1. Know what you want;
2. Know how to get it;
3. Invest for long-term returns!
1. Know what you want:
If you listen to a man who thinks he has evolved from an ape, you'll willingly allow yourself to be led by the blind & you will, for want of a better word, end up in a ditch!
If God can create at all, he can communicate with his creation in the most certain way - in writing! And he has - in one book - the Old King James Bible 1611 printing including the Apocrypha - still with us after 400 years.
To know what you want, you have to know why God created you - to live with him forever in Christ, or not! Then, having decided this issue, you can proceed in life as a Christian or as an anti-christ! There are only 2 groups, only 1 division between men!
2. Know how to get it:
God tells us in the most certain way that whoever has the Son, has life & whoever doesn't have the Son has not life, but the wrath of God abides upon him forever!
If you ignore God telling us about himself & what he is doing, where are you going to get this knowledge? From wolves dressed in sheep's clothing?
3. Invest for long-term returns! This is a long-term gain worth investing in (& why):
(John 3:16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
The failure to so invest into God’s plan does not bare contemplation: (Matthew 25:46) And these shall go away into everlasting punishment...
