What About Eternity?

Recently the Dallas Morning News highlighted two women who had life-threatening health issues. They were both told they had an incurable illness. They did not know each other but both of them knew they did not have much longer to live. One of them was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The other one had cystic fibrosis.

Of course, I was very saddened when I read about these two women. And I was also very disappointed because neither one gave any evidence, at least in the news account, of any concern about life after death. I did not get the impression from the articles that they thought or even cared about life after death.

How about you, the reader of this article? Where do you think you will spend eternity? I, of course, do not know you, but I do have very good news for you. The Bible tells us that we can be absolutely sure we are going to heaven after death. I'm sure you no doubt know about John 3:16. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." If you are not a child of God, I pray you will become one today. When you do, you will spend eternity in heaven.
