John 14:6

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Have you ever stood at the grave of a friend, and wondered

when your life will end? The one in that box hasn’t really

died. He has only passed to the other side. And the day will

come when you too must go. And your destination, you

should know. Though you treat folks good, and live life well,

you could still end up in the fires of hell. Your salvation’s not

bought by works you do, but by faith in God’s Son who died

for you. Christ died on the cross to pay sin’s price, and by

trusting Him, you’ll not die twice. Now the day will come

when friends stand at your grave, will they know you knew

the Christ who could save? Will they know, from your life,

you are Heavenward bound, or will they just stand and look  

at the ground? Time is short and our days are so few, is

eternity’s question settled for you? Have you trusted Christ,

who said; “I am the Way?” The choice is yours, my friend;

why not settle it today?                               ---Henry C. Baxindine
