Jesus – Don’t Leave This World Without Him

I recently observed a bumper sticker that caught my attention. It read:

JESUS – DON’T LEAVE THIS WORLD WITHOUT HIM

After a light moment and a chuckle, the gravity of the statement captured my thoughts. What a chilling thing to contemplate! The scriptures speak to the unenviable situation of passing from this life without being saved. To enter eternity without a personal relationship with Jesus as Savior is tragedy without remedy.

Solomon speaks of such a situation, “Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy (Pro.6:15).”

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6).”  Paul tells us in Acts 4:12, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven, whereby we must be saved.” Paul writes these words to the Corinthian Church, “For other foundation can no man lay than is laid, which is Jesus Christ (1 Co. 3:11).” 

In the later days of His ministry, Jesus gave an account of a man that died and went to hell. In torment, he pleaded for a beggar, who had died and gone to heaven, to be allowed to dip his finger in water and cool his tongue, because he was torment in the flames. Luke records these words from Jesus to the man, “…between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come thence (Luke 16:26).”
