If I were to ask you the question of “Where will you go when you die,” what would your answer be? In Luke chapter 16, Jesus spoke a parable about a rich man and a beggar. The rich man lived a worldly life and did not trust in God. The beggar lived a life of poverty but according to the passage, he did trust in God. Upon the two men’s death, the rich man went to hell and Lazarus, the beggar went to heaven. Jesus makes a couple of important statements in this parable. In verse 23 we read; “And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.” This verse tells us that there are two destinations when one dies. In verse 26 we read; “And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.” From this verse, we see that the decisions we make on this earth are binding through eternity. Now once again, I will ask you the question of “Where will you go when you die?” If you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the answer is sadly, “You will spend eternity in hell.” If you realize this is the situation you are in, now is the time to do something about it. I invite you to read the Gospel of John through the eyes of a child and ask the Lord to reveal Himself to you.
