Unfortunately, in our world, we often hear of times when people are mistreated, left out, and discriminated against. Blacks in America were treated as inferior during the Jim Crow Era in the South. Japanese-Americans were demonized and mistreated during World War II. Black Africans suffered under apartheid laws for many years in South Africa. Native Americans were enslaved and treated as inferior by the Spanish who came to the new world. And who can forget how horrifically the Jews were treated by the Nazis?

Even though these major issues have been resolved for the most part, people are still left out and discriminated against today. School children are often bullied because of how they look. People are rejected and overlooked because they weren’t born on the right side of the tracks. Companies are often sued because of racism, sexism or ageism.

Unfortunately, our world is oftentimes not a very inclusive place. But did you know that there is a place where everybody is welcome. This place is called Heaven. In Luke 14, Jesus Christ told a story that is an illustration of God’s invitation to heaven. Once everything for a great feast was ready, the Master of the banquet told his servants, “Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.”

Jesus Christ wants everyone to come in to Heaven. Jesus does not leave out those who are poor, or sick, or addicted to drugs. Jesus does not leave out those who were born into poverty, or those of a certain race, culture, or economic status. Jesus Christ invites everybody to go to Heaven.

Do you want to accept Jesus’ invitation to go to Heaven? It will only take a minute to make this important decision. If you want to do this right now, allow me to show you how you can accept Jesus’ invitation to go to Heaven.

No one ever really dies. That statement may sound strange to you considering that we hear about death every day. Television news reports are almost a constant stream of death-related stories. You can’t look at the internet without hearing about death. Even much of our entertainment — movies, TV dramas, and books — center around death in some way.

Each week, we hear about scores of people being killed in suicide bombings in Iraq or Nigeria. We hear about people dying from floods and famine. We are shocked by random shootings that strip life from people who are going about their business with no thought that they would die that day. We are stunned by the news that someone who appeared to have it all decides to end their life by committing suicide. And then there are the deaths that hit close to home — when a friend, family member, or a uniformed military officer calls or comes by to tell us that someone we know and love has died.

When we really think about it, though, death seems strange and out of place in this world. It unnerves us that someone can be here today — full of life, vitality, and energy — and gone tomorrow. Saint Nicolai of the Serbian Orthodox Church expressed this feeling when he wrote the following: “Death is not natural; rather it is unnatural. Death is not from nature; rather it is against nature. All of nature cries out, ‘I do not know death! I do not wish death! I am afraid of death! I strive against death!’ Death is an uninvited stranger.”

As awful as death is to us, the truth is that those who die are not forever extinguished from existence. They simply pass from this life to another realm of life — a place where they still exist and are just as real, but a place where people in this world cannot see them. The Bible sheds light on this invisible — or spirit — realm. Continue Reading…
