AVOID THE DEFAULT DESTINATION
It has been said that the two most important days of a man’s life are the day on which he was born and the day on which he discovers why he was born.
Here’s clarity on the importance of these two days:
THE DAY YOU WERE BORN
“Thus says God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which comes out of it; he that gives breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein.” (Isaiah 42:5)
WHY YOU WERE BORN
“And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment.” (Mark 12:30)
Jesus talked about hell more than any other person in the Bible to warn against the absolute reality of hell. God does not send us to hell. Hell is our default destination should we resist or reject what Jesus did on the cross.
Hell is a place of eternal torment (Luke 16:23), of unquenchable fire (Mark 9:43),), where people will gnash their teeth in anguish and regret (Matt. 13:42), and from which there is no return, even to warn loved ones (Luke 16:19–31).
The Renewal of your Mind can save you from the Default Destination
“And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Rom. 12:2)
UNFORTUNATELY, WE MISTAKENLY BELIEVE WE KNOW BETTER
“For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” (Rom. 12:3)
DO THE RIGHT THING – RECEIVE JESUS AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOUR
