The worst that could happen
Do you worry? Fret? Agonize? Do you allow the worry to run rampant, disturbing your day and unsettling your night? What is the worst that could happen? Take that worry, take it to the end.
Lots of terrible things can happen. I understand. I know. But what happens in the end? The very end. Death of a dream. Death of a loved one. Death of a situation … Death.
Death is never the end. New doors open. New life is given. New hope comes. Even in physical death, the soul remains. Death is not the end.
In death, if you’re a Christian, you are winged to heaven’s door. To your perfect home where there is no more sickness, no more pain, no more worry, no fear, no tears of agony, nothing bad, and no evil. Heaven is joy, peace, love, love, and more love.
And those loved ones you will leave behind? God will be there for them. God will provide. God will comfort. God will bring peace.
If you’re not a Christian, you still have time. You can still say yes to God’s Son, Jesus Christ. There is a place for you too. Heaven’s doors are open wide and waiting. If you’re afraid to make that leap, afraid to become a Christian … what is the worst that could happen? Take it to the end. The very end.
God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him won’t perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world, through Him might be saved. If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and if you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you will be saved. Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. (John 3:16-17, Romans 10:9, Mark 16:16, Revelation 20:15).
For those who have said yes to Jesus Christ, they will hear a voice from the throne saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain” (Revelation 21:3-4, NLT).
