"The Most Important Decision of All!"

“The Most Important Decision of All!”



Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.  The one who believes in Me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in Me will never die.  Do you believe this?        John 11:25-26


Jesus was speaking to Martha, the sister of Lazarus, at his burial site.  Jesus said to Martha, “Your brother will rise again.”  Martha replied: “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”  Then Jesus said to her, “I am the RESURRECTION and the LIFE.  The one who BELIEVES in Me will LIVE, even though they DIE; and WHOEVER lives by BELIEVING in Me will NEVER die.  Do you BELIEVE this?”


This is the MOST IMPORTANT DECISION a person will ever make in their life.  It’s NOT, “who will I marry?” or “what college or university will I attend?”  or “What profession will I have?”  Or even “How many children will I have?” 


There is NO decision that you will make in this lifetime that is, as IMPORTANT as, or more IMPORTANT than, BELIEVING that Jesus IS ALL that He claims to be.   Because WHERE you spend your ETERNITY will be determined on WHAT you believe and WHAT DECISION you will make concerning your belief. 


For those who BELIEVE that Jesus is the RESURRECTION and the LIFE, and that they will LIVE, even when they DIE, will receive ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven, and they will NEVER die.  One of the CERTAINTIES in this life is DEATH, and when you leave this earth in DEATH, the DECISION you make about ACCEPTING Jesus Christ as your SAVIOR and LORD, WILL determine your ETERNITY, HEAVEN or HELL? 


ALL the other DECISIONS you make in this lifetime are TEMPORARY.  They will cease to exist, when you die, but the DECISION you make about Jesus Christ is PERMANENT.  So the question you have before you, is, “Do you BELIEVE this?”  What is your DECISION?


If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are gambling with your ETERNITY.  You MUST make a DECISION, “Do you BELIEVE or NOT?   Come to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, and CONFESS your sins to Him, 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 make the MOST IMPORTANT DECISION of your life;  BELIEVING that JESUS IS THE RESURRECTION and the LIFE, and secure your ETERNITY in HEAVEN.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
