The Price Of A Decision
What is the price of a decision? I won’t address those that mock the things of God, deny Him, or completely ignore His existence. Some of these people have no fear of Almighty God and have such arrogance toward Him. We all must be informed of what we will face one day. This is a loving message, because it’s a message of warning. One day you will stand before the one and only, holy, awesome, eternal God in heaven with all His infinite power and His millions of mighty warrior angels at His side. On that great judgment day, God will reveal your every thought, action, and motive. Everything you have ever done will be shown to all and nothing will be hidden. You will be found guilty of your sins and you will have no excuse. There is a payment required for those sins. Did you trust in Jesus to pay for them?
You might not believe this now, but it says in Romans 14:11, “As I live sayeth the Lord, every knee shall bow to me and every tongue shall confess to God, so then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” Your knee will bow. You will then be drug off into an eternal hell by hideous, wicked demons and thrown into a furnace of fire for all eternity. It won’t be God’s fault. He warned you over and over throughout your entire life by sending people to tell you the way to heaven. In addition, we have the Bible, we have churches, we have the internet, TV, and radio proclaiming Jesus is Lord and Savior. He even gives dreams and visions to man to keep back his soul from the pit. As it says in Job 33, “but you ignored it all.” You won’t be able to accuse God of being unloving or unfair.
He sent His Son to die on a cruel and horrific cross in your place for your sins. Jesus said He was the only way to heaven in John 14:6, but you denied Him, and now He will deny you. In Matthew 25:41, it states that Jesus will say this to you on that day, “Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.” He has no pleasure in saying those words, but because He loves you, He gave you a free will to choose. God is not just a God of love. He is also a God of justice and judgment. If you don’t believe in Jesus, 1 Corinthians 12:2 says, “You have been carried away unto these dumb idols.”
An idol is not just a religious statue of some phony god, but anything that places itself above God, such as money, power, fame, or even yourself. One preacher said, “Hell is full of stupid people,” and you know that’s true. Heaven is a free gift, to live in a perfect place forever, and you turned it down. That is indeed foolish. Proverbs 27:12 says, “The prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.” You have an opportunity now to ask God for forgiveness of your sins, believe Jesus died in your place and rose from the dead, and receive Him as your Lord and Savior. Hell is far worse than you can imagine and it’s eternal. When you take your last breath it will be too late. This is the most important decision you will ever make.
