"Death or Life?"

“Death or Life?”


For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!                Romans 5:17


We live in a world of uncertainties.  We are embarking upon a new year, which holds a lot of uncertain situations of life.  Will we be READY for whatever we might face in the coming year?


One of the things that we will find to be CERTAIN, is the reality of DEATH.  Even though we don’t like to think or talk about that one aspect of our life, it is STILL a very REAL and CERTAIN inevitability that all will face, unless Jesus Christ comes to RAPTURE His people from this poor, sin-ridden world. 


We ALL need to come to grips with the fact that we will, at some point and time in our lives face physical death.  And we need to NOW ask ourselves the question:  “Are we READY?” We do not know WHEN or HOW, but we know it WILL happen.  Death is NO respecter of people.  It comes to the young and healthy as well as the old and weak.  No one has a contract telling them when they will die or guaranteeing them the next five seconds of life.   So every day we face the fact that we aren’t guaranteed the next breath.  EVERYONE, Believer or Unbeliever will face a physical death.


However, you also face the possibility of a spiritual death, if you have NOT come to Jesus Christ for the SALVATION of your soul.  A spiritual death will be a separation from God and ALL that is good.  It is a guarantee that you WILL spend ALL eternity in a HORRIBLE place called Hell, and will experience a lot of torment, torture, pain, heartache, misery and despair for ALL of eternity.  


There is however, the opportunity for you to escape a spiritual death, through your acceptance of God’s gift of undeserved grace, through the OBEDIENT work of His Son Jesus Christ, on an old rugged cross and the shedding of His precious blood for the redemption of your soul.  When you come to Him and ACCEPT His gift, then you have a spiritual LIFE for ALL eternity, in Heaven with God the Father and His Son. 


You can obtain this gift by:  CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your Heart, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be READY for your eternity with Him, in Heaven.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
