Ready to find your life?
August 11, 2009
For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.
Popular surveys in America tell us that most people believe in heaven and hell. Not surprisingly, a great many people believe that they are going to heaven. And not many believe they’ll go to hell!
But let me tell you something that may surprise you. Jesus said more people are headed to hell than to heaven.
Now you might ask, where did Jesus say that?
It was in his Sermon on the Mount when Jesus said, “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many” (Matthew 7:13).
What Jesus is saying here is exactly the opposite of what most people think. And it means that a high percentage of people who think they are going to heaven are tragically mistaken.
Please don’t be one of those people who believes in heaven, but lives like there’s no God. Because the truth is, when you and I die, we will have to give God an account of our lives. And heaven or hell will be hanging in the balance!
So today, I urge you to do business with your soul. Be reconciled to God and live for Jesus Christ!
DON’T BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO BELIEVES IN HEAVEN,
BUT LIVES LIKE THERE’S NO GOD.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
