New location

99 Hits

Think a minute…A Bank in New York City had some flowers sent to another bank that had moved to a new building.

But there was a mix-up at the flower shop, and the card that was sent read: “With our deepest sympathy.”

The florist was so embarrassed and apologized for her mix-up.

But she felt even worse when she realized that the card to the bank was sent instead to a funeral.

This card read: “Congratulations on your new location!” You can imagine the surprise of the dead person’s family when they read that card!

All joking aside. You know that’s actually an accurate way to describe what happens when we die. While we’re alive on this earth, our body is just our temporary house.

Doctors say that after we reach the age of about 20 years old, our body begins to deteriorate and slowly die.

Our hair turning gray and thin, wrinkles in our skin, and many other changes in our body are all signs that our aging house is falling down.

No one escapes this fact of life!

However, we have a soul that never dies, so when our body dies we just change locations. And our next location is not just for 70 years, it’s our permanent home—forever.

Jesus Christ said that there are only 2 locations that we can live in after we die: heaven or hell. Fortunately, the choice is ours to make now while we’re still in this temporary location.

 If we choose heaven, then all we need to do is ask Jesus for His gift of forgiveness for living our own way.

Then, ask Him to take charge of our new life so we can start living His right way every day for the rest of our life in this location, as well as forever with Him in our permanent location.

So if your life ended today, do you know where you would relocate? Just Think a Minute…
