This life is full of hellos and goodbyes. From families welcoming a newborn baby into the world, to families saying goodbye to a loved one who is moving, who is going to war, who is passing on. What we do with our lives between birth and death is critical.
From the time we are born, we are exposed to sin. The world bombards us daily with desire, sensualities, and instant gratification. At some point we are introduced to Christ. What we do with Him is the most important decision we will make. Will we accept Him and become a Christian, or will we deny Him and be eternally separated from God and eternally lost? When we get to heaven, Jesus is either going to say, "Hello, welcome to the family," or "Goodbye, I never knew you."
Everyday there are people who die and are going to hell because they would not accept God's free gift of salvation. Instead, they thought they knew best for their lives. There are those are truly evil people and will never believe in Jesus, no matter what you do. There are many more that say, "Yes, I will do it tomorrow."
We are never promised tomorrow, but we are promised eternity if we will only accept Jesus Christ.
