100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #66 | with Daniel Whyte III
SCRIPTURE — Matthew 7:13-14: “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
Today, by the grace of God, I want to share with you a brief, but important, message titled IF YOU WERE TO DIE TODAY, WHERE WOULD YOU GO — HEAVEN OR HELL? I have asked many people this very question down through the years. Some people answered that they were sure they would go to Heaven when they died. Others were not so sure that they were going to Heaven. And some people had no idea where they were going at all.
The passage which we just read in Matthew 7:13-14 clearly speaks of two roads which lead to two different destinations. The wide and broad road leads to “destruction”, or eternal damnation in Hell after you die. The straight and narrow road leads to “life everlasting” with God in Heaven after you die. The people who are on these roads and headed to these destinations are not on their way by happenstance. They had to choose between these two possibilities.
Everyone in this world has to make this choice as to where they will go when they die — they can either walk the straight and narrow road to Heaven or the wide and broad road to Hell. Today, I want to pose this very important question to you: if YOU were to die today, where would you go — Heaven or Hell?
1. First of all, I want you to understand that this is a question of crucial importance.
2. Second, today, I want you to look at the two destinations involved in this decision — Heaven and Hell.
3. Third, today, I want you to know that you have the power to decide where you will spend eternity.
