Be Ready to Leave

How you leave this world at the moment of death, the spiritual condition you are in is how you will meet God in eternity. Unless one has been born again, who has placed their faith in Christ and what he did on the cross, how you die is how you'll stand in that great and terrible day.

Works won't save you. Keeping to the law won't save you. Being a nice person won't save you. Being a good Father or Mother won't save you. Being a member of a church, or never missing Sunday church won't save you. None of those things amount to any level of righteousness for salvation, only faith in the finished work of the cross will redeem man from his sins. Play with your soul and you play with eternity.

[Christopher Gregory]

Romans 10:9-10 ... That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

2 Corinthians 5:10 ... For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Acts 4:12 ... Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Revelation 20:12 ... And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
