People are obsessed with life; no one wants to die. In fact, we are scared to death of dying.
Most of us are familiar with the saying, "You only live once." But we have to ask ourselves an all-important question: What happens to us after we die?
For most people, death is either a great mystery or a subject of great denial. However, the fact remains - we all die. What if this life is not all there is? What if there actually is life after death? If so, who can tell us what happens after we die? Because of His firsthand experience in heaven and His knowledge of the future, Jesus can. He presents us with three basic truths about the subject of life after death:
- There is life after death.
- There are two destinations from which everyone must choose.
- There is a way to ensure you make the right choice.
Right now, you may be dying of thirst, but you don't have to perish in your thirst. Likewise, you may be overcome with sin, but you don't have to die in your sins. There is something you can do, right now, to ensure that when you die, you will have everlasting life and happiness.
The most important thing you must do in this life is to make sure you don't die in your sins.
God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. - John 3:17 (NLT)
