What would be the point

If we were to die for eternity,

And have no consciousness whatsoever

Where we will not hear or ever see?

What would be the point

To procreate yet all will die,

If there’s no life for eternity

And all has been just one big lie?

What would be the point

In having faith in the Lord,

If there’s no eternal home

And where on earth treasure is stored?

If life is like a pencil

Then it’s either blunt or has a point,

It can rub off on all things negative

Or sharpen its viewpoint.

Because if we merely are erased

Just when our story has been written,

Then what would be the point

If in some coffin we are hidden?

There would not be a point

If we are smeared or erased,

Only to face a dull eternity

That does not lead to brighter days.

A point to consider

Is why was Jesus crucified,

If eternal life does not exist

And if we merely were to die?

The point of the matter is

That when we die we shall arise

To give account to our holy God

Since our soul remains alive.

When we trust in the Lord

Although mistakes happen in our life,

Our name is written in His Book

To forever be alive.
