生命是短暫的 - 愛硬 & 做好準備
生命是短暫的，我們不知道什麼時候我們這裡的時間將達到. In light of eternity, 我們在這裡的逗留，但閃爍的最短. What will become of you when your body ceases to function and your consciousness opens its eyes on forever? Most people believe that being a good person or doing more good than bad things, 尋找啟示, 或支付有關的傳統將把他們的靈魂以安慰在來世. Jesus said all of those things are good, 但還不夠好.
看, 而上帝是愛, 他也是聖 - 這意味著關於他的一切, 想法, 言行, 從正義的動機做. Only if you meet that measure of perfection would you even be able to exist in His presence, 因為他是完美的光線，並將其驅逐所有的黑暗. So all it takes to be unable to be in His presence is one microscopic speck of imperfection. "That's impossible", 你說! You are right about that. So in His Love, He sent Jesus to live the perfect life we're incapable of living. By doing so, Jesus was able to take our place in God's judgement. Jesus stood in our place and took our punishment. Now God is offering us a "禮品卡" - 耶穌. His hand is extended, 該卡在他的手指.
我們所要做的就是接受禮品卡. If we don't take that gift card, 那麼當我們的身體死, our soul cannot be in God's presence - it doesn't have the gift card to pay. It is really that simple. Taking the gift card means our soul is reborn to be molded by God into the character of Jesus - 誰愛我們，以至於他志願參加我們的地方同樣的耶穌. God wants us to Love Hard. Jesus said to love God with all of our being, 愛鄰如己, 並深愛的所有其他基督徒.
雖然這個帖子開始與一個悲傷的故事, 好消息是，米歇爾已經採取了禮品卡很多年前. When her life ended quite unexpectedly last week, 她提出的禮品卡，並進入聖潔的神的存在永遠. What about you? Will you make the choice to take Jesus' offer? It is simple and will change your life and afterlife. How do you do that? Check out these links:
