“How you can face eternity with confidence” by Jack Graham
~Shared by Evelyn Johnson, August 2016
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
A World War II chaplain told the story of a young man he encountered on the battlefield after a particularly bloody day of fighting. The soldier was mortally wounded, and his life was ebbing away. With fearful eyes, the young man looked up at the chaplain and said, ‘Sir, will I live?’The chaplain knew it was hopeless, but didn’t know what to say. So he said to the soldier, ‘Son, are you a believer in Jesus Christ?’ And that boy said, ‘Yes, sir. The greatest day of my life was the day I became a Christian.’So the chaplain looked at that young man and said, ‘Then yes, son. You will live.’
Until Christ returns, each and every single one of us will one day make that journey from this life to the next. And all that will matter on that day won’t be how much you have, the good works you’ve done, or who your family was. What matters will be your yes or your no to Jesus.
Your eternal destiny hinges on that decision. And not only yours, but everyone you know and love. Don’t let another day pass without putting your eternity in Jesus’ hands. Thank God today that Jesus died for you, took away your sins, and gives you eternal life by faith. If you do that, you can step into eternity with confidence!”
