Ever wonder what it takes to get to Heaven? The Bible tells us that God loves us and wants for us to live with Him in Heaven. But Heaven is a perfect place and God can not allow sin into Heaven or there would be sickness, disease,and death in Heaven just like there is on earth. This is where God had a problem. He loves us but He hates our sin because it seperates us from Him. This sin must be paid for in order for us to be able to go to Heaven and live with God. So here is what God did.

Are you running from God?
The Bible tells us that we are in a spiritual warfare. There are two sides fighting for your soul and your life. Satan does not want you to accept Christ as your personal saviour, so he will do what ever he can to stop you. Once you are a Christian Satan will try to stop you from ever telling anyone else how they can go to Heaven when they die. How your life turns out is up to you by the choices that you make. Every time you make a decision, it will please either God or Satan. Do you help your neighbor? Will you go to church this week? Will you turn in that money you found or keep it? Will you help your parents around the house? The choices are up to you.
Dead at 17 by John Berrio
It doesn't matter how the accident happened. I was goofing off - going too fast, taking crazy chances. But I was enjoying my freedom and having fun. The last thing I remember was passing an old lady who seemed to be going awfully slow. I heard a crash and felt a terrific jolt. Glass and steel flew everywhere. My whole body seemed to be turning inside out. I heard myself scream.
Suddenly, I awakened. It was very quiet. A police officer was standing over me. I saw a doctor. My body was mangled. I was saturated with blood. Pieces of jagged glass were sticking out all over. Strange that I couldn't feel anything. Hey, don't pull that sheet over my head. I can't be dead. I'm only 17. I've got a date tonight. I'm supposed to have a wonderful life ahead of me. I haven't lived yet. I can't be dead.
Later I was placed in a drawer. My folks came to identify me. Why did they have to see me like this? Why did I have to look at Mom's eyes when she faced the most terrible ordeal of her life? Dad suddenly looked very old. He told the man in charge, "Yes, he's our son."
The funeral was weird, I saw all my relatives and friends walk toward the casket. They looked at me with the saddest eyes I've ever seen. Some of my buddies were crying. A few of the girls touched my hand and sobbed as they walked by.
Please, somebody - wake me up! Get me out of here. I can't bear to see Mom and Dad in such pain. My grandparents are so weak from grief they can barely walk. My brother and sister are like zombies. They move like robots. In a daze. Everybody. No one can believe this. I can't believe it, either.
Please, don't bury me! I'm not dead! I have a lot of living to do! I want to laugh and run again. I want to sing and dance. Please don't put me in the ground! I promise if you give me just one more chance, God, I'll be the most careful driver in the whole world. All I want is one more chance. Please, God, I'm only 17.
