Have you ever made a bad decision and then beat yourself up about it for days or even years? As human beings, we've all made mistakes ... some more costly than others. But if we know Jesus Christ, God can make something good come out of even our worst mistakes. When we come to Him, God will forgive us and help us move forward in the right direction.
Did you know that there is one decision in this life that is absolutely final, irreversible and permanent? There is one decision that even God cannot change or correct for you. That decision is to reject Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life. Once you die, your eternal destination is decided and whatever you chose, it will have been your own doing.
Heaven is not our default destination. All of us have sinned and our sin separates us from having a relationship with our Creator. If you die without Christ, your soul lives on forever in a place called hell. This sounds harsh but Jesus told us in Matthew 25:46 (KJV) that there were only two eternal destinations ... heaven and hell. Jesus said, "And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal." He made it very clear.
Thankfully, God showed His great love for us by sending Jesus Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. He gave each of us a free will to choose Jesus or to reject Him. We cannot make this choice after we die. Jesus shed His blood on the cross, died for our sins, was buried and rose from the dead. Placing our trust in Him while we are alive here on earth is the ONLY way to escape hell and receive eternal life.
