The Breath You Are Taking.
How you use it determines where you will spend eternity.
"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." 1 John 2:16
The breath you are taking, the next breath you will take, as with every breath you have taken is a gift from God. You might disagree. Fine. You can jump out of a plane without a parachute with the opinion that there is no gravity. As long as you are falling you are OK. But eventually you are going to meet an object. At that 'moment' your opinion will not count. Eventually you will take your last breath. At that 'moment' you are going to meet an "Object," i.e., your opinion will not count. God is giving you your next breath that you might thank Him for it. What you are doing with it will determine where you will spend eternity. Thank Him for it and spend eternity with Him or use it for your "self" as you think upon and/or satisfy your carnal desires ("lusts") of the 'moment' that the world, i.e., the current situation and/or people are stimulating and spend eternity with the rest of the world in the lake of fire that is never quenched.
"[E]very one of us shall give account of himself to God." Romans 14:12
"For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Matthew 16:26
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." James 1:17
Your next breath you take is a gift from God. Use it wisely. Where you spend eternity depends upon it.
