I didn't sign up for the Hyner Challenge, and I am now wishing I had. All of the spots are filled, but if the race organizers would like to let me fill a spare one, I would love to participate. Hint, hint :)
We celebrated Resurrection Sunday yesterday. Christ is Risen! He is Risen, indeed! I really try to stress to folks that everyone gets eternal life. It just depends WHERE you are going to spend it. If you recognize Jesus Christ as fully man and fully God, ask Him to forgive you of your sins and, accept that he gave His Life as a sacrifice to fully redeem you, then you will spend eternity in Heaven. If you do not, you will spend it in Hell. Eternal life in heaven is a free gift, it can not be bought or earned.
Questions? Here are answers based on scripture.
Ephesians 2:8-10New International Version (NIV)
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
