ONE-WAY TICKET TO ETERNITY
A Short Sketch - by Sue Seaman (c)1998, 2008
The scene: A railway station at the onset of a journey.
The players: A man - A Youth - A Woman - and.. you?
Man sitting on train reading newspaper:
Youth rushing to board the train as it departs:
Woman at ticket office:
God sent Jesus to this earth with the sole intention of redeeming man from his sin.
Now the work is done. Jesus died on the cross, bore the penalty for all sin and rose again from the grave. He has defeated death and has removed the power that death had over us.
But do you believe Him? Will you believe Him?
God gives us the chance to either accept what He is offering or reject. We only have
two real choices.
Either we believe Him or we don't. There is no middle line.
So many try to 'sit on the fence' hoping that by not making a decision they will be okay.
But to not accept is to reject.
God's word says that we cannot serve God and mammon (false gods). In other words a decision has to be made.
Jesus has aleady paid the price for tickets for all who will believe, by the shedding of
his precious blood.
Those who believe, will receive their 'ticket' to eternal life through faith in Him.
Those who won't, will themselves one day have to pay the price for their sin.
Now it is left to us to decide.
Will we accept and receive or reject and decline.
That's the choice.
if we want it.
