Do you ever wonder about life after death? Do you believe in life after death? Sometimes I find myself wondering why really good people, even Christian people die at an early age. I am a Christian. I know God has a plan for me and my life, but sometimes I wonder why this person or that person is gone. Their families are hurting and trying to comfort them with words sometimes seems insincere, because there really are no words.
When my daughter was in elementary school, she had a friend who was born with
a hole in her heart. She had gone through a few surgery’s in her young life. When she was in the fourth grade she was scheduled for another surgery. She never woke from that surgery. A few weeks passed and I remember running into her Mother at the store. I walked up to her but no words came out. In my mind I was thinking I could not imagine going through what she just went through. Anything I would have said seemed stupid. She looked at me and I guess she could tell I was struggling to say something. She looked at me and said Kathy it is okay. She is with Jesus and it is okay.
I believe God lets us go through difficult times because that is when we need him the most. The bible says when you go through trials and tribulations not if you go through trials and tribulations “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4
My question to you is “Do you believe in Jesus Christ?” Do you believe he came into this world to save us? After we have gone through life and reach that point where we die and you are the person that believes that there is nothing else, there is no hope, then I ask you, what was the point?
I believe in Jesus Christ. I am saved by his Grace. I believe the point is he loves me and has prepared a beautiful place for me where I will spend the rest of my days worshipping him and singing his praises. If you are reading this and thinking to yourself, yeah right! Whatever! Then lets say for argument sake you are right, there is no hope. There is no life after death. There is no heaven or hell. Then I guess you have nothing to worry about, right? But what if you are wrong and I am right! Then you have everything to worry about. If I am right and you are not saved and you die tomorrow that would mean you would spend eternity in hell. It does not have to be that way. You make the choice today before it is to late. Ask Jesus to save you. Yes it is that easy.
