Ultimately, EVERYONE wants to end up in HEAVEN opposed to thinking about spending eternity in hell, where you’ll burn forever, with no likely relief. Not to suggest that it’d ever be ok to end up there, but if you knew you were damned to burn for ONLY a certain amount of time, then maybe it wouldn’t be so scary. On the other hand, you’ll never be able to escape torment and turmoil… It will be excruciating pain and agony.
Therefore, start TODAY living your life in a way that you’re confident that you’ll be a worthy candidate for HEAVEN. And we do this by having and keeping a close relationship with God, studying His Word, Praying to & Praising Him, and following His Commandments. Making it to HEAVEN requires that we have an intimate relationship with God and accept that Jesus is His ONLY begotten Son, sent to die on the cross for the remission of our sins. That’s what Praise is all about; even if we don’t have nothing, in our minds, that brings about excitement, the mere fact Jesus suffered in our place is reason enough.
All He went through FOR US should cause us to Praise Him regularly!!! Just think of the troubles you’ve faced and near death experiences you encountered or never even have to face, simply because He paid it forward SMH. How could we even second guess living right, to show our appreciation for His sacrificial death? To me, we make a mockery of Jesus when we willfully sin and dance around with the devil on a day-to-day basis, as if what He did for us was mediocre… He was human, and the lashes He took to His flesh was REAL.
I put emphasis on TODAY because tomorrow ain’t promised to any of us… Death is adamant, there’s no question that we all will leave this earth someday. The imperative question at hand is where will our Spirit go thereafter? Choose now, to surrender your all to Christ, first thanking Him for His offering on our behalves. Then, ask Him into your heart, mind and soul, to help you live upright daily. Although, He knows our shortcomings, still confess them aloud, and allow Him the ability to help you get it right, so that you’ll be PLEASING in His sight. Earth ain’t my home! I don’t know about y’all, but I’m overjoyed about and can’t wait so see my mansion in Heaven, not only for the beauty within. But, more because I know I’ll never worry, cry, hurt, be sad, mad, envious, nor distraught again :-).
God loves us unconditionally, and it’s NOT His desire that ANY of us should live in lack or perish… Let Him in, it’s nothing like a connection with God and the reassurance that HEAVEN will eventually be your peaceful HOME. See ya there 🙂

Thanx bunches, and it’s my pleasure
Oh no, I’m not upset… your comment is totally fine. I actually appreciate you elaborating more on the primary subject of SALVATION. My intent is just to get as many as will to seek God and live right that’s all… Maybe I don’t explain it correctly, what I feel inside, but whatever I can do I wanna make sure I do… Thanx bunches 🙂

I LOVE your post! but I hate that you have to worry about keeping your salvation, because you don’t! From what I understand in the Bible there is no way to earn or keep your salvation. Ephesians 2:8 says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God…” Not meaning to correct you but just encourage you that there’s no way we could do enough to earn it, or be worthy, and we are not powerful enough to knock it out of His hand, Romans 8: 38-39 reminds us, “For I am persuaded , that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present , nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Isn’t it great we don’t have to win our salvation by works, (Ephesians 2:9, “Not of works, lest any man should boast…”) – otherwise I love love love what you said! and as a result of our heart change we end up doing those things that show we love Him!
I am so glad that you know the Lord — and I hope you have a wonderful day! Hope you are not upset by what I said, just reminding you we don’t have to try so hard!!
