There is nothing more important than where you will spend eternity!

If you have never thought about where you will go when you die...now is the time to do so. Perhaps you received one of these tombstone cards with the question, "What is the most important part on this headstone?" What do you think? Take a good look at it.

Is the most important part your name? The date? That you were dearly loved? That you were someone's son or daughter?

The answer is surprising...

It's none of the above!

Did you miss it?

Most people do.

The most important part on the headstone is the dash in between the two dates. It represents all the days of your life here on earth. The bible tells us that life is like a vapor. Think about it. Your life appears for a little while and then it's gone. 

Have you ever thought about death? Where will you go after you die? Where will you spend all eternity when your life here on earth is over

Think about it. The ultimate statistic is that 33 people out of 33 people die! That means you won't escape death. No one will.  And eternity is a long time. In fact, just think, it's forever and never ends. There is no time in eternity.

We care about you and we want you to understand that there's nothing more important than where you go after you die. That's why someone gave this card to you.

Have you ever looked at yourself according to how God see's you? If not, here's what to do, evaluate yourself by the 10 Commandments to see how you measure up to God's standard of righteousness.

Have you ever lied (even once--fibs, white lies, etc.)? Have you ever stolen (the value is irrelevant)? Jesus said, "Whoever looks upon a woman to lust after her, has committed adultery already with her in his heart." Have you ever looked with lust? If you have said "Yes" to these three questions (by your own admission), you are a lying, thieving, adulterer at heart; and we've only looked at three of the Ten Commandments.

Perhaps you're thinking that the 10 Commandments were given a long time ago and are not relevant for today...but the bible gives us surety in the New Testament, "that no fornicator (a person who has sex outside of marriage), unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God." Ephesians 5: 5 (Italicize portion not in the original text).

Have you put God first in your life? Or have you created a false god to suit yourself; a god you feel comfortable with? If God judges you by that standard will you be innocent or guilty on the Day of Judgment? If you're honest and listen to your 
 conscience you know that you will be guilty, and end up in Hell.

The reality of that should strike terror in your heart! 



There's Good News!

God Himself made a way for sinners to be forgiven...Listen to this...

"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."  (John 3:16). Jesus Christ was fully God and fully man and was without sin. He suffered and died on the cross and then He rose from the dead, defeating death. You broke the Law and Jesus paid the fine with His precious blood for sinners! Today, here's what to do, confess your sins to God, repent (turn) from your sins, put your trust in Jesus to save you from eternal damnation, and you will pass from death to life. Only through Christ can God forgive you and grant you the gift of everlasting life.
