In our fast pace world reading a book is not as popular it seems. We want fast reads, fast food and fast cars. Blog writing hits the need for short reads. Not too many people say “I read the end of the blog first!” Life, however, is more like reading a book. Would you want to read the end of your life book on earth if it were possible?
How many times have you turned to the back of the book to find out how it ends? There are books that draw you in the story and characters that become like our close friends. Sometimes we even hate to read the last page. Other books have endings that are abrupt and troubling.
Life is full of beginnings and endings. We talk about the “end of life.” In a sense our life will end but only physically. The “who” we are Spirit and soul will live on. Where and how we will live depends on our choice.
God said (Deut. 30:19 )
“ I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants,”
The Creator, Almighty and gracious GOD sent His Son Jesus Christ Who lay down His life to give us a choice. We have the privilege to choose Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior. When we choose Him, we are choosing LIFE and our last step in this life we leave our body and step over into the everlasting life that has been being prepared for us.
” but just as it is written, “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1 Cor. 2:9 NASB
and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” Rev. 22;4 NASB
God gives free will to choose life or death or to “not choose” which is a choice for death, ultimately. We can live our lives like there is no such thing as Heaven and Hell or God.Our false beliefs doesn’t change the TRUTH. GOD is real and alive. Heaven and Hell are real. We will have rewards or consequences when we die, depending on our choice now. Unfortunately, many choose death, rejecting the free gift of salvation. Death is life separated from God.
Some people say they will not choose either. Even a non choice is a choice and it is wrong. It is where there is eternal punishment and separation from God.
49 So it will be at the end of the age; the angels will come forth and take out the wicked from among the righteous, 50 and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matt. 39:49-50
Life for me is seemingly unending physical challenges and pain. I choose to hold on to a Prevailing Hope. I know about an Unending Life where Life will prevail with peace, love, and joy. Life is good because I choose to live it with Hope and the Joy of knowing God has a plan for my future and it is GOOD.
I HOPE you make the choice for unending, PREVAILING LIFE through Jesus Christ. It is the UnEnding …as it is a Life forever –without end, the way God intended it to be from the very beginning.
LIFE PREVAILS …
