DEATH IS NOT THE END By Billy Joe Daugherty

The Sting of Death Is Sin

What does this mean? Sin produces death. It is a sting that results in death if it is not removed. People who haven’t given their lives to Christ do not have any hope for eternal salvation. They only hope that God will allow them to go to heaven. Many try to build up a stockpile of good works, hoping their good deeds will open the gates of heaven for them.

However, there is only one pathway that leads to heaven. If they do not take it, they are destined to spend eternity in hell, separated from God.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23

No one would have any hope of spending eternity in heaven had it not been for Jesus. He paid the wages of sin for mankind. He died so you might live! The moment you accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, you receive God’s forgiveness. Your sins are cleansed, and the sting is removed! Your spirit receives the gift of eternal life.
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2Corinthians 5:17

Your spirit man is recreated when you become born again. The stain of sin that separated you from God is now washed clean. The old nature of sin is gone, and a new Godnature has entered your heart.

Right With God

You also become righteous in the eyes of God. You receive your righteousness the same way you received salvation—by faith. Unrighteousness brings fear, inferiority, and condemnation. But righteousness produces faith, courage, and freedom from guilt.
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 Corinthians 5:21

The gift of righteousness is available to all who call upon the name of Jesus in faith. It is as close as your heart and mouth. This means that you believe you are righteous and that you don’t allow anyone to make you feel unrighteous. If thoughts of condemnation or inferiority flood your mind, you overcome them by speaking aloud what the Word says about your righteousness.
The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:8-10

 

Death Has No Sting for You!

When you invite Jesus into your heart to be your Lord and Savior, you have received the gift of eternal life and enter into the kingdom of God! When the time comes for you, or someone you know, to cross over into heaven, you don’t have to be fearful.
