To begin with, I have a question for you to ponder. When was the last time you turned down an invitation? No matter what it was — you chose not to attend or accept it. I’m pretty sure, the answer to that question is a resounding yes. And how do I know that to be true? Because I have done so myself. Now, the invitation I’m talking about — if accepted, guarantees eternal life.
You are invited
It is possible, that you have never thought about where you will spend eternity. Or you don’t believe in life after death. Well, I must ask you this question if you are of the latter group. Are you willing to gamble with your eternity? Either way, if you are still reading this blog post, don’t let this moment pass you by. If you are willing to accept it — Jesus of Nazareth has extended the invitation for eternal life to you.
In general, if you ask some people the meaning of the word ‘grace’ they may say it is the prayer offered at a meal. Whereas for others ‘grace’ is the period of time between a bill due date and final notice. Although grace has several definitions, for this post, I am talking about the grace of God. Hence, the title of this podcast episode; Grace–God’s Generosity.
Have you ever thought about where you will spend eternity? Of course, there are those who do not believe there is life after death. They deny the concept of one going to either heaven or hell at the moment of death. And you know what—that’s their right to do so. But to those of you who are the least bit curious, this podcast episode is for you because—eternity awaits.
Generally speaking, there are three main religions that believe ineternal life. And those religions are Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. When looking at it from a Christian perspective, the Holy Bible is very clear about eternal life.John 17:3 Modern English Version says, “This is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.”
And John 3:16 Modern English Version says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.”
