Hello,

Here is a verse I memorized when I was a child. It has been a guide for me all my life.

Matthew 16: 26

“ For what is a man profited (what does he gain) if he shall gain the whole world, 

and lose his own soul?

What shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

The verses before Vs. 24 Vs 25

“If any man will come after me (Jesus), let him deny himself (give up his own way) and take up his cross, and follow me.”

“For who so ever shall save his life shall lose it: and who so ever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.”

People naturally have most of their thoughts on this life.

They have many things to do in a day. They have work. Things to do at home.

Taking care of children. Meals. Many things to do.

This life is not all there is. When this life ends it is not the end of life.

There is an eternal life ahead. Where will you be? Eternal life is much, much longer than this life.

This longer life you need to think about. Where will you be for eternal life?

The Bible tells us there are only two places. Heaven and Hell.

We decide where we will go now, while we are living on earth.

What we decide to do with Jesus will decide where we will life forever.

We must give up our own way and choose Jesus’ way and follow Him if we want life forever in heaven. If we ignore Jesus, and choose our own way we will not live in heaven.

Good-bye for now   . I’ll write again.                                                                        Sincerely, Joyce
