Motorcycle season has again arrived and I am excited to be riding again. I have always preferred using my bike for my primary mode of transportation. For a productive and safe season, certain preparations must be made, such as ensuring tires are good and properly inflated, motor is tuned and running properly with clean oil and plenty of gas. Also, wearing good protective gear is recommended. Good preparations always ensure the best possible results.
Good preparations are important in all aspects of life. We do what is necessary to maintain good health, care for our families and protect our investments. But how much preparation is made regarding eternity? One thing is certain, one day we will all pass through the portal called death. Hebrews 9:27,28 says "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement: so Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation."
John 3:16 says "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
In Romans 1:16, the apostle Paul writes "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes..."
God has made all the preparations for eternity; salvation or judgement.
1 John 5:13 says "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may believe on the name of the Son of God."
John 3:36 says "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."
Salvation or judgement! What is your choice?
Praying that all would come to Christ,
