Just because you’re born-again and you made Jesus the Lord of your life, the devil is not done with you. If he can wrestle you away from your Savior, he will use any means possible. The devil doesn’t care if you go to heaven or hell, he just wants you out of his way. If he can find some way to separate you from God he will do it. When you understand and grasp this, you will become more determined than ever to holdfast to the miracle of salvation.
You are a spirit. You are an eternal being, the shortest time of your life is the one you’re living right now. I have an aunt that is a hundred and two years old, that’s nothing compared to eternity. The quality of your eternity will be greatly affected by what you do in this life. If you love Jesus, you’re grateful and you desire a place in Heaven, no one can take that way from you.
1 Thessalonians 4:17-18
...And so shall we ever be with the Lord. Comfort one another with these words.
Forever is just way too long to live with regret, but it’s just right if you’re reigning with the Lord. Carefully consider your eternal plans, if Jesus is at the center keep Him there. Holdfast to the truth and it will sustain you throughout eternity and beyond.
