And the fact is, we do not know when we will die. It might be today. It might be tomorrow. It might be in ten years. Our death might come to us totally unexpected, by a heart attack, by an accident, or by some other means. Or, we might get advance notice that we are going to die by a slowly-progressing disease. But however death comes to us, expected or unexpected, it ends all further opportunity to be forgiven by Jesus Christ. Those who die unforgiven will end up in hell forever. Therefore, it is very important to settle the matter at once. Let me re-quote Torrey's last two sentences given above: Yes, there is a more wonderful joy in knowing that our sins are all forgiven than there is in anything that this world has to give. And we get this forgiveness of sin by simply believing in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Will you believe in Him right now? Here is what it says in Romans 10:9, 10: "If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Romans 10:13 says this: "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Call on Jesus Christ now for salvation and forgiveness by telling him that you admit your need of these things and that you are asking him for them. He will give you these blessings the moment you ask Him for them.
