The Choice

When we think life's over here,
Endless ears have just begun--
Years of joy or agony.
Welcomed home or jailed in chains.
Life that's full or death that burns.
All restored or left to rot.

This the choice God offers you:
Christ and all, or self and loss.

 For the compensation due sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6:23, Lexham English Bible)

Unfortunately, many people make the choice by default, trying not to choose.
