If you died today, where would you go?

The golf course does not get to be one of your choices.
Written by Theodore Wright.
 

Some people put off the issue of where they will spend eternity and think only of enjoying this life. Do they believe they can put off the decision until they are dead and then decide whether to go to Heaven or Hell? Sorry, but is does NOT work that way. This does not become a choice after death nor one that can be turned back from when you die. Neither can we, in this life, simply pick a destination of Heaven, instead of Hell, without pending conditions.

There is only one way to be saved to get to Heaven. You must place your complete and undivided trusting faith in God solely thorugh His Son Jesus Christ to save you and get to Heaven OR ELSE you will face the consequences of Hell. Do you like enjoying the mere pleasures of this life so carefree that you do not care where you will spend eternity? If you are going to make up your mind, do so before you die.
 

Let me point out that you do not know when you will die. Your decision whether or not to trust Jesus as your Savior is paramount. Jesus Christ is not just simply “fire insurance” to protect you. He is the way of life through whom you will live better. God will have rewards for us in Heaven as well. Jesus said…

I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. – John 10:10b NKJV

 

As for the illustration, do you see the woman in the picture. The woman represents you in life. (Don’t get sassy, smart ass, or queer about this guys since this is only a drawing intended to demonstrate a point.) You have a choice whether to believe in Jesus and go to Heaven or to not make the decision to believe in Him and go to Hell. Jesus paid the price for our sins on the cross, shedding His blood, so we would not go to the penalty of Hell but to will be freely granted eternal life.

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 6:23 NKJV

 

If you make no choice to trust Jesus to save you, indeed, you will be taking the path to Hell. There are some people who already know that Jesus Christ has given them the free gift of eternal life and the forgiveness of sins. They trust in Him for it and know they are going to Heaven due to the promises of God in Scripture such as…

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. – John 5:24 NKJV

 

Most people are on the wrong path and are going to Hell. They do not believe or want to believe they are going there. These people may actually be flattering themselves to believe they are going to Heaven even when they do not believe the gospel of Jesus Christ to get there.

If you died today, NO! You would NOT get to go the golf course for another game. You’ve already had your last one. If you were at the golf course, that stroke you had would have been your last. Yet, right now you are reading this message to you. Therefore, be eager to repent, place your trusting faith in Jesus, and receive the gift of everlasting life with the pardon of all your sins. Heaven awaits!

Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. – 2 Corinthians 6:2b NKJV
