Dearly Beloved,
“He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God - children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God” (John 1:11-13 NIV).
Recently there was an incident in my family that is thought-provoking. My wife was preparing the breakfast and gave the children the opportunity of choosing the kind of stew they preferred for the meal. Each of them made his/her choice, and was served with the chosen stew. Then, my nine-year-old son said regretfully, “Oh, I would have chosen egg stew, but it is too late now.” He discontentedly had his breakfast that day.
Each of us also has a choice to make now about where and how to spend our eternity. The choice has to be made before it is too late. We can choose to be with God and His holy angels in heaven or with Satan and his cohorts in hell. The only way to be with God is to believe in His Son, Jesus Christ, because He is “the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father [God] except through [Him]” (John 14:6 NIV), and “Whoever believes in [Jesus Christ] is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son” (John 3:18 NIV).
There is no other way to heaven than this Way. Making any other choice will lead to regret and eternal condemnation. Before it is too late, make the right choice. Choose the Way of Jesus. Prophet Micah warned his people: “Will the LORD be pleased if I bring him thousands of sheep or endless streams of olive oil? Shall I offer him my first-born child to pay for my sins? No, the LORD has told us what is good. What he requires of us is this: to do what is just, to show constant love, and to live in humble fellowship with our God” (Micah 6:7-8 TEV). Living in fellowship with Him and having His life is believing in His Son, Jesus Christ (John 1:11-12; 1 John 3:23; 5:12).
Before it is too late, make the right choice now! “I tell you, now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2 NIV).
In His service,
Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor).
