Neglect, the Super Thief

Recently in the dentist's office I saw a sign on the wall that said: "NEGLECT YOUR TEETH AND THEY WILL GO AWAY." It is bad to lose your teeth because of neglect, but it is far worse to lose your soul and be forever lost through neglect. To be lost means that you cannot go to heaven where the Lord Jesus has gone. God's Word tells us that, "ALL have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Rom. 3:2323For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23). And the Lord Jesus said, "Whither I go, ye cannot come." John 8:2222Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come. (John 8:22).
But how wonderful it is to read also in the Bible: "Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus." Rom. 3:2424Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: (Romans 3:24).
In Rom. 4:2525Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification. (Romans 4:25) the Bible also tells us that the Lord Jesus "was delivered for our offenses, and was raised again for our justification," and in Heb. 2:33How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; (Hebrews 2:3) we read, "How shall we escape, if we NEGLECT so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard Him."
Oh, do not NEGLECT the most important thing in your life. Come to the precious Lord Jesus Christ and let Him be your Savior. There is no other Savior! Do not let NEGLECT steal everlasting blessing from you.
