Election night is over, but we still await a decision on who the next president will be. What a mess, and honestly, I am not smart enough to try and unwind it all. Instead, the best thing I can do is pray and rest in knowing the Lord knows everything and sees it all. In the meantime, I have good news to share that is more important than the outcome of the 2020 elections. It’s life-changing, life-altering, and the best.
Would you or someone you know like some good news?
Stay with me.
For many people, including myself, 2020 has been unlike anything you could imagine. Please see my other two blog posts titled End Times Stuff for a rundown on 2020.
Moreover, it has also been a time of personal reflection, inventorying what is really important, and a time of searching our hearts. For many, it has been a time of evaluating where things stand and, more importantly, where we stand with the Lord.
With the election of our lifetime still undecided as I write this, I think it’s important to share the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ again because no matter who wins the presidential election, the ultimate decision for your future lies in your eternal decision.
Yes, you’re eternal decision.
Let me ask you a question.
Where will you spend eternity after you die? Heaven or hell?
Have you ever given that any thought? You are going somewhere when you die.
I remember a beautiful young friend of mine about six years ago who confidently told me that she would be taking a dirt nap when she dies. That was it; there was no going to heaven or hell because, in her mind, neither existed. Almost six months later, and totally unexpected, she passed away due to a freak accident. I still haven’t forgotten what she said to me that day. I can only hope she changed her mind somewhere along the way.
Heaven or hell?
Both are real places, according to the Bible.
Both are complete opposites of each other.
Heaven sounds delightful, and hell sounds frightening.
Can you see the signs?
The signs are all around us, and we need to pay attention to them (Refer you to my “End Times Stuff” blog posts for details.)
2020 has definitely helped me focus on what’s really important. We have experienced life in ways we never imagined. I don’t know anyone who saw this coming when we rang in the new year on January 1st. We have been moving through this year at breakneck speed—all the more reason to sit up and pay attention to what really matters.
What’s the good news?
“You have good news?
Yes, I have good news.
The good news is the Gospel of Jesus Christ! It’s not only good news; it’s great news for everyone who will choose to believe. The Apostle Paul shares this good news in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4. Check it out.
“Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance[a]: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.”
That is good news, my friend! These days we can use some good news.
We have good news to share!
Share the good news of Jesus Christ with everyone. Many do not know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, and now is the time. Today is the day of salvation.
We do not know what’s going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month, or next year, but as Jesus instructed the disciples and the same applies to us today, we must be watching, waiting, and ready to go. We are not promised tomorrow. There’sno time to waste.
If you know someone who doesn’t know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, now is the time to share the good news – the gospel of Jesus Christ! Wouldn’t it be great if they were in heaven too?
Yes, I know there’s a chance of rejection. Been there done that myself, but how will they know if we don’t share it? How will they hear if we don’t tell them? Chances are you will be rejected, but think about this – they are ultimately rejecting Christ, not you.
Here’s a very simple way to share the gospel message in addition to the Scripture above.
A – Admit you are a sinner. (Romans 3:10; 3:23; 6:23)
B – Believe Jesus is Lord. (Romans 10:9-10)
C – Call upon his name. (Romans 10:9-10)
Be watching. Be waiting. Get ready. Share the good news!
Blessings to you and your family!
