What if....how many times have we said those words in our lifetime? What if I'd made a different decision? What if I'd chosen a different path or career? What if I'd held my tongue instead of putting my mouth in gear never being able to retract those hurtful words? Regrets, that's what all the "what ifs" in life are all about. But we continue, in these human carnal bodies until Jesus returns, to forge ahead into the next "what if" situation.
Being in my sixties I believe I see the world through wiser eyes than when I was younger. I love the Lord Jesus with all my heart and I believe with everything in me He's coming back for those who believe on His Name. I also believe life on this earth is temporary and where we go after this life....well, it's for all eternity. It's up to each individual, through the awesome gift of free will, to make that determination for him or herself. But here's the thing; if you think it's all fantasy, that Christians have been drinking out of a fountain filled with red kool-aide, the miracles of Jesus were magic and there was no such occurrence of a resurrection; WHAT IF you're wrong? Are you willing to spend an eternity in a burning hell where there is no escape? No firetrucks, no EMS, no miraculous deliverance out of the pain and agony because you made up your mind before your last breath was taken. WHAT IF?
For me, I'm comfortable with my belief in a Savior who was born of a virgin, lived on this earth, died a cruel death in order to be the perfect sacrificial Lamb so that once and for all the blood of the perfect and innocent was shed for the remission of sins. My question is to those who don't believe in Jesus....what is going to happen to your soul? You know, the part of you made in God's image? What happens when your eyes close in death? Think it's not serious enough to consider? Or perhaps its scare tactics created by Christians? WHAT IF Christians are right? Are you willing to chance for eternity the lives and souls of your children on your lack of belief in a God who loves you and sent His Son to die for you? WHAT IF?
