WOULD YOU GO TO HEAVEN IF YOU DIED TODAY?
Chances are we have all entertained questions like; if I had a million dollars, I would… or if I were the boss, I would…but what if someone asked you “Would you go to Heaven if you died today?” If your answer is no, keep reading. If your answer is yes, keep reading.
The old saying is two things in life are certain…death and taxes. The Bible tells us that it is appointed once unto man to die and after this the judgment (Heb. 9:27). So, are you prepared for that day? Are you sure? God sent his only Son, Jesus Christ, to die for us so that we can be prepared. However, we have to do our part to obtain eternal salvation. If you answered no to the question above you may be asking, so what do I have to do? The Bible lays out God’s plan for salvation.
LIVE FAITHFULLY UNTO DEATH----Rev. 2:10
If you answered yes to the question above, are you sure? Are you following the last step (live faithfully unto death)? Are you living according to God’s standard, the Bible, not yours or someone else’s? Do you attend worship service and Bible study regularly? Do you study the Bible daily? Do you pray without ceasing? Are you planting and watering seeds for the kingdom? Are you forgiving those who need forgiveness? Are you serving in the Lord’s kingdom? Are you spreading kindness instead of bitterness wherever you go? Can people tell you truly are a Christian or would they say, “I didn’t know you go to church?” Ouch!
Eternity never ends. There are no second chances. Are you ready? Would you go to Heaven if you died today?
That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. 2 A large crowd gathered around him. So he got into a boat and sat down. All the people stayed on the shore. 3 Then Jesus used stories to teach them many things. He told them this story:
“A farmer went out to sow seed. 4 While he was scattering the seed, some of it fell by the road. The birds came and ate all that seed. 5 Other seed fell on rocky ground, where there was not enough dirt. It grew very fast there, because the soil was not deep. 6 But when the sun rose, it burned the plants. The plants died because they did not have deep roots. 7 Some other seed fell among thorny weeds. The weeds grew and stopped the good plants from growing. 8 But some of the seed fell on good ground. There it grew and made grain. Some plants made 100 times more grain, some 60 times more, and some 30 times more. 9 You people who hear me, listen!”
