STOP! Where are you going?
Please stop and answer this question. Do you know where you are going?
Our lives are becoming increasingly busy. We have many modern conveniences and technological advances that are supposed to simplify our lives. However, many of us are preoccupied and over committed. We are pursuing "legitimate" things such as education, careers, raising families, and trying to meet financial responsibilities. The entertainment industry spends millions of dollars trying to captivate our attention. These and countless other "things" consume us and may even be desensitizing us to what really matters in life. We hardly have time to stop and think! Please...take a few moments to think now!
Do you know where you are going when it's too late for you to control your eternal destiny? Where are you going when you die?
The choice is yours! This is a sobering question. There is a day coming when we will all face the Creator of the universe. Everyone will have time for that appointment. Are you ready? Do you ever ask yourself the following questions?
What is the purpose of my life?
Why do I exist?
Does my life have meaning?
Do I have any direction?
If you are like most people you are looking for peace, joy contentment, and a sense of worth. You want to be loved. All of this can be found in a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Christ is the answer and solution to your questions and problems!
There are many substitutes but none bring lasting fulfillment.
Friend, God loves you so much! You are very special to Him. He has wonderful plans for you and He wants a personal relationship with you. Psalm 34:8 says, "Oh taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him."
You may have heard these things before, but never personally experienced Christ's love for yourself. You may even think you have to clean up your life first, but you don't! He is willing to take you just like you are. Everyone has sinned and comes short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). That is why Christ died for us.
What you need to do is believe in Him, and thankfully accept His salvation as a free gift. Repent of your sins and turn around.
Once you have done this, then He can clean up your life. The best we can do by ourselves is absolutely worthless without Christ (Isaiah 64:6).
Soberly consider the following verses:
Matthew 11:28 "Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
Romans 10:13 "For whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
John 3:16,17 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved."
Without Christ, you will never know real peace. A dreadful future awaits you and you will be eternally without Him in hell.
What you choose to do with Him today, will determine what He will do with you tomorrow.
