The Chaplains Corner

The Chaplains Corner

Guest blogger, Chaplain Paul, is one of the most effective chaplains in America today. He is an emergency responder to every situation.

Hey, this is the Chaplain again.

A few days ago a lady told me she had just seen the doctor and he said, "I'm sorry, it's terminal." This past week I have ministered to three families dealing with the death of a loved one, all three of them younger than me.

Earthly life for every one of us is terminal. That's why I'm glad this earthly life is not all there is. Every one of us is created by God as an eternal being. We will live forever somewhere. The Bible makes that very plain.

The question is - where?

In the Old Testament book of Job there is a strange question; 'Have you seen the doors of death?' (Job 38:17) Not the 'door of death', but the 'doors' - plural. And in the New Testament Jesus talked about a wide door and a narrow door both leading into eternity. (Mat. 7:13)

May I ask you a question, which door are you headed for? Which road are you on? Like it or not, you are on one of those two roads. You are headed for one or the other of those two doors. The Bible teaches that at death we reach the end of our earthly road and the door opens. The door to heaven; or the door to hell. And you will live eternally in one of those destinations.

Some of you hearing (reading) this are headed for the wrong door. The good news is - God allows U-turns. That's what salvation is all about.
