My Pick Pocket Experience (4) - Back it up!

Thanks for the prayers, calls and concerns shown to me during and after the period I lost my phone. It really shows how much you care about me. God bless you all! 
.
Lastly on the experience I've shared so far, this very one pierced my heart and I am asking God for grace to adhere to it and I pray everyone will take this lesson as a word from God and not from the writer. 
.
The greatest regret I had when I was dispossessed of my phone was the failure to back up all my data. The pictures and musics did not really pained me, at worst I can get them or re-download them again but those write ups He gave me insight to write which cannot be recovered got into my heart. 
.
Always learn to back up your data. 
.
But the important lesson the Holy Spirit gave me which I want you to pay attention to, please if there's anything you will forget in life, please don't forget to BACK UP YOUR LIFE. 
.
What does it mean? 
.
You can lose all your money, properties, loved ones or investment in life, in fact, you can lose your beautiful and flawless skin, including your breathe but your spirit and soul will not die but return to God who created it. 
.
What will it profit you that you gained the whole world and lose your soul in hell? There's no purgatory, soul sleeping or those erroneous teachings about the afterlife, they do not exist. After death comes judgment (Heb. 9:27).
.
Death is not a termination of life, it's a change of state and a transition to eternity. 
.
Becoming religious (Buddhism, Islam, Religious Christians, Cult, Occult) does not guarantee that you are backed up for eternity. The only way to BACK UP YOUR LIFE is to give back your life (spirit and soul) to God through Jesus Christ. 
.
Do you think all there is to become a Christian is just by being religious, worldly and carnal? You are not a Christian by going to church, you are a Christian because you are living your life like Christ. If you are not dead to the rudiments of this world and your life is hidden in Christ, your life is not backed up for eternity. 
.
Don't be deceived by those men of God that has reduced Christianity to confessional, ceremonious and activity laden religion. If you're truly in Christ, your old way of life must pass away and the new life of Christ must manifest in you. 
.
If you watch pornography when you were in the world and now that you claimed to be a Christian, you secretly masturbate, then you're not a Christian. 
.
Dearly beloved, back up your life. Sickness can destroy your body. Accident may damage your physique. Death may take away your life here on earth but your spirit and soul is secured if they belong to God. 
.
That God created you doesn't mean you belong to Him if you don't accept Jesus Christ. There are many Jesus people believe in but the Jesus that would save you is the one that died and rose again, who conquered death and hell and He's seated at the right hand of God, far above principalities and powers. 
.
And if the Jesus Christ you say you believe in does not transform your life from within to without, your belief is questionable. 
.
Daily ensure that you back up your life by treading the narrow way that leads to life. Jesus Christ is the only way to God. He's the truth you need to know about God and He's the life God gives to those who come to Him through Him. 
.
Don't secure your body so much that you will lose your spirit and soul. Do not worry about those who can destroy the body, but fear the One who can destroy both the spirit and soul. Heaven is real. Hell is real but more real is the love of God that does not want you to perish in this life and in the world to come. 
.
Ponder on this truth: God created all men but not everyone would return to their Creator because of the choice they made on earth. Is your life backed up with God?
