4) The giant entertainment industry keeps minds so absorbed that
people avoid serious thoughts about eternity?
These things are sadly true but the responsibility to
receive Christ as Savior rests forever with each soul. Even though all these
things are stacked against it, God has given a clear and plentiful witness
that Jesus Christ is the Savior men, women and children need. From glory, he
came to be born as a man on the earth. During his life, he clearly fulfilled
distinct, remarkable, and innumerable Old Testament prophecies. His
teachings were with words of matchless love, grace, and power. God confirmed
the message of the Lord Jesus through the miracles he performed. Of all men
who ever lived, his words alone perfectly matched his deeds and life. After
three and a half years of ministering to the needs of those around him, he
let himself be taken, and nailed to the cross. His sacrifice is the greatest
act of love the world will ever know. He arose from the grave a victor over
its dark domain. He is now seated at Gods right hand in heaven. He will be
coming back, but before he does, during the time of his absence, he is
calling souls from this sinful world to believe on him and receive the gift
of eternal life.
Man nailed the Lord Jesus Christ to a cross of shame.
They meant to get rid of him. But God exalted him to the highest place in
heaven. His name is now far higher than any other. He is the One that
sinners must look to if they ever hope to be saved and make it into heaven.
Look unto me, and be ye saved all the ends of the earth: for I am God and
there is none other. (Is. 45.22) And he is the one who brings life to the
world, In him was life; and the life was the light of men. (Jn. 1.4) And
I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish neither shall any
man pluck them out of my hand. (Jn. 10 .28) Sinners are completely without
any excuse if they refuse to come to him. The word responsible means able
to respond. Every member of the human race is able to respond to his love.
If they choose to never do so, they alone will bear the blame and
consequence of their decision forever.
All of heaven will be full of praise along the strains of
Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power be unto him who sits on the
throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. (Rev. 5.13) However, there
will not be any songs of praise in hell. Instead of praise, there will be
gnashing of teeth in anger. Therefore, in this life, before it is forever
too late, come to the One who loves you and gave his life to save you.
Verily, Verily I say unto you, he that believeth on me hath everlasting
