truly surrendered my all to Jesus?" If I have not given all to Him, let me repent and turn away from my sinful behavior. 

  1. Matthew 16:24-27 "Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done."
