Life is Short

I know what it means to live in this world without any purpose except working for my next paycheck and checking off things on my bucket list before death takes me someday. Have you wondered what it would profit you to gain all the social status, wealth, and toys you ever wanted? Have you considered the brevity of your life? Most importantly, have you asked yourself if you died tonight, where would you go?

Sin has Consequences

You must've noticed that each time you don't tell the whole truth, waste time doom scrolling on your phone within your hours at work, or consider your partner first when you are tempted to be unfaithful toward her, there is an inner voice that either accuses or excuses you based on your actions. That little thing is called a 'conscience' that God gave you to guide you in making moral decisions and judgments. The Bible teaches us that our conscience can become dulled and hardened through sin. Though you can enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time, they have far-reaching and devastating consequences that can affect various aspects of our lives.

Time is Fleeing

It was just yesterday that I was playing hide-and-seek in my hood with my buddies. Now, I don't do that anymore. I also knew most of my friends, family, and other less important phone numbers by heart. Now I hardly remember my phone number. What's happening? I am getting old. I forget things. I don't have the same energy that I used to have when I was in my early 20s. And, I know I am not going to live past 120 years or 90. I can tell you that!

Time is passing away.

Hell is Real

In contrast to popular opinion, Satan doesn't rule in Hell, God does. You don't want to end up in there because it is where your nightmare comes true. If you find pleasure in sin and continue to disrespect God, Hell is like a jail room for criminals like you. Once there, you will be kept until you are called to stand before the Supreme Judge of the universe to give an account of your life.

Once you die and enter Hell, there will be no more second chances given.

Jesus Christ is the Only Way to Heaven

God came down from Heaven in the form of a human being to pay the penalty that we deserve for our sins. Jesus died on the cross as if He was a criminal. His body was placed in a tomb and it was heavily guarded by Roman soldiers. But on the third day, He has risen back to life. After 40 days later, He ascended to heaven and He sat down on His throne next to His Father.

His resurrection means that now He is our highway to Heaven.

Repent of Your Sins & Turn to Jesus

"[N]ow God commands everyone everywhere to repent of their sins and turn to Him. For He has set a day for judging the world with justice by the Man He has appointed, and He proved to everyone who this is by raising Jesus Christ from the dead.”" (see Acts 17)
