Everyday 150’000 people die.
This means that everyday, 150’000 people jump from the plane of life, into eternity. Many of those who jumped yesterday, never gave a thought about afterlife, but anyway; they jumped. Maybe they didn’t expect to jump at an early age or in good health, but they jumped. Maybe their success or plans took their attention and never considered the jump to come. The family members and loved ones of those who will jump today, might not be prepared to receive the news. In the last few seconds, since you started reading this blog, many people have already jumped.
The fact is that we all belong to the statistic: out of a 100 people, 100 die.
If we jump from a plane without a parachute, the Law of Gravity will make sure that we are destroyed. In the same way, if we jump into eternity without « a parachute », the Law of God will turn us into pieces.
Why? because he has given us 10 Commandments to follow and we haven’t. We will be guilty in the day of judgement:
1.- Have you loved God with all of your heart? Is He the priority in your life?
2.- Have you created a god that you feel comfortable with? Do you have something or someone that rules your life such as money, friends, relationships or work?
3.- Have you always used the name of God with respect?
4.- Have you always kept a day for God?
5.- Have you always respected your mother and father?
6.- Have you ever murdered? Did you know that Jesus equates hatred with murder? So, have you ever hated someone?
7.- Have you committed adultery? Meaning to have sexual relationships with someone outside of marriage or with someone else besides your spouse? Did you know that Jesus said that if you look with lust, you have already committed adultery in your heart? So, have you ever looked at someone with lust?
8.- Have you ever stolen anything? Regardless its size or value.
9.- Have you ever told a lie?
10.- Have you ever desired to have somebody else’s profession, wife, house, car, job, salary, looks? This is to covet.
It is clear now that the Law of God will destroy you if you jump from the plane of life into eternity!!
But God has provided « a parachute » to save you : Jesus Christ. God’s son lived a sinless life (kept all the Commandments) and died in the cross as the punishment that we all deserved. This is the great exchange: He took our sins/punishment and gave us his righteousness!
What you have to do is to REPENT from your sins; from every deed and thought you had against God and His Law. Then, TRUST in Jesus; put your FAITH in Him, as the only way to survive the jump to come. You broke God’s Law but Jesus paid your fine: you can be JUSTIFIED before God but you have to embrace the free gift of Jesus’ sacrifice on your behalf.
Everyday 150’000 people die… don’t wait another minute!
