There are different ideas about where the phrase originated. Face the music. But most people know it means you’re gonna have to deal with the consequences of your actions.
Yeah, do bad stuff, and you’re gonna have to face the music.
But whether you do a lot of bad stuff or just a little, you’re still gonna have to deal with the consequences of your actions. Me too.
Fortunately God, the Spirit who created all material things, offers a way out of bad eternal consequences. And He won’t force anybody to accept His offer. Not one person who ever did or ever will go to Heaven was, or is, forced to go.
And the same is true of hell. Every person in hell chose to go there.
Please don’t be one of those people.
Your life, here on Earth, IS gonna end one day. And when that happens, you’ll either be gloriously happy to meet your Creator face to face, or you’ll be unbearably miserable when you face the music.
As much as I love music, I recommend you go for the first choice.
Face to Face
When we’re born into this world,
We can’t speak, and we can barely even see.
As we grow we see this life,
In which we landed…
Is a thread of well-designed complexity.
Each and every one of us
Had a beginning…
And so very small a spark of life sufficed.
Then we turned away from God
And started sinning…
And that put us face to face with Jesus Christ.
Face to face with Truth…face to face with Life.
Yeah, the Way to paradise is face to face
With the One who died and who lives inside.
Jesus Christ even loves us face to face.
When we leave this world, we’re
We can go to that eternal, perfect place.
When we make the choice of Life,
We won’t be stranded.
And we’ll get to see our Savior’s loving face.
