Life is full of troubles and pain and sometimes…joy! It is also filled with disappointment and other problems that we can’t fix…but God is always near us. Many times we look around and see so much pain and problems and we feel that God doesn’t care and He isn’t in our lives. If you have never given your heart to Him, He still cares about you. He loves you more than you could imagine because He sent Jesus to pay the price for your soul and for all of the sins in your life and mine. Yes, God cares for us even when we feel alone and abandoned by everyone else He is still there.
Where are you in your relationship with God? If you have only attended church occasionally or on holidays then you have heard about Him and you’ve heard about Jesus but that isn’t enough. Your eternity is still in the balance. If you don’t believe in Jesus for your salvation and choose to turn away from your old life and follow Him then your eternity is going to be with the fallen angels and Satan.
If you feel His touch in your heart and you choose to follow Him as your Savior then your eternity will be with Him. Just as the thief on the cross believed in Him and he was with Jesus in Paradise that day! We can’t do anything to determine our eternal home except to believe in Jesus for our salvation because He is the only way to Heaven! There are other religions that claim to have an eternity in store for them but only Jesus paid for your salvation and He is coming back one day to rule the Earth for one thousand years!
Make sure of your eternity while you still can because only in this life can you choose. Once you have died, the choice has been made and your destination is set. Make sure it is an eternity with Jesus.
