Condemned Already?

Condemned Already?

Many people try to force the unpleasant thoughts of death from their mind by assuring themselves, “There’s lots of time to think about dying.”  But God says,

Prov. 27:1

Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.

The daily news regularly reports sudden deaths–an auto accident–a faulty bridge–an explosion–a plane crash, etc.  Tomorrow your name could be listed among the day’s victims!

Many fear death but it is what comes after death that should be feared.  God’s Word says…

Heb. 9:27

Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,

When you stand before the Divine Judge, what will His verdict be?

You need not wait until then to find out.  Jesus said…

John 3:18

Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

This is the state of all mankind, because…

Rom. 5:12

Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned—

So, unless you have placed your trust in Jesus Christ, you are under sentence of eternal punishment right now!  But a pardon is offered you…

John 8:36

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

Take these steps now:

Admit you are a sinner…

Rom. 3:23

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Repent in prayer with true sorrow for your sinfulness…

Is. 55:7

Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

Believe God’s Word that Jesus Christ is your only Hope and Savior…

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Accept His pardon for your sin…

Rom. 10:9-10 That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
