Life is Short

In my early teen years I heard the cliché, “Life is short, and then you die.”

After my father died, my mind flashed back to a time when he was driving our family past a cemetery and he said, “People are just dying to get in there.” Family members and I laughed at his comment.

These truisms did not have an effect on me until I experienced the death of a loved one.

Reality is we are all going to experience loss of a loved one and death. Life beyond the grave is eternal. Are you certain of where you will spend your eternal life?

“He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.” John 3:36 NKJV

For us to be sure of our eternal destination we must receive salvation through God’s son, Jesus Christ. Salvation happens when you confess to being a sinner, repent of your sins, and ask Christ to save you and take control of your life. (Romans 10:9 & 6:23).

"Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God and my Savior. I want to live with you in Heaven forever. Forgive me of my sins. Come into my heart and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Take control of my life and teach me how to live for you. In Jesus’ name, Amen."

If you have prayed this prayer and accepted Christ please leave a comment.
