The Day You Die

Ask yourself, “when is the day I will die?” Is it tomorrow? Is it in 50 years? Will I die from a heart attack, old age or a car accident? No one really knows, but 1 thing is certain, that 10 out of 10 of us will die. No one will escape.
The Bible tells us that it is appointed for all men to die, and after that the judgment (Hebrews 9:27). God is a just Judge and must do what is right. He sees every lie we have told, every time we have cheated, every time we have acted selfishly, every time we have lusted in our heart for someone else’s spouse, every time we have cursed others in anger, every greed driven motive, every secret of mans heart and He sees that we have never loved Him, the One who gave us life and every good thing, the way that we ought too. The list could go on, but the fact is that we are very very guilty. If we are honest we will admit that all of mankind is worthy of hell and deserving of judgment. But God is rich in mercy, unlike humanity. Even though mankind has sinned against Him continually, He does not desire us to end up in Hell. He has offered us redemption through His Son Jesus Christ, who came 2000 years ago to pay the punishment for our sins. He diverted the righteous wrath of God off of us and onto Himself, taking the full brunt of the Fathers judgment so we wouldn’t have too. That is called love. He laid down His life for a world that is un thankful and disobedient. What a wonderful God. But for His sacrifice to apply to your life He requires you to confess and forsake your sins, even if you enjoy them, and put your trust in what Jesus did for you on the cross (his death, burial and resurrection). God will give you the gift of eternal life and erase your sins, but its your choice. You can continue in your sins and pay the full price on Judgment Day or you can turn in repentance and put your faith in Gods Son.
Please, if you have not, turn to Jesus today while you still have breath in your lungs. You are not promised tomorrow. I am pleading with you on Gods behalf: be reconciled to Him now. For Jesus will either be your Savior today, or your Judge on the Day of Judgment.
Love Jonathan Ball
