Here's the Million Dollar Question... What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? You may gain money, possessions, and comfort in this life but what happens after you die? Most people believe they're good enough to go to Heaven. Let's look at God's standard of goodness, the Ten Commandments: Have you ever lied or stolen? If so, you're a liar and a thief. If you've used God's name to curse, that's blasphemy. Have you ever committed adultery? Maybe you haven't, but God judges not only your actions but also the thoughts and intentions of your heart (Jer 17:10). Jesus said, "Anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart" (Matt 5:28). Since God is so holy and good, He must punish sin. He has written His law upon your heart and reveals it through your conscience. After death comes judgment (Heb 9:27) and when you are found guilty, you will go to Hell. Your sin is rebellion against the perfect, eternal God of the universe. Therefore, perfect justice demands your punishment be eternal. Imagine yourself in a courtroom, guilty of many serious crimes. The fine is one million dollars or life in prison. You are unable to pay, so the guards begin to drag you away. Suddenly someone in the courtroom yells, "STOP!", and approaches the bench. He speaks privately with the judge, and returns to his seat. The judge then looks at you and declares, "That was my son. He has agreed to pay your fine in full; you are free to go." That's what Jesus Christ did for you! He died on the cross as a sinless substitute to bear the punishment you deserve. This satisfied the demands of divine justice in your place. He then defeated death by rising from the dead three days later. The Bible expresses it like this: "God demonstrates His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Rom 5:8). So what must you do to be saved? Forsake your sin and throw yourself at the mercy of the Judge. Trust in Jesus Christ alone as your only hope and ask God to forgive you on the basis of Jesus paying your fine. He will give you new life and never let you down.
