Today, will be the last time I will ever be in the home I grew up in. Dad passed away earlier this year, and on Monday the house will be transferred to its new owner. I will walk around remembering life within those walls. I will stare at my old bedroom. Life is about seasons, so though there are good feelings tied to that address, I don’t regret where I live now.
One of these days will be my last one on earth. I will be ready to leave it, and go to my new home in heaven, where I am confident I will spend eternity, because I accepted Jesus into my life and do my best to live for him. I will be like the Apostle Paul. “[Yes] we have confident and hopeful courage and are pleased rather to be away from home out of the body and be at home with the Lord.” (2Co 5:8 AMP)
Your current address doesn’t matter, but your future one does. So I have to ask you; Where will you spend eternity? Will you be at home with the Lord, or in a totally dark pit falling forever, because hell is bottomless? Some ask, “How can a loving God send people to hell?” He doesn’t send people to hell, they send themselves. It’s your choice.
Paul gave the greatest bottom line:
“Alive, I’m Christ’s messenger; dead, I’m his bounty. Life versus even more life! I can’t lose.” (Phi 1:21 MSG)
