[Mark 10:21] “21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
[Mark 10:22] “22 At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.
[Mark 10:23] “23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!”
Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart because He loves you more than you can fathom. What’s keeping you from letting Him into your life? Pride, or maybe money? How about a lifestyle of careless living? Whatever the reason is, it is not worth it. We all are appointed to die once and go to a place of eternity.
There are only two places where you can choose. The first one is heaven, where Jesus reigns with His angels, and one day will reign on earth with His saints. The second one is the one that I would try to persuade you from going, which is hell. Hell, was first created for Satan and his fallen angels. Since men fell into sin, it has become our sentence unless we choose the only way out.
In John 11:25-26, the Scripture declares, “25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
The life that Jesus was referring to is one with Him in heaven where there are no sufferings, tears, pain, tribulations, homelessness, anguish, and sadness. If you reject Jesus, you won’t get eternal life, but a place of torment, where you will experience the pain of weeping and gnashing of teeth in hell. God is not in that place. And you don’t have to be there either.
The only way to escape the place of torment is by putting your trust in Jesus Christ, that He died for your sins on the cross, rose from the grave on the third day, and is seated with the Father in heaven. Only Jesus can forgive your sins if you ask Him. Why are you waiting? Remember, no one is promised tomorrow, so don’t waste any more time, go.
