…exclaims a national weekly news magazine!
Dear friend, what is next for you?
"It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Heb. 9:27) declares the Word of God, the Bible! A few years ago, an atheist professor was invited to address a group of students and their family members. He poured out his verbiage against the very thought of God, and heaped ridicule upon all those foolish enough to believe in God and in the Bible as the Word of God. After he finished he asked if anyone had any questions.
One of the students’ mother, a widow, rose to her feet and asked him "Sir, I cannot answer your arguments; your learning is beyond me. With your superior intelligence will you answer me one question? I have been a believer in Christ for many years, I have rejoiced in his salvation, and I have enjoyed my Bible. This comfort has been a tremendous joy. If, when I die, I come to learn that there is no God and that the Bible is not true and that there is no salvation by believing on the Lord Jesus and there is no heaven, Sir, what have I lost by believing on Christ?" The room was very still. The professor answered in quiet tones, "Madam, you won’t stand to lose a thing." Hearing this, the women spoke again,
"You have been kind to have answered my question. Permit me to ask another. If when you die, you discover that the Bible is true, that there is a God and that the Lord Jesus is real, and there is a heaven and a hell, Sir, what will you stand to lose?" There was a great silence and no answer!
Dear friend, you do not know what will happen tomorrow!
"Because [there is] wrath, [beware] lest he take thee away with [his] stroke: then a great ransom cannot deliver thee" (Job36:18).
Accept God’s offer of salvation for "How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation?" (Heb. 2:3).
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).
