Without a doubt, the most thought-provoking of one-liners is "Eat right, stay fit, die anyway." Do you ever think about that fact... that you will one day die? Life has so many joys... it has so much love and laughter, but the cold fact of death is the ultimate wet blanket. The great Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy said, "What is life for? To die? To kill myself at once? No, I am afraid. To wait for death until it comes? I fear that even more. Then I must live. But what for? In order to die? And I could not escape from that circle." Jesus Christ destroyed that "circle." When true conversion takes place death loses its sting. Life is no longer futile. Whether you have contemplated suicide or not, please consider this thought. If there was one chance in a million that Jesus Christ abolished death (as the Bible claims), then you owe it to your good sense just to check it out (you have nothing to lose). The way to see if you need the Savior is to look for a moment at the Ten Commandments. Let's do that. Have you ever lied (even once--fibs, white lies, etc.)? Ever stolen (anything--the value is irrelevant)? Jesus said, "Whoever looks upon a woman to lust after her, has committed adultery already with her in his heart." Have you ever looked with lust? If you have said "Yes" to these three questions, by your own admission, you are a lying, thieving, adulterer at heart; and we've only looked at three of the Ten Commandments. Will you be innocent or guilty on the Day of Judgment? You know that you will be guilty, and therefore end up in Hell. That's not God's will. He provided a way for you to be forgiven. He sent His Son to take your punishment: "God commended His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." He was bruised for our iniquities. Jesus then rose from the dead and defeated death. Pray something like this: "Dear God, I repent of all of my sins (name them). This day I put my trust in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Please forgive me and grant me your gift of everlasting life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen" Then read the Bible daily and obey what you read (see John 14:21). God will never let you down. By the way, thank you for taking the time to read this.
