You were created, by God, to live forever.
Your time on this earth will determine whether you live forever in Heaven, or forever in Hell.
And contrary to what you may be thinking, this does not depend on the amount of good, or the amount of evil you do on this earth.
It depends on one thing, and one thing only: Belief in Jesus Christ.
Belief means more than just agreeing with the facts about Jesus.
Belief means you admit that He is God. And that there are no other Gods. And that you accept His terms for your entrance into heaven:
- You have to admit you don’t deserve to go to heaven. You have sinned. You deserve Hell.
- You have to admit Who Jesus is. Jesus is God. He lived a sinless life on earth. He took your punishment for your sin on Himself. He died on the cross to fully pay the price for your sin. He died so you wouldn’t have to go to Hell. He rose again from the dead, because He is God. He lives now. He is coming back.
- You have to accept the gift He is offering you, and bow your knee to Him. He is offering you eternal life in heaven. You can’t be good enough for it. You have to just accept it. You need to turn away from the sins you love so much, and tell him genuinely that you believe in Him and want to do things His way from this point on. You know He’ll have to help you do that, but there’s no doubt it is what you want.
If you do this, you will spend your forever in Heaven.
If you don’t, you won’t.
If you realize the choice you can make, and put it off, there is a very good chance you won’t be back at this crossroads ever again in your life here on earth. Jesus Himself brought you to this crossroads – it’s up to Him, not you, whether you ever come here again.
Your forever begins now.
