Prime choice

Did you ever stop to consider that your life is filled with choices?  Everything that happens in your life is a result of a choice you have made, with the exception of being born (someone else's choice), paying taxes (the government's choice) or dying (God's choice, unless it's suicide - then it's your choice).

Every day starts with a choice - should I get out of bed when the alarm rings or call in sick to work?  Or should I hit the buzzer and sleep five more minutes?  You then decide what to have for breakfast, what to wear to work, etc.  Even if you're doing nothing, you have made a choice - you could be doing something.

Some choices are easy. "Should I have eggs or cereal for breakfast?" "Should I buy this car or that one?" Some choices are hard.  "Who should I marry?"  "Should I have children?" "Should I take my loved one off of life support?"

There is one choice that is the most important of all - where you will spend eternity.  Where will you go when you die?  There are two choices here - you can go to Heaven when you die, or you can go to Hell.  There is no purgatory or in-between.

So if you have decided that you want to go to Heaven when you die, there's only one way to get there - through belief in Jesus Christ as your Savior.  You have to repent of your sins and ask Jesus into your heart and let Him rule over your life. Jesus Himself said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me."

If you don't make a decision about where you want to spend your eternity, you have made a choice - you will go to Hell. If you have not yet made the choice to repent of your sins and ask Jesus to live in your heart, You can go here for details on how to do that.  I pray that you do so soon and not put it off.  As reflected in some of my other posts on this blog, you never know when your time on Earth will be up.  You will then wish for all eternity that you had made the right choice.

That's all for now!  Thanks for reading!
