America hasn’t seen a pandemic in a long time since the coronavirus. I haven’t seen one like this in my lifetime. It’s progressed so quickly around the world, sickening people, and taking lives. People are in fear, panic, having a sense of hopelessness, and are in fear of catching it, and dying. A lot of people don’t think of death until something likes this happens. There’s a fear of death. People don’t want to die. There’s a fear because they don’t know what lies beyond. Some believe there’s an afterlife, and a better place. Some believe they will just die and cease to exist. Some believe there’s a better place, and a place that is not so good. There is a better place called heaven, and a horrible place called hell. The bible tells us about both of them, and that people are destined for one of two places after death. People aren’t going to die and cease to exist. We have a soul that will live forever either in heaven or in hell. The bible tells us, we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. We have all broken God’s moral law the 10 commandments. We have all lied, stolen, taken God’s name in vain, thought, lustful thoughts, and hated someone in our heart. The bible says if you have broken 1 of the commandments, you have broken them all. The 10 commandments are like a mirror that shows us how sinful we are, and that we are condemned to that horrible place called hell. It was given by God to man to show us that we fall short of his holy standards, and that we couldn’t measure up no matter how many good deeds, or works we have done. Our good deeds and works can’t get us to heaven. We can’t rely on our own goodness either, because we have none. We deserve hell and judgment because we have all rebelled against God. He is perfectly just for sending us there. There is only one way to heaven, and its by believing the gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s believing in faith that he died on the cross for our sins according to the scriptures, that he was buried, and that he was raised from the dead on the third day according to the scriptures. Only the blood of Christ can wash away our sins. Heaven isn’t for good people, it’s for forgiven people. It’s Jesus plus nothing. It’s unbelief that will send people to their eternal doom in hell. People will have to trample underfoot the son of God to get to hell. God has done  everything he can to provide a way for us to get to heaven. Because Jesus loves us, he willfully laid his life down, and died the substitutionary death that we deserve so that we can come into a rightful relationship with God through his death on the cross. God offers the free gift of salvation to everyone. The question is will you accept it? People have lost hope during this pandemic, but the hope is Jesus Christ. Sin is a disease, and Jesus is the cure. If we had a cure for cancer, we would tell the doctors so they could cure people. Christianity has a cure for the malignancy of the soul, and that is the gospel of Jesus Christ. So your choice will be to believe it, and accept God’s offer of salvation, or to reject it. I pray you will accept it, because it will be the best decision of your life, and eternity. Put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ because you aren’t getting out of here without him.
