Millions of ages as numerous as the stars in the skies, as the sands on the seashore, as blades of grass on the surface of the globe, as leaves which fall from the trees in autumn are as nothing in comparison with eternity! But where shall we exist? How will eternity be spent by us? In happiness or in torment?
That will entirely depend upon the character, the state, the condition in which we live and die. If we live in sin, if we serve self and Satan, if we die accursed then we must suffer the due desert of our deeds in eternal Hell. But if we believe in Jesus, if we live unto God, if we die under His blessing, then we shall possess and enjoy glory, honor and eternal life in Heaven and these forever!
Let the solemn fact that you are immortal, deeply impress your mind. Try to realize the overwhelming thought, "I must live forever! I must live forever in unspeakable happiness or inconceivable misery! My eternal state depends on my present state. If I live unconverted, then I must die accursed, I am lost, and once lost, lost forever!" O eternity! Tremendous sound! Incomprehensible idea!
Romans 8:6 ... For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
