Jesus Christ is coming back soon. Our time on earth is temporary, we are passers-by. Heaven is our home. Yet, most times we carry ourselves as if we have arrived. But tomorrow or the next minute is never promised.
Jesus told us He will come like a thief; no one knows the year, the day, nor the hour. We live in denial. When people die, we lie to ourselves that we still have many more years to live; we do not ever see ourselves in that situation, that is, as no longer in this world. The enemy has deceived us into believing lies, we do not accept the truth.
Since Adam sinned, physical death became a reality for humanity, no one escapes it, except those believers who will still be alive during the second coming of Jesus.
The Bible tells us to ask God to help us number our days, so that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Knowing the brevity of life on earth and keeping that in mind helps us to avoid wasting time on things that do not matter. Get right with God. Confess your sins and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
Salvation is a gift and when we confess our sins Jesus forgives us and washes us as white as snow. Our sins are remembered no more. Then we turn away from sin and our lives are governed by God’s Law. Our works cannot save us, our ‘goodness’ or ‘niceness’ cannot save us. Jesus finished everything on the cross; He defeated sin and death.
Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ lest anyone starts boasting about his works. The greatest commandment given to us is to love God with all our being, and then to love others as we love ourselves. The Bible tells us that he who loves has fulfilled the law. This is because love covers all.
When we love God we obey His commandments. Nothing on this earth is worth losing eternal life. The enemy does not care about us; he deceives us into going against God’s will so that we burn in hell together with him. The devil has already been condemned into eternity in hell and he wants to take as many people to hell with him as possible.
The enemy poses as an angel of light, he deceives us with near truths, he knows the Word and tries to mimic that as much as he can; he is very cunning and manipulative.
Jesus is the only way and He left us with a manuscript which will ensure our entry into heaven. He showed us the way to eternal life. He is the way. He told us that no one goes to the Father except through Him.
We are given a choice to choose either life or death, but we are advised to choose life. We do it out of free will. And choosing life through Jesus Christ is the most important decision we will ever make. Choosing that narrow path and following it to the end determines where we will spend eternity. Those who choose Jesus, though they die, will live again. They will never see the second death. They will live with God eternally. May we choose wisely.
