it's a choice we all face
God made all things and is worthy of praise and worship; He has the rightful rule over His creation. He is the king but man rebelled against Him and followed his own desires. God does not tolerate this rebellion and consequently upon death the rebels are rightly judged for their rebellion in conscious torment forever without end. Not a fire that annihilates, but an emotional, physical and spiritual torment that can never be softened, shortened or stopped. But God, because of His love, sent His Son into the world: the man Jesus Christ. Jesus always lived under God’s rule. Yet by dying in our place He took our punishment and brought forgiveness to all who would repent and believe. Then God raised Jesus to life again as the ruler of the world. Jesus has conquered death, now gives new life and will return to judge. Where does all this leave you? It leaves you with a choice of only two ways to live, your way or God’s way; it’s a choice we all face.
