I Want Everyone to Go

This posting is a bit different.  It’s emotional.  It’s spiritual.  It’s idealistic.

We are on a journey.  If you are reading this, you’re on a journey.  We may not always think about the future, or our ultimate destination.  We’ve got lives to live, problems to solve, bills to pay, chores to accomplish.  All of this is true.  But, we also have a destiny, a final destination.

There are as many ideas about where we will end up as their are people on the planet.  Some believe that what we have in this life is all there is, and when we die it is over.  Others believe that all people go to heaven.  Still others believe that if we do enough good works, we will go to heaven.

But, God has created a plan, and His plan includes you.  His plan is for you to spend eternity with Him in heaven.  He has already made the provisions for this to happen.  The ticket has been purchased, the price has been fully paid.  There is one catch – you have to redeem the ticket for yourself.  No one else can do this for you.  You cannot purchase this ticket, nor can you earn it.  It is the free gift of God.  This gift is wrapped up in His Son Jesus Christ.

So, how about the title of this posting?  Well, I don’t want just a few people to go.  I want everyone to go.  I want to take everyone with me, if that were possible.  But, I can’t make people go.  The choice is an individual one.  It is not complicated, and it doesn’t require reading a 45 page contract, with all the fine print.  It only requires you to accept Jesus as your Savior, to recognize His sacrifice as the forgiveness of your sins, and you are on your way.

Will everything be smooth sailing after you make your decision?  No, probably not.  But, the destination will be secure, unchangeable, unmovable, and magnificent.  In fact, according to Revelation it will be beautiful beyond human imagination.

No one can force you to make this choice.  I would like to say there are many ways to reach God and heaven, but the Bible makes it clear that God has only provided a Plan A.  No Plan B, Plan C, or alternates.  It is not a plan that was thought up by man, or by man’s imagination.  The plan was God’s alone.  It was not possible that man could redeem himself, so God sent His Son to redeem us, and pave the way for us to be in fellowship with Him.

If this sounds like a sermon, then you have missed the point.  The point is not to preach, but to persuade you to give God a chance.  After all, whether your journey has been easy or hard, we want it to end well, don’t we?
