Our topical discussion is based on a personal decision that each individual must make when deciding whether to accept God’s free gift of salvation that gives us the inheritance of eternal life or reject God’s gift of salvation and spend eternally separated form Him.
In making our choices we must remember that there is a spiritual warfare that is raging between God and Satan and our choice will determine where we will spend eternity as well as how we live our earthly lives here on earth. If we choose to become servants in God’s army then there are many blessings as our reward. Some of the rewards are: (a) we have accepted Jesus Christ’s atoning death at Calvary and He have become our Lord and Saviour, (b) we become heirs to the kingdom of God, (c) we have the indwelling Holy Spirit protecting us from all danger while leading, guiding, teaching, and sealing us in the family of God, and (d) we have been freed from the bondage of sin and the stigma of death that it carries.
Consider this, we work thirty years for a company, then retire with a pension to relax and enjoy life’s golden years-- spend a lifetime in Christ we get to enjoy God’s goodness in His presence in our after life (golden years).
Finally, in making our choice consider the consequences of our decisions, which is where do I want to spend eternity after my physical life has ended. Therefore, the question remains, which do you, choose?
