Celebrity chef Anthony Sedlak dead at 29

The headline reads, "Celebrity chef Anthony Sedlak dead at 29".

What a stark reminder that no one should put off making a decision for Christ because we have no idea how much time we have.
What a tragedy for a man this young to die so suddenly and unexpecteldy.  It is very sad to be sure.  Certainly no one expected it - no one saw this coming.

The big question I have is, Was he ready to meet God?  Only he and God know for sure.  I certainly have no idea.  I never heard his name until I saw the awful headline today.

What about you? Are you ready to meet God?  How much time do you have?  What will tomorrow's headline be?

If you are not 100% sure you are going to heaven when this life is over, you need to make sure today.  The Bible gives us God's simple plan for salvation.  There is only one way to heaven, and that is through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  Please take the time to read the following from God's Word.

God loves you and wants you to be saved.

John 3:16 says, 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.

There is only one way to heaven and that is through the Saviour Jesus Christ.

John 14:6 says, Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

The Bible Way to Heaven:

1. Recognize your condition.
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: (Romans 3:10)
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)

None of us is good enough to go to Heaven on our own merit. Because we are sinners, no matter how much good we do, we always fall short.

2. Realize the penalty for sin.
For the wages of sin is death... (Romans 6:23a)
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (Rev 20:14)

There is punishment for sin. The penalty for our sin is eternal death in a place called Hell.

3. Believe Christ died for you.
Christ showed His great love for us when He died on the cross to pay our sin debt.But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
Jesus, who never sinned, took our sin on himself, that we might be saved.For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (2 Cor 5:21)

4. Trust Christ alone as your Saviour.
...but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23b)

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)
For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. (1 Cor 3:11)
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9-10)
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)

Everlasting life is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who call upon Him by faith.

Let me help you word a prayer. (Realize that what saves is your faith in Jesus Christ, not saying mere words.)

Dear Jesus, I know I’m a sinner, and I cannot save myself. Please forgive my sins, come into my heart and save my soul from Hell. I’m trusting you alone to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank you for saving me, Jesus. Amen.

Please accept Christ as your Saviour today. Don’t delay. We’re not guaranteed a tomorrow.

God Bless You for taking time to read this Gospel message.
