10 out of 10 people die. Do you know where you will go when you die? There are only two choices: Heaven or Hell. Have you ever told a lie? What does that make you? Have you ever stolen anything? What do you call someone who steals? Have you ever looked at a person with Lust? Jesus says that anyone who looks upon another person with lust is already guilty of committing adultery with them in their heart. Have you ever hated someone? The Bible says that if you hate someone, you are guilty of murdering them in your heart.

How are you doing so far? Think you’re a good person? God says there is no one good, not one. So, if God, who is just, judges you guilty or innocent based on your answers to just these 4 Commandments, how do you think He will judge you? If God is just (and he is), you have broken His law, so He will have to judge you guilty. So then, that being the case, will you be sentenced to Heaven or Hell?

Well, the answer is Hell. Because a Righteous Judge cannot let a lying, murdering, lusting thief go unpunished any more than any just Judge could let the same go free. So you will be sentenced to Hell. Now that’s the bad news. Here’s the good news:

God paid your “fine” for you. He sent His Son to pay your sentence for you, in that Christ was completely without sin, and was punished in your place, so that you could be free through Him. He took your sentence (someone has to pay for your crimes against a Holy God, and no sinful human can). So, through Christ, your sentence can be commuted. BUT…you have to repent (realize the abomination of it, apologize and turn from your sin) to God and then surrender your life, your will, your heart to Jesus Christ and follow after Him. Next, get a Bible (ESV is good), read it and do what it says. Then, you can have eternal life in Heaven with the One Who created you in the first place, for His glory.

I highly suggest that you do that. You will be spending eternity in one place or the other….and Hell is a place where the worm never dies and the smoke of your torment will rise up forever and ever.
Repent, Surrender to Christ, and be saved. Don’t wait. You are not guaranteed even one more breath. And that last one will be the difference between Heaven and Hell, God as Father or God as Righteous Judge.
