Perish the thought. I’m tellin’ you what.
If you think you can choose the dark side of life and good things will happen, perish the thought. It ain’t true. And it will never be true. Even if you get away with living on the dark side your whole life, what do you suppose happens then? If you’re not sure, is it worth a possible eternal life to bet your whole life here on earth? And I’ll let you in on a little secret. When I said “possible eternal life”…I meant definite eternal life. It’s a sure thing for those who shun the dark side in favor of the one true, living, loving Creator of Heaven and Earth.
Think about what you might be giving up.
If you’re not 100 percent sure what happens when you die, then here’s something to chew on for a bit. I might be right. You might actually have a shot at living forever. Of course, when I used the word “might” in those last two, short sentences, I meant “AM” and “WILL”. Yeah, I’m 100 percent sure there’s a God in Heaven who created all of the universe and every living thing in it. And I’m absolutely sure He made a way for every human being to live forever. He wrote a how-to book on the subject, and the evidence for its authenticity is almost beyond comprehension.
In that how-to book you’ll discover who amazingly simple it is to live forever. You could call it a one step program. That one step is…believe. Believe in Jesus, who was and is God, came to Earth as a sacrifice to God for all the bad things you and I will ever do. And when you do, His Spirit will live in you, and you’ll live forever. You’ll live through time without end in paradise. Why would you ever wanna risk losing that?
If you believe you can make your own Heaven, perish the thought.
You can’t trust everybody you meet. Even your own family members will betray you. This world is not a nice place. If you think it is, it’s time to take off the rose-colored glasses, have a strong cup of coffee, and wake up to reality. And NO, you don’t get to use the tired, old, worn-out phrase “your world is what you make of it”. First off, you’re not the only one in the world. Secondly, you’re not the ruler of this world. And finally, billions of other people would rather see you dead. Ouch! I know that’s harsh. But it’s true.
Ironically, we all end up taking the same long nap in the ground. The difference is…most go there believing it’s the last place they’ll be. But it’s not. You see, it’s like this…God created us. And He creates eternal souls because He’s eternal. So, your soul will either live forever or merely exist forever. And your choice, now, will determine whether that will be terrific or terrible.
Think it over today and choose wisely.
If you believe your life is awesome and couldn’t possibly get better, please reconsider today. Or if you think your life is horrible and couldn’t possibly get any worse, I urge you to look into God’s how-to book.
You can’t walk with the wicked and win.
Or stand with the sinners in sin.
You don’t have to lose, but you have to choose.
Today is the day to begin. ~ Tony Funderburk
