Real Life

 

What is the “real and eternal life” that Jesus spoke of in John 10:10? If I were to ask,"Is your life real and are you really living," how would you answer? One of my Dad’s favorite truths of life is, “If you are not prepared to die, then neither are you prepared to live.”


The Bible tells us we are all going to live eternally, and that our earthly body will die, but our spirit and soul, the part that is the real us, will never die. The question is, where will we live?


The greatest decision you will ever make on planet earth is to answer the question of where you will live for eternity. All other decisions, no matter how great their earthly impact, are secondary. The God who created us, out of His great love for you and me, even tells us how to answer the question, to make sure we don’t miss it. In Deuteronomy 30:19 He said, "I’m calling for heaven and earth to give witness against you this very day. I’m offering you the choice of life or death. You can choose either blessings or curses. But I want you to choose life. Then you and your children will live."


The Bible also tells us, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9 NIV


It is with this simple, childlike faith and confession that we establish forever the answer as to our eternal place of residence....... “if you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart”. In this simple act of obedience and faith to God is repentance of sin, and right standing with Him. The next step is to find a Bible believing Word church, to be baptized in water and with the Holy Spirit, and to begin living a life of faith and service to God, and in fellowship with other Believers. The promise of more and better life than you ever dreamed of will surely follow.


May THE BLESSING of God overtake you all the days of your life. If you wish to let us know of your decision, send us an e-mail so that we can rejoice with you.
