"An Open Bible"
For several years now, I've been writing "Sunday's Thought" with only one goal. It is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others as best as I can through stories. My original intent was to focus on sharing with my fellow artists including photographers that I have met and enjoyed their work over the years. However, I began thinking that was too limited and worked to focus my writing on God's Good News rather than a specific audience.
This week, I began wondering whether you, dear reader, know exactly where you will spend eternity after you die. Yup. Once you die, you will go to heaven or hell. Do you know where you will go? If you dropped dead this second, where are you heading?
Many people believe that because they are good people, doing good things, and staying out of trouble, they will go to heaven. Or, they believe because they call themselves Christian, they are heaven-bound. Some people think because they go to church, doesn't matter what church, sing a few songs, read a few Scriptures, say a few prayers, and recite church liturgical readings, they will go to heaven. It would be great if that were true.
What is true? If you pray to Jesus asking Him to forgive your sins with a sincere heart, He will forgive you of your sins. Follow Him going forward to live the Christian life God wants for you. It is as simple as that. God will form you into the person He wants you to be, possibly without you even realizing it, which is what happened to me. I wouldn't trade my life for anything else... thanks be to God, that is.
