Most of us live our lives day to day and really don’t think about eternity until we are at a funeral or at someone’s bedside who knows they don’t have long in this world. But why don’t we? I mean, if you are a Christian or a Muslim or a Jewish person who is devout in their chosen religion, eternity is present in your religion! So why don’t we live our lives with at least some idea of entering into eternity?
I think it has to do with the fact that most of us don’t like to pack. We don’t really like to get ready to go anywhere, even if we like to travel. Getting ready for a trip is tedious and boring and not really any fun at all but in order to enjoy your trip it needs to be done. Getting ready for eternity doesn’t involve packing or travel accommodations or tickets, but it does involve making sure that you have your faith bound up in Jesus and your belief in Him as your Savior needs to be solid!
No amount of good living or moral living or works or money will buy you a ticket to Heaven. Belief in Jesus as your Savior and walking with Him every day expecting His return and looking for Him in all of your life’s endeavors will give you expectant hope in Him! Living your life as a Christian is about the most denied faith in the world today because there are so many “false prophets” stating that there are many ways to get to Heaven.
This is blatantly FALSE!! Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man comes to the Father except through Me.”
I know this sounds elitist and narrow but the way to eternal life is a path, not a highway and it only goes through Jesus Christ. Seek Him in your worship, learn about Him as your Savior and ask Him to be your Savior so that your travel into eternity will be a smooth trip.
Believe in the Person of Jesus Who did sacrifice everything for each of you.
