ARE YOU SURE ABOUT YOUR ETERNITY?
WHERE WILL YOU GO WHEN YOU DIE?
Where will I go when I die?
Instinctively you know there must be more to you existence than just living and dying, but what?
What happens after I die?
The Bible says, “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). After you die, you will stand before God to have your life judged.
How will I be judged?
The Bible says all everyone will be judged on how they kept the law of God (Romans 2:12–13), which is summed up in the Ten Commandments (i.e. “thou shalt not lie, steal, covet, take God’s name in vain,” etc.). If in your life you failed to keep any part of God’s Law at any time, you will be judged as a law breaker (James 2:10–11; Galatians 3:10). You then will be convicted of sinning against God’s law and will fail the test (1 John 3:4).
Can I pass the test?
The Bible says that everyone is guilty of not keeping the law of God, because “there is none righteous, no, not one” (Romans 3:10). This means you cannot pass the test, “for all [including you] have sinned”(Romans 3:23).
What are the consequences?
The Bible says the wages (or price) of your sin has earned you death in Hell for eternity (Romans 6:23a; Revelation 20:12–15).
Is there any hope?
Yes! The Bible says that “But God commendeth [proved] his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). Christ passed His test of God’s Law by living a sinless life (Galatians 4:4-5; Hebrews 4:15) and paid the price for your sins by dying on the cross (1 Peter 2:24). His sacrifice is a pardon from sin for all who believe on Him.
How can I accept this pardon?
There is nothing you can do to earn it. However, Jesus Christ chose to offer the pardon that He paid for as a free gift to you (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 6:23b)! Now you only need to admit your sin to God and need for forgiveness and simply ask Jesus Christ to save you. If you do this, He will forgive you of all your sins and give you eternal life (Romans 10:9-10, 13).
