The safety net

To convert to Jesus is like a person that is walking on a line far up above the ground (e.g. a tightrope walker in a circus), and then chooses to use a safety net underneath. Without the net, a fall will be a disaster. With the safety net underneath, the person will not get hurt in the case of a slip and fall, but will be saved by the net. And it is just a matter of getting up and starting over again.

Jesus is that safety net and nothing can ever break the strength of that net.


But where the sin abounded, grace abounded much more. (Romans. 5, 20)

There is therefore no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. (Romans. 8, 1)

But without the net, without Jesus; every sin and mistake a person makes, will have to be accounted for at the Day of Judgment; the day God judges all mankind. The outcome will be eternal separation from the love of God and from His kingdom, according to the Bible. Jesus declared;

I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the Day of Judgment. (Matthew 12, 36)

And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. (Hebrews 4, 13)

He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him. (John 3, 36)

And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life. (Matthew 25, 46)
