Physical life is a journey—so is spiritual life!The right choice will take you from the earth to the new earth.Consider some key aspects of this trip.
Choose The Right Road For Your Final Destination~“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life.No one comes to the Father except through Me’” (John 14:6).
Take Immediate Passage~“For He says: ‘In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation I have helped you.’Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2).
No Stop-Overs Are Allowed~“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, ‘If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free’” (John 8:31-32).
Have Implicit Trust In The Conductor~“So they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household’” (Acts 16:31).
Your Ticket Is Not Transferrable~“For each one shall bear his own load” (Galatians 6:5).
There Is Only One Option~“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
“Jesus said, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.’Jesus used this illustration, but they did not understand the things which He spoke to them.
Then Jesus said to them again, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.All who ever came before Meare thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.I am the door.If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.I am the good shepherd.The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd’” (John 10:1-16).
