Everybody has an opinion, but when it comes down to the ultimate destine of our souls, don’t you want to be sure? As I look at some folks around me, some love ones; those I know from my childhood and beyond, I see one pattern. They all believe in God, but they have a 911 kind of relationship with God. Outside of the times of trouble, God is not even a consideration. They don’t even ponder on the reality that God is worthy to be praise, that we must worship God and that we must trust him.
I am asking you two questions: 1) If you die today, what is your final destination? Don’t tell me you don’t care. You are still wearing a mask, some of you guys are wearing two masks and a face shield, even when you are by yourself in your car you are masked up, you are still social distancing and you have not hug anybody, not even your own mama in over a year. So, don’t tell me you don’t care about death. The second question is even more profound, 2) in what you based the answer to the first question?
Jesus tells us, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” John 3:3 (NIV) In John 14:6 Jesus also tells us, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (NIV)
Beloved, in order to be a part of the Kingdom of God’s family we must be born again, and we must remember that nobody goes to the Father unless they go through Jesus. In Christianity you can’t have it your way; as a matter fact, Christianity encourages us to die to self (Matthew 16:25). Christianity is not about exalting self; there is no room for arrogance… NONE! We live to give glory to God (First Corinthians 10:31). In the things of God, we don’t establish our own conditions; those conditions are established by God and God alone. I hope you start meditating in these questions before is too late.
