Give thought to eternal life
During the 1970s a passenger airliner, hijacked by a terrorist group, was forced to fly to a predetermined destination.
Upon landing an ultimatum was given that if the group’s demands were not met a passenger would be shot every half hour and thrown from the plane.
Tragically before the siege ended several people had been murdered.
As individuals faced imminent death, there was only one thing that really mattered.
It was of no consequence whether they were young or old, male or female, rich or poor, black or white.
No earthly characteristics were of any merit once the trigger was squeezed.
Only one thing was of importance; had preparation been made for what comes after death.
Had thought been given to the eternal dimension of life?
The Bible teaches that we stand condemned already if we don’t believe in Jesus.
The decision we must face is are we prepared for the consequences and penalty for our sins, or have we accepted the ransom that Jesus has already paid on our behalf?
