Fire Insurance

So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. Revelation 3:16

I heard this term 'fire insurance' from Bible teacher Joyce Meyer so it is not my original idea. What is Fire Insurance? Not the kind you buy for your property but the kind to insure you go to heaven, not hell. Are you sure if you were to 'check out' , get beamed up, or whatever other term people use for dying, you would in fact be in heaven with Jesus?

Often around this time of year scary movies come out, Halloween costumes and total Halloween stores spring up. I heard that Halloween was second only to Christmas in the way people decorate. Parents may innocently dress their toddler in a devil outfit carrying a pitchfork. Somehow it is so cute and innocent but Hell is a real place no matter how much agnostics or atheists want to declare otherwise. To try to scream sermons at people from street corners or pulpits about "turn or burn" is sometimes not the best method for winning people to the Lord. Basically we need to proclaim the message of salvation and ask who really is on the throne of your heart? Is Jesus or are you? Have you asked Jesus to be Lord of your life?

Now is the day of salvation. Now is the day to make sure you have 'fire insurance'.

PRAYER: I love you Lord. I need you in my life every day and not just one hour on Sunday. Forgive me for ignoring that tug on my heart to do something more. In Jesus' name. Amen.
