Would you like to hear either of the following news items?
1. You just won $50,000,000 in the lottery!
2. You are on the 5th floor of an office building and the 1st floor is engulfed in flames!
I think you would be very interested in hearing either item of news. In fact, you would be very upset if nobody gave you either piece of information. And you should be upset as both would affect your life tremendously.
The Bible contains information even more important than news item #1 above. In Christ, we are children of the most High God! Our inheritance is literally beyond this world. Fifty million dollars is a drop in the bucket compared to what Jesus has given and is preparing for us. We cannot even imagine what God has in store for us in Heaven.
News item #2 is frightening, and God’s Word shares that there are even worse consequences for people who choose to live a life separate from God’s love. People who choose not to accept God’s gift of salvation and grace will be eternally separated from His awesome love, which is Hell. The sad news is many people think they’re good enough to get to Heaven or that their good works will get them there. They don’t know the truth about what God says. They’ve probably heard of Hell, but they’ve never heard the truth about their situation. And they won’t know unless we tell them.
