READ: Romans 10:9-11 "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved."
Contrary to some people's belief - not everyone goes to heaven. Some people live their whole lives and never understand this. They think that if someone was a 'good person' that heaven is their destiny. This is just not TRUTH according to the Word of God. We cannot live however we please (our own way) and think that heaven will be our home. Heaven is a real place and it's for real people, but it is for His (God's) children. Only those who confess that Jesus IS Lord will be saved and enter in.
For those who refuse to do this, hell is their eternity. Hell is a very real place. The Bible speaks of it (hell) referring to it as a blazing furnace, with weeping and gnashing of teeth, and forever being separated from the presence of God.
If you have confessed Jesus as Lord of your life, thank him today for his SAVING GRACE!
Spend time praying for those that you know that haven't accepted Jesus as their Savior. Share this devotional with them, pray for them, and ask God to use you today to share Christ Jesus with someone.
Thank you Jesus for your Amazing Grace! Thank you for lifting me from the mire and muck of my sins and setting me free. Thank you that I will get to spend my eternity with you in heaven. Help me to share YOU with someone today. Put someone in my path that I can tell about you and what you have done for me. Amen.
