And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life. –Matthew 25:46 NLT
As Christians, we believe Heaven and hell are real places. People use the word hell in many conversations. People suffering here on earth may compare it to living in hell. However, hell is nothing to speak lightly about. Hell is a reality for the lost.
The Lord doesn’t want anyone to be lost. We all are sinners. However, when we accept Jesus as Savior, everything changes—no matter our past. We have Heaven to gain by believing and placing our faith in Jesus. The pain and misery in hell will be so severe; whatever we experience in this world will in no way be comparable to the suffering of hell for all eternity. In Matthew 7:13 (ESV), we are told, “…the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.”
For believers, the blessing of Heaven is a wonderful picture of God’s grace, mercy, and love for us even though we don’t deserve it by our actions alone. When you belong to Jesus, Heaven awaits you.
Praise God for sending His Son.
Pray for all those who are lost and have not yet found a personal relationship with Jesus.
