One Opportunity

YOLO has become a phrase used in our society to justify sinful, sketchy, or reckless behavior. Sure, we only live once, but what does that mean? If we only have one life to live, shouldn’t we live our best life? But what exactly does it mean to live our best life? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he opens our eyes to the hard truth of only living once in his message, One Opportunity.

You Only Live Once

YOLO has been the excuse of many people. We only have one life to live, so live it up, but is that what we’re meant to do with our only life we have to live.

27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment,

Hebrews 9:27

We have one opportunity to be saved. Christ died so that we could have new life and have it abundantly. This life is our only chance to accept and receive salvation. We get so busy storing up treasure for ourselves on earth, forgetting about eternity. This earth and everything in it won’t last forever, but eternity will be forever.

Listen to me, you who know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law;
fear not the reproach of man, nor be dismayed at their revilings. For the moth will eat them up like a garment, and the worm will eat them like wool, but my righteousness will be forever, and my salvation to all generations.

Isaiah 51:7-8

19 Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew 6:19-21

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;

2 Corinthians 5:17-18

Therefore, take this one opportunity to build up treasure in eternity. Take this opportunity to live your life for Christ so that you can reap the rewards of salvation instead of the consequences of rejecting Christ. Take YOLO as more than a way to sin, but as a way to store up treasure in eternity.

16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him. 18 Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because He has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

John 3:16-18
