Where will you spend Eternity?
This is the most important question facing mankind. We are eternal beings and when we die our soul will spend eternity somewhere. Hebrews 9:27 tells us “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” The Bible teaches that there are only two options - Heaven or Hell.
What gets me to Hell?
The bad news is, you don’t have to do anything in order to spend eternity in Hell. Jesus said in John 3:18b “but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten son.” Whenever we break God’s law it is sin and Romans 3:23 explains that our sin is the reason why we face God’s judgment - “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” We are sinful people, and that sin has consequences. Romans 6:23a describes this punishment “For the wages of sin is death.” This means separation from God for all eternity. This indeed is bad news, but God has provided a way to escape sin’s penalty.
What gets me to Heaven?
The good news is, God has provided a substitute to die in our place: Jesus Christ. Romans 6:23b says “but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” God sent His perfect Son Jesus Christ to die on your behalf and pay sin’s penalty. In John 3:16 Jesus said, “For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven; He died on the cross and rose again in order to pay for your sin debt. Will you trust Christ as your payment? Will you accept Jesus as your Substitute? Take a few moments and ask Jesus to forgive your sins and trust Him as your Savior. “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” - Acts 16:31
