Why Should I Worry?

feb23Infeb23a my previous posts, I’ve written about truth’s universality and how it relates to the Bible. To many people, it’s all academic. They feel that they’ll deal with the matter of their eternal destination when they’re old and grey.

So, what’s stopping people from surrendering their lives to the rulership of Jesus now? Pride is the main culprit. Human beings naturally want to be the masters of their destiny. Becoming a follower of Christ seems irksome because thfeb23bey can’t do whatever they want.

What people don’t realize is that we’re in a war with only two sides. God and all those faithful to his wise leadership are on one side while Satan and his rebels are on the other. Simplistic as it might seem to some, you’re either on God’s or the Devil’s side. There’s no middle ground.

You can disbelieve this dichotomy but it’s true. Just look at all the other belief systems and you’ll see that they’re an attempt to reject the Lord in favour of gods which humans can handle and use.

GAMEOVERA time will come when God will withdraw our privilege to choose him or to go our own way. As the Apostle Paul wrote about Christ’s return in 2 Thessalonians 1:8 (KJV), “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:”

So, what’s your decision? Have you surrendered your life to Christ or are you headed toward an agonizing eternity in hell? This is a serious matter, not something to laugh about.

Next , I’ll write about how to determine if you’re really saved or not. This too is a crucial question.
