...many people today don’t feel that they should have any consequences for their choices in this life. Their rebellion against God is one of moral superiority; they think they are good enough to be rewarded with a Heaven-like eternal life, but seemingly one in which God does not have any part.
When we accept Christ as our Savior, and trust in God's Word, we have the assurance of eternal life when we leave this one behind.
We cannot follow in the footsteps of Christ if we only read and hear the Bible. We must apply God's Word in our lives so that we may walk in the path of righteousness, instead of being led down paths of deception.
Through our faith and knowledge in our Heavenly Father, and in our Savior Jesus Christ, we receive not only eternal life, but everything we need to live a godly life here on Earth. We are called to be more than we were, and we receive the strength to do so, when we accept Christ as our Savior.

God willingly gave His only Son as a sacrifice in exchange for our salvation, to reconcile us to Himself. There is no good thing He will withhold from those who love Him. God is with us through our troubles and heartaches and able to deliver us from them all.
