Did you know that on the journey of life you are able to chose a way that leads to a life that never ends?
To think that we can have a life that never ends seems strange. However, it is true. We are able to live after death. We know that death comes to everyone. Death has no special friend. Death does not care who is dead. And, death is final. You cannot turn back death.
There are many ways to think about death. We talk about the death of a dream. We talk about the death of hope. We sometimes talk about the death of the love of a friend.
Whatever we say about death, however, the words are full of pain.
Another way we talk about death is the death of the spirit of a person. The death of the spirit of a person is very serious. When the spirit of a person is dead, there is no contact with God. Therefore, it is important for us to think about the death of the spirit of a person.
No one wants to be dead with no contact with God. Death of the spirit of a person means that person will never have a life with God that never ends. No one has the power to live a life that does not end, so what do we do?
The answer is we must find someone who will give us the power to live a life that will never end. This is why people fear death.
One famous person on television said that he does not know what will happen to him after he dies. He said that feared the death of his body. He wanted to live a life that never ended. However, he said, he did not know how to get that kind of life. This famous person was full of fear.
Do we know what happens when we die? This is an important question.
Some people believe that after death of the body there is only darkness. However, how do people know that there is only darkness after death? Who told people that there is only darkness after death? Were these people ever dead? Did these people ever die and then come back to life?
How do the people that are full of fear know that what they believe is true? The simple answer is that they do not know what will happen when they die.
Only God knows what will happen when we die. And, God says in His book called the Bible that every person will be judged by God. Good people will go to live with God and never again die. God, however, said that bad people would never live with God.
So, each of us must be very, very good, or we will never live with God. God has also said that only one bad act is enough to keep us from a life with Him that never ends. That is a real problem; because, all of us has done at least one bad act. We have broken laws, perhaps. Or, we have said something that is not true.
There is good news, however. God has made plan for us to live with Him. Do you know about this plan of God for you to live a life that does not end? Only God has that kind of power. Only God can decide to let us live a life that never ends with God.
Here is how the plan of God works. God knows that without His help we are not able to live a life that never ends. God must help us to have a life that will never end. So, here is what God did.
God sent His Son to this earth to show us how to act. God named His Son, Jesus. His Son Jesus never made a bad choice. Jesus never did anything that was bad. Many people, however, did not like Jesus. So, these bad people killed the Son of God.
Then, people buried Jesus, the Son of God. After three God brought the Jesus back to life. God said that God would also bring us back to life. For God to bring us back to life; however, we must act the way God wants us to act.
We must follow the teachings of the Jesus, Son of God. We must do what the Jesus tells us to do. We must do good works at all times. We must also believe that God sent Jesus to give us a life that never ends.
Here is what the book that God wrote says,
Everyone who believes the Son of God will have life that never ends, that person will never die. Furthermore, God did not send His Son into the world to punish people. He sent him to save them! But everyone who does believe the Son of God will ever have a life that never ends. (John 3: 15-18 Simplified)
God is perfect and never does anything wrong. There is not anything wrong with God. Everything God does is always right. The Bible says that we must let the Jesus the Son of God rule our lives. We must also put our future hope in the Son of God. If we do this, God will give us a life that never ends. God will save us.
The death of your body will happen. However, you do not need to fear that kind of death. Why do you not need to fear? You do not need to fear because God is able to give you a life that never ends. And, God has promised to give you a life that never ends.
Are you ready to take that gift at this time? If you are ready, join me as we talk to Jesus now ...
Dear God, I know that my bad choices will keep me from a life with you that never ends. I believe that you send Jesus to give us a life that never ends. Please give me your forgiveness. Please do not punish me for what I have done. Please teach me how to act in a way that pleases God. I give my will to you. I ask that you take control of my life. Thank you.
Now, if you believe what you have said, you will come back to life after your body dies; and you now have a life that will never end.
