"I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am He, you will indeed die in your sins." (John 8:24)
Jesus simply says how it is.
Each choice takes us down the road of our choosing.
Option 1, being with someone who loves us more than ANYONE ever will and will last forever. Option 2, not be with that person, not only now but forever.
I can't believe it took me so long to choose the first option, but such was my path.
How about you? What option have you chosen?
He's right there with us when we're ready. Even if we feel as lonely as we've ever been, He's there. Talk to Him, ask if He's there, and find out for yourself.
