THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
My heart breaks when someone says, "Not right now. Maybe later."
Life is BRIEF.
And, Life is UNCERTAIN!
"And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know."
Jesus had told them many times that He was to die, be resurrected, and ascend to heaven.
(See Matthew 16:21, Luke 9:22, Luke 18:31-32)
They knew by His statements that He was to ascend into heaven after His death, burial and resurrection.
They did not WANT to believe it, because they did not want to LOSE His physical presence.
We know, by God's revelation in the Word, that He is ascended to heaven, and one day returning.
The question for most folks is: are you ready to go as He went? (See Luke 9:23)
(See also John 12:24-26)
He DIED for you! Why not LIVE for Him?
We must be ready to DIE to ourselves, and be resurrected by His Spirit to new life. (See 2Corinthians 5:17)
They DID know where He was going.
And they DID know "the way" to get there.
They knew, because He had TOLD them!
But they didn't WANT to know!
And THAT is precisely why most folk never come to real Biblical salvation.
They are NOT willing to give up SELF and live for Jesus!
Life is BRIEF and UNCERTAIN!
