LIFE AFTER DEATH

REST IN PEACE

My soul isn't resting in peace, as you may think.
While on earth I gained the world, and lost my soul.
My soul never had the chance to know Christ.
Or maybe it knew Christ but didn't follow Christ.
But now it is too late, my soul is lost forever.
The lid is closed, there is no coming back.
Oh, how I wish I could go back.
There is no going back once that last breath is gone.
Know him now, while you still have breath in your body.
Once that last breath is gone, you will have missed the reward.


HOME AT LAST

My time is up, my journey here on Earth has ended.
Now I sleep, my soul shall rest in peace.
My brother and my sister we shall be reunited.
My soul knew Christ and is saved from eternal torment.
I lived a life that was pleasing in God's sight.
No more pain and no more suffering.
I am victorious, the battle is won.
Be comforted because I am with Christ.



If you were to die today, where would your soul be? We are all going home, but it is up to you to decide where that home will be.  Being good won't get you into heaven alone, you have to have a relationship with Christ. Why would you even want to go to heaven to live with Christ, if you didn't even want to serve him on Earth? As one pastor said, "heaven will be hell to you." I know that there are those who don't believe in heaven or hell. I say it is better to believe that there is a heaven and hell and it is not, then to believe that there is no heaven and hell and there is. It's your choice.

  1. Nam if there was only this world to look forward to we would be men most miserable and what would be the point of serving God if one day we would not get to heaven to get our reward for righteous living. You make a good point of where would you soul be if you die, but a more important question is how many people have you shared the Good News of the Gospel with. Maybe if we as christians shared the word of salvation with others, there would be more souls saved when they die. It is our job to tell then and then leave the rest up to the Holy Spirit. I wamt as mamy people as possibe to go to heaven with me.

  2. I agree. We need to help others to know Christ.
