The Lord has made my heart heavy.
I have loved ones that may spend eternity in hell, in eternal separation from God. My brain cannot fathom the never ending pain that will be experienced being separated from Christ. Just thinking of that eternal torment makes my lungs gasp for air.
If God didn't even spare His angels...why would he spare us from hell?
" For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment..." 2 Peter 2:4
So, may I ask you a question?
"If you were to die tonight, and stand before God and He were to say to you, 'Why should I let you into My heaven?' what would you say?"
Please take some time to really think about this question...
God gave us His Word, The Bible so we could know the answer to this question and "have eternal life". (1 John 5:13)
Do you feel that because you're a "good person", God should let you into heaven?
Heaven is a free gift. There is nothing anyone can "do" to earn this gift. A gift is not free if you have to do something to get it.
Every human is a sinner (to miss the mark and so not share in the prize). There is nothing we can do to "save ourselves". It only takes 1 sin to seperate us from a Holy, Sinless God.
So if there's NOTHING we can do to save ourselves, when we die, how do we enter heaven and have a relationship with a Holy God?
Jesus is God. God came down to man in the person of Jesus and paid the price for man's sins so we can have eternal life with God.
This is the one and only plan God had to save man from eternal separation from Him. There is no other way but through Jesus.
To receive the gift of eternal life, man must receive Christ. We must trust Jesus Christ alone for salvation. Faith in anyone or anything else is a rejection of God and His free gift.

I am praying for you.
