One Step Closer To God

One Step Closer

With every second we live, and with every breath we take, we are all one step closer to heaven, or one step closer to hell. Every human ever born of woman will face physical death, (Heb 9:27)  but to those who have been baptized into the body of Christ, death is not a death sentence, but the beginning of their eternal life.  (Mk 16:16; Tit 1:2) Death has no power over those who have been buried with Christ by baptism into his death. (Rev 2:11; Rom 6:3,4) However, to all those who know not God, and have not obeyed the gospel of Christ, your reward is now, but death and hell awaits you with a lake of fire, where there shall be weeping, and gnashing of teeth. (2 Thess 1:7-9) Don’t delay, (Acts 24:25) and don’t stand in jeopardy every hour, (1 Cor 15:30) for the time is now to get prepared to meet the Lord our God, who shall judge us all according to the gospel, (Jn 12:48; Rom 2:16) and our deeds. (2 Cor 5:10,11) Be so ready and confidant that you can also say the words of the apostle Paul: For me to live is in Christ, and to die is gain! (Philip 1:21; Ps 116:15; Rev  14:13)
