Make the Right Choice

It is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment. - (Hebrews 9:27)

What if your life ended today? What kind of legacy would you leave? What would you be remembered for? It isn’t too late to change.

I read an article about an opera singer who didn’t realize how prophetic his words actually were. Richard Versailles was a tenor with the Metropolitan Opera, and during a performance, he climbed a ladder as he sang the words “too bad you can only live so long.” Suddenly he froze and fell to the ground. The production was stopped immediately, and he was rushed to the hospital. Soon after his arrival, he was declared dead. He didn’t realize those would be his last.

For every one of us, there will be those last words, that last breath. It doesn’t matter whether you are someone famous or someone unknown. Everyone will have that final breath. What if it were yours today? Where would you spend eternity?

The Bible says, “It is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27 NKJV). There are no second chances after death. But there are thousands, maybe even millions, before. Once you die, that’s it. There is no opportunity to try to work it out. It will be too late then. You determine, before you die, where you will spend eternity. That is when you decide.

Today you are living one of two ways. You are either living the right way or the wrong way. You are either on the narrow road that leads to life or on the broad way that leads to destruction. You are either living the happy Christian life, the joyful life, the life with purpose and meaning, or you are living the miserable, empty life separated from God. The ultimate destination is Heaven or Hell. You decide where you will go.
