From The Pastor,             

     Last Friday morning I had to drive down to Dalton for a meeting.  Going down the interstate they have those overhead signs with various messages on them.  Friday the display read 985 deaths so far this year on Georgia highways.  I did some quick math in my head and came to a sobering conclusion.  If the statistics are correct for Georgia, that means just almost 800 people are in hell today who lost their lives in traffic accidents in our state just this year.  I personally knew four of these people.  That means statistically three people whom I knew are in hell today.  That thought horrifies me. 

You and I know that the fact these people died in traffic accidents is not the reason they are in hell.  The accidents, although tragic,   were nothing more than the cause of physical death, which is something we all must face.  The real loss is that of any opportunity to come to know Christ as Lord and Savior.  It was the absence of a personal relationship to Christ that condemned those people to an eternity in hell. 

     I know some of you may think I am being judgmental in making these statements.  I am fully aware that the subject of hell is becoming more and more taboo, even in our pulpits.  If you read the Gospels you will find that Jesus mentioned and taught about hell much more often than he did heaven.  Even though it may be an unpopular subject, hell is as real today as it has ever been, and people need to be warned about its existence.  It is also imperative that they be told how to avoid such a place.  Such preaching and conversation may make you unpopular today, but will result in rewards in eternity. 

     It would not be a wrong assumption to say that most, if not all, of those who have died on Georgia highways this year left home with no expectation that would be their last day of life.  Most of these folks were not prepared for what would happen that day.  We make preparation for all kinds of events in our lives.  We plan for births, weddings, retirement, and on goes the list, but I must ask the question, “Are you prepared to die?” 

The Word of God is very plain on this of grass that withers, and has the speed of a weaver’s shuttle.  Secondly, we are told that we should prepare to meet God.  Amos told Israel, “…, prepare to meet thy God, …” Jesus taught repeatedly that we do not know when he will return, but that we should be ready.  Last, the Word of God teaches us, as does nature, that death is inevitable.  However, God’s Word goes a step further.  It teaches us that after death we will all face judgment.  “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” HEBREWS 9:27

Does it not seem reasonable that since death is inevitable and judgment is certain that preparation for these events should be made?  Recently we have heard the phrase, “All Lives Matter.”  That is very true in the here and now, but it is also eternally true.  Mankind and his life is so important to God that he has made it possible for man to be forgiven of sin and to live with him forever.  The plan is simple.  Follow it through these verses.

All have sinned: Romans 3:10 & 23

Sin has a price: Romans 6:23

God loves you

and paid your sin

debt: Romans 5:8

You must believe: Romans 10:9-10

Forgiveness is for

whosoever will: Romans 10:13
