Have you seen this on the back of a van while driving down the road, stopped at a stoplight or parked in a parking lot?  Did you figure out what it means? 
 


  

If not, you are not alone… about ½ the people who respond to the message, do not know what it means.  Notice that the “E” is red and read it out load: “R U red – E”?  Are you ready

At this point, you may be saying “so, what does that mean?!?!”  It means, are you ready to meet your maker?  Are you ready to stand before the Just Judge of the universe and give an account of your life? 

 

There is an old saying that there are two things which are certain in this life… death and taxes.  This message is not about taxes but it is related to the subject of death.  We know that out of 10 people born on this earth, 10 of them will die.   We don’t know how or when, but we know they will die at some point in time.  So, when your time is up, are you ready? 


What do you think happens when a person dies?

The Bible makes it clear that “…it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,” (Hebrews 9:27) and “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.” (II Corinthians 5:10)  Those who are righteous in God’s eyes will live forever in heaven.  Those who aren’t will be punished forever because God will cast them into hell – “Then He will also say to those on His left, Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;” (Matthew 25:41).  So, what do you think will happen when you die? Why should God let you into heaven?  Have you broken God’s law?  If you’ve ever told a lie, looked at a person with lust, stolen anything, disobeyed your parents or used the Lord’s name in vain, you have sinned (sin is transgression of God’s law).  “Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.” (I John 3:4)  Roman’s 3:10 & 3:23 tell us “THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE;” and “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” Since all of us have sinned and are guilty of breaking God’s moral Law, if we are to have eternal life, we must rely on a righteousness outside of ourselves.

 

God made a way to reconcile sinful people to Himself.

He sent His only begotten Son to die in the place of sinners paying the penalty sinners owe for transgressing His law.  Then God raised Jesus from the dead 3 days later, showing that He accepted the sacrifice of Jesus on behalf of sinners.  “He made Him Who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” – (II Corinthians 5:21).  Jesus says in John 14:6 “… I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”  In Matthew 4:17 He tells us “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”  Repent means to turn from our sins.  Christians still sin, but our desire is to stop sinning and obey God.  Jesus is the Creator, Lord and Master and is the only One deserving of our praise and worship.  Will you bow to His Lordship today?  “But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.  God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:23&24)

 

Repent and trust in Christ Jesus

Jesus commands all everywhere to repent and believe in Him.  Repent means to turn from all known sins out of a heart – attitude of desiring to please God.  To believe in Jesus, according to the definition of the word from the original language, is to trust in, rely on and cling to Jesus.  There is no one else who can save you… there is no one else who can help Jesus save you… Jesus is the only way to heaven.  There are no works that you can do to earn eternal life: “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy, he saved us, by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost;” (Titus 3:5).  He alone can save you from your sins and the wrath of God that will cast you into hell.  “Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.” (Acts 17:30&31).  Jesus is coming back to take His people to heaven and to destroy those who do not worship, serve and obey Him.  “…when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.  These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes to be glorified in His saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed—for our testimony to you was believed.” (II Thessalonians 1:7-10).  Will you begin trusting Jesus today?  Will you love and serve the Creator–God Who gives us life and breath and all good things?  Please, repent of your sins and trust in Christ Jesus.  Don’t put it off, but begin doing it today.  “We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.”  (II Corinthians 5:20)
