May I suggest

a few "WHAT IFS"

for you to ponder?

WHAT IF there really is a Creator-God? What Implications does that make for me, His creation?

For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him. And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.   Colossians 1:16,17

WHAT IF that Creator will hold man, His Creation, accountable in a day of judgment?

For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.   And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:   Hebrew 9:26-27

 WHAT IF the Creator-God really loves man, His Creation?

 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.   I John 3:16

 WHAT IF the Creator-God has a son named Jesus?

For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.   II Peter 1:16-17

WHAT IF Jesus is who the Bible claims He is?

 Eternal God:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.   John 1:1-3

 Virgin Born:

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.   Matthew 1:23

Sinless:

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.   II Corinthians 5.21

 Savior:

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11

 Resurrected Lord:

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:   I Corinthians 15:3-4

 WHAT IF He is really the only way to God. as He claimed to be?

 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.   John 14:6

 WHAT IF I arrive at Heavenís door with misplaced hope of entering in?

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.   Matthew 7:21

 WHAT IF I havenít met Godís requirement for entering in?

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.   Matthew 7:22-23

What is the requirement?

And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.   I John 5:11-12

WHAT IF I accept Godís gift of His Son, Jesus Christ?

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.   Ephesians 2:8-9

I am freed from judgment

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.   John 5:24

I am made alive

And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.   John 6:40

WHAT IF I I donít accept Godís free gift in His Son, Jesus Christ?

I am rejected of God now and eternally.

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.   John 3:36

I am the eternal prisoner of Hell because I rejected Jesus Christ, who died to save me from Hell.

But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.   Luke 12:5

The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:   II Peter 2:9

WHAT IF I accept the gift of eternal life available only in Jesus Christ right now?

 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. Acts 16:31

 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.   Romans 10:13

 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.   John 6:37

 YOU CAN enter into saving faith right now?

 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.   John 10:9

 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:   John 1:12

 Based on the authority of these Scriptures, just think, WHAT IF you received Christ today? Just think, WHAT IF you donít?
