Why Worry?

Holy Week (Lenten Season and Easter) is approaching. What are your plans for next week? By the way, what is the significance of this season to you? In the meantime, I want to share this (an email I got some time ago) with you, friends...
There are only two things in life to worry about:

Whether you are well
or whether you are sick.

If you are well,

then there is nothing to worry about.

But if you are sick,

there are only two things to worry about:

Whether you are going to get well

or whether you are going to die.

If you get well,

then there is nothing to worry about.

But if you die,

there are only two things to worry about:

Whether you are going to go to heaven
or whether you are going to go to hell.

If you'll go to heaven,

then you have nothing to worry about.

But if you'll go to hell,

then you should be worried!

But instead of worrying,
go to the Bible so you'll know
how you can be sure of Heaven!

*Do not cry if the Sun sets at the end of the day,
because the tears will not let you enjoy the beauty of the Stars.

hmmmmmmm.....more than the fear of hell, i'd like to search the answers for a joyous life in the bible coz Jesus is the only way to the path of enlightenment resulting to peace, joy and prosperity in this life and the ultimate bonus, assurance of entering into the Lord's presence coz he already purchased the ticket for me when He ransomed me from my sins on the cross. Indeed, no one comes to the Father except through and by the Lord Jesus Christ...

The kingdom starts here though, and thank God for that...

Ayan, buti post ka, maganda yang masunuring bata...wek wek wek...:)

ei ate-pluma! As far as I understand this cartoonish piece, it's written in the context of the antidote to worry. It says: why worry about life, being sick, dying, even hell, when we can go to the Bible (the blueprint for life) so we can be sure of Heaven! AMEN, as you said, thank GOD the kingdom of Heaven begins in this life! :)
Some gems in His Word...
Jesus tells us about the WAY: "I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." (John 14:6)
And the abundant life: "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." (John 10:10b)

We enter in a relationship with Him through faith, not fear: "And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him." (Hebrews 11:6)
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--not by works, so that no one can boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)

And the motivation for obedience is love, knowing that He loves us so He has the best for us: "If you love Me, you will obey what I command." (John 14:15)

Heaven and hell is such a reality. I'm just glad we're sure of our destiny once we leave this life on earth. PTL for that!

Ok itong post mo. May animated pictures pa. :-)

Have a blessed week, Scanns. Nandito na ako sa Switzerland. Ayun, jet lag. Gising sa madaling araw (like right now) and tulog sa hapon. :-)

God bless!

scanns said...

Hi Jayred! Amen, it's a reality! Indeed, praise God we're sure of our eternal destiny! Thanks, glad you liked the post.. :)

It's good you really enjoyed your vacation inspite of the summer heat, and nakabalik ka na dyan safely & in good health. Hope you get over your jet lag & maayos na ang tulog mo soon! Balik ka lang dito pag gising ka ulit sa madaling araw, hehe.. :) See you! All of God's blessings to you too!
