Where Will You Spend Eternity?

‘“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going.’ ‘No, we don’t know, Lord,’ Thomas said. ‘We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?’ Jesus told him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.’”
John 14:1-7

It was a beautiful sunny day in San Diego, California. People were going to the ocean in droves as thirty-five of us made our way to a little chapel near the beach. I was called to officiate a funeral for Judy. She loved California. The flowers, sun, beaches and mountains all brought Judy much joy. But the real passion of her heart was her relationship with Jesus Christ. We started with a praise song and then I was able to share from today’s passage. We drew much comfort from knowing that the words that Jesus said were absolutely true. We were able to stop our hearts from being troubled. We knew that Jesus had gone ahead and prepared a place for Judy and before she departed, she knew it too. Judy came to a place where she understood what Jesus meant when He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” Today, you can too. If you are not sure what will happen when you die, if you are not sure that your eternal home will be with Jesus in Heaven for all eternity, then settle it today. Receive Christ as your Lord and Savior. Receive His death on the cross as the payment for your sins and become a new person in Him. Your heart doesn’t have to be troubled over your eternal destiny. He has prepared a place for you.

Dear Jesus, You said not to let my heart be troubled, but instead to believe in You. You said that You have gone ahead and have prepared a place for me. You said that You are the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through You. I come today, confessing that my attitudes and behavior have separated me from You. I ask Your forgiveness. Thank you that You died on the cross for my wrong doing and I now receive Your gift of eternal life. Be the ruler of my life. In Jesus’ name.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
