Think About This!

    What popped into your mind when you read this title? I have some ideas why you thought what you did. But let’s not forget, it is usually true, that the older we get, the more we forget things that we wanted never to forget. We all have the same problem, don’t we?

    What do you think I’m asking you to think about? All of us think about a lot of things, don’t we? Of course, we are all getting older and have forgotten some things. I ask you to think about where you will spend eternity. That’s the most important thing all of us need to think about.

    We all forget some things. This seems to be getting more active the older we get. Do you remember how old you were when you got your first discipline from your parents? Was it your father or your mother who disciplined you? Or did both do it? How about the first time you kissed another person, male or female? Do you remember how old you were when you did that? How is it that we all remember forgetting things we hoped we’d never forget? I remember one thing at least that I’ll never forget. "I can’t wait to know what that is,” you might ask. Here it is. I remember when I was a teenager, my parents took me to church regularly.  But there is one time I know I’ll never forget. That was the time I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. I have been reminded many times since I made that decision. I did it because the Bible says in John 3:16  that God so loved mankind that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever accepts Him receives eternal life. Do you remember when you did that? If you have not accepted Him, why not do it now and you will never forget it. No one can go to heaven any other way.
