The Bottom Line

All the prayers have been lifted up. Your wife is already in heaven waiting to see if you’ll join her. You got your very last social security check. Your house sold. Both your kids and their families are living their lives out in Utah. Your three grandkids visited for the last time in August. All three of your best friends you played gin rummy with in the park every Saturday have all died.

The Holy Spirit whispered in your ear this morning at breakfast.,” Tonight your soul will be required of you. Jesus will come for you tonight.”

Okay, life as you know it is over. There is only one decision left to make. Just a few hours from now you’re going to go to hell or heaven. You won’t be making that decision. Jesus will. And where you go depends entirely on how Jesus knows you will answer this question–Did you have a personal, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. That’s His bottom line. There is no other criteria. If you did have a personal intimate relationship with Jesus you’ll be in heaven tonight and probably spend some quality time with your wife and maybe play a little gin rummy with your buddies.

If not…well I don’t even want to think what its going to be like where you’re going.

If you’ve still got some life left to live you might want to consider how you’ll answer Jesus’ bottom line one day.

    M wife left me almost 10 years ago to be with the Lord. She was 74 and a real warrior with her health problems ! I am 87, shut in, in much pain, waiting for the Lord for His perfect timing. Both my wife and me are very thankful that we were able to serve Him with gladness !
