Take a look at the line above and take note of the dot right in the center of it. The line represents eternity and the dot, it represents your life. How insignificant could you possibly seem in the scheme of things after seeing it? But that is what our lives here on earth look like in the scheme of eternity. However insignificant it may seem God does not see it that way.
The dot only represents our seventy or eighty years of life. There is more after we die and it is called eternity. We have to be super blessed because God gave us an opportunity to continue on in eternity. He gave us a free will and the ability to decide for ourselves what way and how we want to end up. The only catch in the whole thing is there are only two choices on where we are going to spend eternity and everyone is going to spend eternity in one or the other. The choices God gave us are either Heaven or Hell. The choice is yours totally. Nobody else will be making that decision for you; it is you and you alone.
John 3:16 says, for God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son. That whosoever believed in Him would have eternal life. Choice one, receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior and believe in Him and trust Him and you will spend eternity in Heaven. Choice two, reject Jesus and trust only in the world and you will spend eternity in Hell. Heaven is filled with peace, joy, laughter, love, and happiness. Hell is filled with agony, torment, and pain and burning. There are your two choices and as the bible says choose today who are you going to serve, Jesus or the world. You cannot serve them both. You must make a choice and I pray that you make the right one.
It was just a few years ago that I was in a situation that required me to make a decision. It is obvious which one I chose and I will never regret choosing Jesus. I have heard many people make the statement against God and against Jesus and all I can do is pray for them and remind the Lord that they have no idea what they are saying or doing. That is the truth in every shape and form; they have no thought of what they are doing or how one day it will affect them. One day there is going to be the sound of a trumpet and it will be too late. After that trumpet has sounded you cannot say OK I will choose Jesus, it is too late, your eternity has been chosen by you and you have no one else to blame.
God only gave us so long on that line of eternity and He let us decide for ourselves what we were going to do with that time. There have been many who have made the decision to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, just as there have been just as many or more make the decision not to. For those who may have chosen not to accept Jesus and they have passed away there is no chance of repentance. For those who have not chosen Jesus and are still living there is still time (I hope) for them to make the right decision.
Our world has become a Sodom and Gomorrah and I am certain that soon and very soon God is going to return. If it is you who have been saying there is no God and you are doing great on your own, you may want to re-evaluate your words and your life. This is not a game and eternity is at stake. You have a decision to make and I pray you make the right one. I know that there will be many who will never see heaven because of their stubbornness and will spend eternity in hell, but as long as God continues to give me breathe I will continue to preach the gospel and tell everyone who will listen about how much God loves them and how much He has for them. There is no compromising or watering down the gospel because some don’t want to hear it. It is God loves you and that is a fact. God loves you so much that He gave His very best, His Son, that you may have life and have it to the fullest.
You have a choice to make. One day soon God is going to return and if you don’t know Jesus as your Lord and Savior I hope you make the right one. God loves you and when you understand that you will know what I am talking about.
Remember where you are on the line of eternity.
