As I write, our Facebook feeds tell us one is dead and one injured; our major Interstate (North and South for miles) is closed; HazMat has relieved us with news: no hazard substance to fear.
Of this I am certain this dear man did not step up into his vehicle this morning expecting to die today. Earlier this morning, JT and I attended the funeral of a sweet friend’s mother.
People. Death. Is. Certain.
The testimony given at the service this morning assured me my friend’s mother safely arrived in Heaven on Sunday. The Minister explained well the way of Salvation. Jesus paid it all. Paid for all the sins of mankind. We could say He wrote a blank check for each of us. There’s no catch but there is a condition. We must individually accept the check, endorse it, and take it to the Bank.
We accept the check by faith, knowing we NEED The Savior, that we cannot pay our own sin debt. By faith we endorse that check with our mouths confessing our faith in the LORD JESUS CHRIST not just as the Savior of the world but MY Savior; and we take that check to the bank when we say Thank You LORD JESUS for saving me.
Death is certain.
Individually we choose.
Romans 10: 9 because if you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord [recognizing His power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For with the heart a person believes [in Christ as Savior] resulting in his justification [that is, being made righteous—being freed of the guilt of sin and made acceptable to God]; and with the mouth he acknowledges and confesses [his faith openly], resulting in and confirming [his] salvation.
