Man....what a week for celebrities all over the world. Some known....some not so known. Some actors, some singers but one thing they all have in common is that they have all past away this past week.

Nobody wants to lose a loved one but we all have to know that one day everyones time on this earth will end because as surely as we live.....we will die. That doesn't make it any easier I suppose. Just ask the person whose lost a child, a husband, a parent, etc.

The above named people have achieved what many of us wouldn't mind having like celebrity status and riches. All of that is fine and dandy and if given the opportunity I would love to have both while I'm on this earth but our ultimate goal should be getting it right so that we can be sure that we will spend eternity basking in the presence of our God.

So here's how to do it. I know there's lots of controversy over what it means to be "saved" so here's what the Word has to say about that:

Romans 10:9
NIV: That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Amplified: Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
