Someday all our worldly possessions will be gone. The only thing we can take with us is our relationship with Jesus. God offers us eternal life as a free gift that we must each individually accept by acknowledging that Jesus paid the price for our sins when He died on the cross and rose again. I stopped trying to be good enough and earn my way into heaven and accepted God's gift of eternal life through His Son Jesus Christ in 1988.
It wasn't until just a few years ago, though, that I really understood how much God loved me in sending Jesus to die in my place and really started living for Him, putting Him first in my life, making Him Lord. My relationship with Christ is the most important thing in my life. Beyond the game of baseball, He gives me lasting joy, contentment and peace. That's the great thing about allowing Jesus to become Lord--He really knows and wants what is best for my life. Not only did He come to provide a way for us to have eternal life, but He came to make our lives better while we are here on earth.
Take a look at all the things you possess. Do you have the most important thing--a relationship with Jesus? My prayer is that you will invite Him into your heart as the Lord and Savior of your life, trusting only in His death as the payment for your sins.
