HOPE CHANGES EVERYTHING

It's Wednesday........... GOOD MORNING!!! As long as we have Jesus, we have HOPE! For our Worth is found in Him, not by our mistakes, or the trappings of this world. See that LIGHT? Oh YES, it's for YOU, so walk in it!
See that sin you're holding so tightly to? Look around, all you will see is darkness. I'd like to focus on Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." This Scripture has 2 Promises that we can be sure of.......... ONE: If we sin, we die. TWO: If we choose Jesus, we live. There are no IN BETWEEN choices. AND, God does not lie!
If we have heard the Name of Jesus sometime in our lives, we are responsible! For WHAT, you ask? RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT WE DO WITH HIM!!! You see, this life we are given, does NOT revolve around us. It's not centered in pride. At the end of our life, all that will matter is JESUS! All sin, and all competing loves, will fall flat before God. How God made you, is exactly how you will stand before Him. And, by the way, God does NOT contradict Himself. If the Bible says it, YOU CAN BELIEVE IT!!!
The day will come, when suddenly you will take your last EXHALE on this earth, and your first INHALE before God. If you show up WITHOUT JESUS, what do you think will happen? That God will have pity on you and give you a second chance? That all your hoping, and pleading and begging, will wear God down and He will give in to you? Well, let me tell you, YOU ARE IN FOR A BIG SURPRISE!!!
You see, ETERNITY is FOREVER! IT IS PERMANENT! IT IS NEVER-ENDING! All chances will never again, see the light of day! That "all-so-wonderful" sin you wouldn't let go of, cost you Eternity! You choose death in LIFE, so you will choose it in DEATH as well. Let me ask you............. Is that sin WORTH GOING TO HELL FOR???
Dear Friends, it's time you make a choice! The life can be snuffed out of us in an instant! ARE YOU READY??? To face ETERNITY??? "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows." (Galatians 6:7) You sow death, you will reap death. You sow life, you will reap LIFE! And, don't you believe for a single second, that "good people go to Heaven, and bad people go to hell". The "religious" will not enter the Kingdom of God! The people you will see in Heaven, are simply, FORGIVEN...........
"Jesus says to him, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me." (John 14:6) "Unless you are born again, he cannot see the kingdom of Heaven." (John 3:3) God sent Jesus to pay the price of our sin. Was it cheap??? AH, NO! He had to pay for it WITH HIS LIFE! If it weren't for the Shedding of His Blood, there would be no Forgiveness! No reason for living! A useless, hopeless, worthless, empty life! But because God loved us so much, He had to make a way for us to come to Him!
But there has to be REPENTANCE, and the giving up of our life to follow Jesus. "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." (Jeremiah 29:13) "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God." (Ephesians 2:8) You don't have to STRIVE to get it! No amount of good works will make you WORTHY ENOUGH! SO, if the wages of sin is death, or the gift of Life is Jesus............ What wages are you, WILLING TO PAY!!!
