It's your choice, but don't wait

"And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake; some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting contempt." (Daniel 12:2)

The Lord God almighty knows all who will come to everlasting life and those who will not. We do not. We are to share the Good News of His Son, Jesus Christ, to all we meet along the ways we travel. Our job is to share, to witness to all we come in contact; their response is between themselves and the Lord. We cannot make the right decision for them.

The other night on television there was a two-part episode of "Ghost Whisperer." A plane had crashed near a city and all except one (who was not even on the plane) died. But they were in limbo land. They didn't know what happened and wanted to know; upon learning, they could make the decision to go toward the light (depicted as heaven) or toward the dark (depicted as Satan and hell).

Our decisions to do what is right are not made at our death (as portrayed in this show), but while we are alive.

At death, our souls have already moved on, based on decisions made while alive. It is then too late. Do't wait until it is too late. Don't keep saying "later, later." You repeatedly say this over and over -- later, after high school, after college, after I have some fun, after this beer, after this trip, after the surgery. Later never comes. When you have died, there is no later. You are in the later and your decision is made.

Do it now. Go into the light. Be part of the light. Live life with the Father, who art in heaven.
