“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
No doubt about it: this life can be quite busy–particularly, the life of most moderns.
There are finances to attend to.
If a parent, there are children who beg for attention.
And there are 101 different small, nagging details of ordinary life which SCREAM for attention–EVERY DAY.
Many feel that just getting through their day and handling all of the MANY demands of that day is enough to keep the most industrious busy.
Who has time to devote to questions of their afterlife?
IN FACT, MOST moderns do not concern themselves overly much about their eternal destination UNTIL they are standing on the edge of eternity.
It has been said that “Death concentrates the mind wonderfully.“
THEN, that which is attendant to death–particularly one’s eternal destination–becomes VERY important to a person.
When one is staring DIRECTLY into eternity, then questions of eternity become VERY important to them.
When one is staring into eternity, the topic of where one will spend his forever future suddenly becomes the most important subject he can think of.
The world–and Satan–has an interest in keeping moderns busy–RIGHT UP until the moment they pass from this life to the next.
IF the reader feels he is too busy to think about his eternal destination, then perhaps he should think on the subject a little more closely than he has in the past.
The edge of eternity is not very a very hospitable place to kick back, relax and think about one’s future.
Which is one GOOD reason not to wait until one is at that juncture to contemplate his eternity.
DOES the reader ever wonder where he will spend eternity?
OR, is the reader ‘too busy’ for such speculation?
It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
