“Life is a journey; it has a beginning and an end. Right from birth, you begin the journey and once you begin, you must know that it will come to an end. However, the mystery of the journey of life is that you do not know when it will end.”
The above statement was contained in a sermon preached by the Evangelism Ministry Director of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Dr. Amos Jimmy Markin, during the opening of the “Juaboso for Christ” crusade yesterday at the Juaboso Town Park.
According to Apostle Dr. Markin, since life is a journey, every human being must accept the fact that it will surely come to an end.
“It does not matter how it ends, whether, through an accident, sickness leading to death or through the rapture of the saints, every life on earth will end,” he said.
The Evangelism Director cautioned that the state in which one dies can never be reversed and remains. “Whether you died a believer or an unbeliever, you cannot change your status after death,” he warned.
He, therefore, urged humankind to make a concrete decision on how they would like to end their life journey. He stressed that there is no middle ground in the issue of heaven and hell.
“You are either blessed or cursed, a child of God or the devil, going to heaven or hell; there is no middle ground,” he said.
Apostle Dr. Jimmy Markin said that every human has to decide which side to be on.
Using the story of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37 to elaborate his assertion, he said that on the journey of life, human beings are bound to be attacked by the devil, who only seeks to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10).
He said that, like the Good Samaritan, Jesus came to fully pay the price for the sins of humanity and redeem them from the attacks of the evil one.
The Evangelism Director, therefore, called on every human being to accept Christ into their lives as Lord and personal Saviour, especially since they do not know when their journey would end.
“This is not about emotions; it is a decision you must make; your destiny is in your own hands,” he charged.
The “Juaboso for Christ” crusade, which is being jointly organised by the Sefwi Juaboso Area and the Evangelism Ministry of The Church of Pentecost, is under the theme: “Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the World.”
