“Simon Peter asked him, “Lord, where are you going?” Jesus replied,”Where I am going, you cannot follow now, but you will follow later.” John 13:36 NIV
Read: John 3:16-21
It seems, we are all coming from somewhere or going to somewhere. Where are you going? Do you have a destination? You may have a geographic destination, an emotional destination or a spiritual destination.
There is a problem with both a geographic destination or an emotional place you are led to be. Both are only temporary. They may satisfy you for hours or even years. Yet, in time neither will have nothing to offer you.
GOD has a place for you. The place is so special; HE sent HIS son to take on all your sinful burdens so you can spend all eternity with HIM. John 3:16 tells us: “For GOD so loved the world that he gave HIS one and only SON, that whoever believes in HIM shall not perish but have eternal life.” Then HE clarifies and removes all doubt in verse 17: “For GOD did not send HIS SON into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through HIM.”
Scripture tells us only those who have chosen JESUS as their SAVIOUR will spend eternity in Heaven. We can see that is very true by just looking around at the sin in this world. Most don’t believe. Many of those who claim to be believers are living out their lives just as the non-believers do and will never see to glory of Heaven.
Do you know where you are going? There are only two destinations.
Today’s prayer: “LORD, Thank YOU for sending YOUR SON, to save me from an eternity in hell. I know where I am going. I will be obedient to YOU. Amen.”
