Whether it is slam-dunk or soft-dunk, it cannot miss the light-blue recycle bag. The recycle law has been passed and implemented. It has become part of our system. The cans and bottles of assorted sodas and juices will soon end in recycle. The high nutrient food we eat both at home and in the classy restaurant end up in sewage recycle. You do not need to ask me how, because, I believe you know. Those expensive dresses will eventually go down the way of recycle. They will end up in the recycle of garbage, processed and then separated according to their chemical composition. These will be taken to different places for further processing.
Do you realize that leaders who enacted the law of recycle on earth will soon be recycled? The subjects, I mean, the citizens upon whom the law was imposed will also face recycle. The Bible told us in the Book of Genesis 2:7 that “the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” When a man dies, two things will happen: the body will be returned (recycle) into dust and the spirit that God gave us at the beginning will return (recycle) to God for further separation as a result of His judgment. “The dust returns to the ground it came from and the spirit returns to God who gave it”. Ecclesiastes 12:7) No matter how beautiful, no matter how wealthy, no matter how influential we might have been, whatever our qualification or achievement might have been, it will come to a point after our death that nobody will like to accommodate us. First of all, the body will be taken to the funeral home, from funeral home to the burial ground or where it will be burnt into ashes. Whatever method we employ to dispose the dead body, the dust will surely return to dust.
We may not be able to do anything with the recycle of our body because it automatically goes to where it came from. But we can lay the path that our soul will follow after our death while we are still living. The choice is before you today. Which path do you want your soul to follow after your death? Is it the pathway to eternal heaven, where there is joy and peace, in the bosom of Abraham, in the presence of the Mighty King? Or is it the pathway to eternal doom in the Hell Fire, where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth, in the exclusive home prepared for Satan?
Great is the love that made the Mighty King to set aside His Glory, came into the earth, and offered Himself as a living sacrifice for you. Great is the price He paid for your salvation with His precious blood. Must this be in VAIN? “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.” (John 3:16) “The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ.” Romans 6:23) Choose, this day, the pathway for the recycle of your soul. Do you want your soul to be soft-patted into that everlasting joy in heaven, the place of rest and peace or to be slam-dunked into the Hell Fire, the place of anguish and sorrow? When you toss that empty can of soda into the recycle bin, think of the path you are creating for your soul to follow after your death! May God endow you with wisdom of making a right choice, Amen.
