LIFE: DON’T LEAVE EARTH WITHOUT IT!
Cynthia is the consummate packer. Whenever we leave on a trip she methodically and thoughtfully lays out each days “outfit” and puts a small piece of paper with the days date on it. She never over packs. (I think it has something to do with her Swiss-German genes.) I on the other hand am not a packer but a bundler. I grab a bundle of shirts, pants and socks and shoes and cram them in the biggest suitcase I can find. Therefore, I alway over pack and most of the time forget something. But the good news is most of the stuff I forget can be bought where we are going. Most of the stuff…. But that is another story!
Sooner or later, all of us will go on the ultimate trip from here to eternity. There is only one thing you will ever need: LIFE. And it is the last thing you will ever need. I am not talking about the life Mom and Dad gave you, but ETERNAL LIFE that Christ offers to you. It is not something you are born with, but as Jesus said it is something you are reborn with! If you wish to live with God in Heaven for all time you must have ETERNAL LIFE.
It may come as a surprise to you, but it is not enough to have your sins forgiven. Jesus has already forgiven the sins of the world, John 1:29; 1 John 2:2.Even those who will spend eternity in Hell, sins are forgiven. You must accept His Gift of Eternal Life, John 11:25-26.
