Do You Care?
By Rodney W. Francis
Friend, I want to challenge you. Do you care about your life? Do you ever stop and think where you are heading? You need to — NOW. One day you are going to pass from this world. What then? God declares in his Word that after death comes JUDGMENT (Hebrews 9:27 ). We cannot escape it. YOU will be there, and so will I. We have to give an account of our lives to God on that day. You may say, "I don't believe it." I challenge you: Does that alter the truth of God's Word? The Bible is true, and it is powerful — prove it otherwise.
GOD'S WORD tells us the way to escape the damnation of judgment... IF we will believe and receive it. God sent His only Son (Jesus) into this world to die for your sins and mine. Yes, friend, Jesus so loved you that He was prepared to suffer that cruel death to set you free from your sins; to give you real life. DO YOU CARE?
Think about this: Jesus said, "I am come that YOU might have life, and that YOU might have it more abundantly"' (John 10:10 ).
Think also about this: Jesus said. "I am the way, the truth, and the life: NO MAN COMES UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME" (John 14:6 ).
Do you want to go to Heaven? Then Jesus said YOU MUST come to Him to be able to come to the Father, Who is God.
You see, sin separates us from God; sin keeps us from the blessings of God; sin robs us of real life. What is the end of sin?
The Bible tells us: "The wages of sin IS DEATH; but the GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD" (Romans 6:23 ). Is He your Lord?
There is NO OTHER NAME under Heaven given among men whereby we can be saved! Do YOU believe that? If you don't — How will you stand on JUDGMENT day? How shall you escape if you neglect so great a Salvation?
Are YOU so good that you think you can live without God? Many think they are. But, my friend, do you care if YOU DIE WITHOUT JESUS CHRIST, Who is the only way to everlasting life?
Jesus wants to save you. Jesus wants you to know Him — that He is a wonderful Saviour — that He is the way to escape from the wrath of God.
The Bible further warns us that one day Jesus Christ is coming back, "In flaming fire, taking vengeance on them that know not God and that obey not the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ." DO YOU KNOW GOD? Are YOU obeying the Words of Jesus Christ as written in God's living Word? Will YOU take God's way of Salvation? Will YOU let Jesus Christ come into YOUR heart? The Bible declares in Romans 10:9 , "That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." That means YOU right now, call upon the name of the Lord -- ask Him to save YOU, and He will!
