Repent sins now, before the last call
One thing is certain. We’re all going to die. Every day that we exist is another day closer to our death. Yes, we have a short time on the planet. 75-80 years is our life expectancy. Some people, if they are fortunate, live to be 100. But then what? Do we just cease to exist, or is there really life after life?
Most of us go through life unconcerned about God until we get close to death. Then all of a sudden an afterlife is pretty important. If there is an afterlife, and I believe there is, will we get to go to Heaven or will we be lost? Specifically, we need to ask Jesus Christ to forgive our sins and ask him to come into our heart.
In the book of John, 14:6, it states by Jesus “I am the truth, I am the way, and I am the life and no man comes to the Father but by Me.” This scripture makes it pretty clear that you cannot go to Heaven unless you believe in Jesus.
Now is the time to repent of our sins. When comes the last call we want to be ready. Most people become ill before they die, but many die suddenly, in wars, in car accidents, heart attacks and other quick deaths. That is why we don’t want to wait. I don’t believe we can ask for forgiveness after we die.
Like the poet Shakespeare wrote, “To be or not to be; that is the question.” It’s up to us folks. Now is the time to ask Jesus to come into our lives.
