Words matter. They invoke feelings. What feelings do these two words invoke in you? Fear, urgency, force?
In terms of what motivates us, they may be two of the most powerful words in our language.
“….or else” is always tied to a consequence.
There are all levels of consequences. And we sort through them based on two criteria, fear of loss and anticipation of gain.
There IS one ultimate “….or else”. And why? Because the consequence is where you and I will spend eternity.
Whether we like it or not, you and I are going to live forever. That is not the issue. The issue…. is ‘where’?
Because there are only two possible choices, it may be the single most sobering “….or else” anyone has ever been given the opportunity to consider.
Sobering? Yes. And why? Because of its import.
If you haven’t already, let me implore you to accept this greatest of all gifts….eternity with your Creator…. NOW! While you can?
OH! REALLY,? YES
