_The Crossroads of Forever

Source: Art Sadlier, Friday August 16th 2019

My unsaved friend, God loves you and wants to bless you. He wants to make you His child. He wants to take you to live with Him in heaven forever. He wants to make you the object of His infinite, divine love. The Bible says,”…in His presence is fullness of joy and at His right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

But God has a problem with you! Your sins have separated you from God, both now and forever. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).  “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear” (Isaiah 59:2).

Unless you invite Christ to cleanse you from your sin you will spend eternity in torments in the lake of fire forever. “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire” (Revelation 20:14). This is a hard message, but we share it because we care about you.

The good news is that God in Christ came into this world. He lived a perfect sinless life that qualified Him to die a substitutionary, saving death for you on the cross.  He shed His blood, dying in your place. “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit” (1Peter 3:18).

If you turn to God in repentance and faith, He will accept Christ’s sacrifice for your sin and give you the righteousness of Christ and eternal life. “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” (John 3:36).

Unsaved friend, you are standing at the crossroads of forever. You will be forever in the lake of fire, or forever the object of God’s blessing. Do not go to the place that burns with fire and brimstone and to be there forever and ever, having no hope of ever escaping.

Understand that the love, mercy and helping grace of God is infinite, as high as the heavens. The hatred of God for sin is also limitless, as deep as the bottomless pit. God has no choice but to judge sin. If God was to allow one sinner into heaven, heaven would be destroyed in the same way sinful Adam destroyed the present world. Sin always destroys and God must judge it and put it away from His presence forever.

Choose your forever! Fall on your knees and ask God to save you.
