Heaven is a Choice

Posted by Cinda On May - 14 - 2013

work_gossipWhile working a temp job at the Broadmoor, I overheard a couple of ladies nearby. One of the gal’s comments broke my heart, not only for her but for others who may share the same belief. She said, “I sure hope I don’t go to heaven, I wouldn’t know anyone there and that would be the pits”.

Do people not understand heaven and what the alternative is? This is very scary. I wonder where people get their information from? Who is telling them these things? Is it the TV, radio, music, books, family beliefs handed down through the years? How very sad! The world’s idea of heaven is so far from the truth. Do they think heaven is unreachable? Undesirable? Too costly?

The people I have been around these few days can afford anything and everything. Yet, no amount of money can buy their eternity; their salvation. What some people have today will be the only Heaven they will ever see and it doesn’t even come close to what awaits those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ. My heart is breaking for them!

So this makes me wonder what do they know about hell? Do they realize there is a real place with a real devil that they will have to spend eternity with? With real fire, real torment, continual gnashing of teeth, no light, no peace, no comfort to ever be had. Do they realize what they are choosing is for eternity? That is a long time to live with regret and there is no way to change it once they die. “Just as man is destined to die once, and after that faces judgment.” Hebrews 9:27

Editor’s Note: The choice is ours. Heaven or Hell. And, it comes down to one singular decision. Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 Invite Jesus into your life and receive His gift of grace and everlasting life with Him. To learn more, click on “About” (above) and scroll down to our Statement of Faith. Choosing where you want to spend eternity will be the absolute most important decision you will ever make. And you don’t have to get your life together to do it! Jesus will do it for you and through you and it’ll be the most wonderful life adventure you’ll ever have.
