Think a minute…A cemetery in Indiana, America has a gravestone with these words on it: “Stop stranger, when you pass me by. As you are now, so once was I. As I am now, so you will be. So prepare to die, and follow me!” A person walking by added these words underneath: “To follow you I’m not content, until I know which way you went!”
Do you sometimes wonder where your family and friends who’ve died are now? Do they want you to come where they are? Don’t you wish they could talk to you? Where are all those people now who suddenly died in the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001?
Jesus Christ made it very clear that we already know where we’re going after we die, since it’s only now that we can choose where we’ll live after we die. He warns us that it will be too late after we die to choose or change our mind. Jesus said there are only two choices: to completely believe Him and live His way everyday, or, to keep living our own way. Heaven or hell.
Jesus said there’s no in-between place for nice, good people who won’t ask for His gift of forgiveness and live for Him every day. None of us is perfect. We’ve all done some things wrong that we need Jesus to forgive us for and start changing in our character and way of living.
So we don’t need to talk to the dead to find out about life after death. Jesus Christ has already told us the truth and everything we need to know to go where we want to live after we die—together with Him and His true family in heaven. So for your own peace of mind and safety, won’t you ask Jesus to forgive you for living your own way before it’s too late?
Then ask Him to take full charge of your heart and help you start living His way every day, for the rest of your life. Just Think a Minute…
