You will lose it all
It does not matter how many riches you accumulate, how many prizes you win or how famous you are, the moment you die you will lose it all. Jesus said:” 36“For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? 37“For what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 38“For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:36-38.
“The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.” 1 John 2:17.
The hope that we have in Jesus is eternal life, but only those who do the will of God, will have eternal life, the rest will endure eternal punishment in damnation.
What is the will of God? What must we do to have eternal life? Obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. Repent, turn from sin, stop sinning, be baptized in water for the forgiveness of your sin. Turn to Jesus, obey His words, His commands as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Seek Him with all your heart in prayer, ask Him and He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit. He will give of His Spirit to be in you and with you to teach and guide you into all truth, righteousness and doing His will. If you obey Him and stay with Him, you will live, even when you die, you will live for ever.
Do you have the Hope of Eternal Life? Are you doing the will of God?
May Jesus bless you.
