Can you imagine living with God, and always singing His praises? That is the guaranteed future for those who know the Lord Jesus as their Savior. I had a “discussion” with a relative recently who declared that there are all kinds of ways to get to Heaven. Not true, according to God’s Word.
Jesus Himself told us that He is the Only Way to the Father. So, those living under the delusion that you can believe in almost anyone or anything and still go to Heaven are just wrong. I don’t say that lightly because I try to be very open-minded about a lot of things. But I call sin, sin and I tell people that the only way to Heaven is by believing in Christ as Your Savior. Is that all there is to it? Just say a sinner’s prayer and then you continue doing what you were doing before? No! A resounding no! Those who truly believe that Christ came to die for their sins repent and their lives are changed. Repent means to turn away from; so once saved, you turn away from your sins and start living for the Lord of your life, the One who offers eternal life. There are too many people calling themselves Christians who are still wallowing in the filthiness of sin. If that is true, then Christ died in vain, and my Bible says He died to call you OUT of your sin, not so you could just stay in it. Neither does that mean that you say the sinner’s prayer and you are instantly perfect. Nope! That’s not true either. This walk with Jesus is a daily picking up our cross, remembering His sacrifice and being willing to live for Him just as He died for us. So, why do we do that? Because we want to live in Heaven for eternity and sing praises to God forever! And because we love the Lord Jesus with all of our hearts souls, minds and strength! Sounds so cool to me. In the meantime, we are here to encourage one another in the faith.
I am not able to be with you physically, but through the wonders of technology I can write encouraging words online and hope that they help you some way in your walk with Christ. In the meantime, remember to share Christ everywhere you go, in every way that you can. Be the one who makes a difference!
Have a blessed day!
