ARE YOU READY?
I thank God that this leaflet which is written and meant for you can reach you eventually. There is an important question I want to ask you, the question is: if you suddenly drop dead now and you close your eyes in death, where are you going? Are you sure of eternal destiny? The Bile says in Romans 14:12, “So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God”. Everyone who has ever lived, those who are alive now (including you and me) and all those who will ever live shall give account of his or her life unto God. The Bible didn’t say you will give account to your wife/husband, your boss in the office, your community leader, your governor or your president, but to God- your maker. What account of your life will you give to HIM? Will you tell Him “God thank you for creating me, I tried my best, I was a womanizer, a husband snatcher, a liar or a fornicator”? Or will you tell Him: “I built five houses; I had ten cars or gave scholarship to indigent students? Maybe your own response will be: “I went to church, I sang in the choir, I prophesied,” etc.
The Bible says in Proverbs 14:12, ‘There is a way that appears good unto a man but the end is perdition”. Are you on that way that leads to destruction or the one that leads to life? Maybe you are sincere in what you are doing. If you are doing the wrong thing, then you are being sincerely wrong.
What are men making you to do in the name of God or religion? Maybe they have prescribed some baths by the river side. Maybe it is a garment, some candles or some rituals they have recommended to you. They may have sold some rings or hand beads to you asking you to put them on twenty four hours of the day, you may on their insistence be considering making incisions on your body. All these can only compound your problems. Psalms 16:4 and Isaiah 57:21 explain it all.
Perhaps you are one of those people who claim that you are not a sinner or you say it is not possible to live without sinning. I pray that it will not be late for you before you know the truth. God says in His word: All have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that if we say we have not sinned, we deceive ourselves and there is no truth in us. (Rm. 3:23 and Jn 1:8). Note that the judgement of God is not according to your standard but God’s and He is a righteous judge – you can’t bribe Him. His judgement is also final, no appeal. This is why you must get right with Him today, as a matter of urgency.
Romans 8:1-2 says “There is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit. For the law of sin and death.”
What the Bible is saying here is that the power and ability to live above sin is not in you as a man. That is why all your resolutions and struggles to overcome sin have been failing. Thank God Jesus can help you to overcome. In Him (Jesus) is a law called “the law of the spirit of life”. This law can empower you and make you free from the law of sin and death.
Everyman, and you in particular, needs the law in his life. You can have it just by asking. Romans 10:13 says: “whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. What type of calling brings this salvation? It is the call for mercy, the call from the one who knows he is a hopeless sinner who cannot save himself (Ps 51:17, II Cor. 7:10). Jesus is waiting to hear from you. Infact He is knocking the door of your heart now. (Rev. 3:20). Open unto Him and you will never regret it.
I ask again, Are you ready? Are you sure of your eternal destiny?
