I was reading the story of a railway switch-man who testified that he swung his lantern at the crossing as an automobile sped toward a fast train.

In spite of the warning, the car sped on & the driver was killed. The switch-man was acquitted. He later confided to a friend that he had no light in his lantern.

What an awful guilt would be upon me if I didn’t give you a fair warning of 3 things.

First, a man must die: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Heb. 9:27). Thousands die daily & if our Savior tarries, all must die.

Second, a man must meet God: “So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God” (Rom. 14:12). Both the saint & sinner must stand at the judgment & face God.

Third, a man must be born again to see Heaven. There is only one hope for Heaven & that is found in Jesus Christ.

To sum up, Christ died for you! He took your place upon the cross! He paid the penalty for your sin! He offers you salvation through His death on the cross.

What must you do? Receive Him as Savior. “Most certainly, I tell you, he who believes in me has eternal life” (John 6:47).
