Jude 7 (ESV)
just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.
What is Heaven like? We ask that often.
What about ‘What is Hell like?’
Verse 7 reminds us that Sodom and Gomorrah is an example of what Hell is like – facing judgment like that, for an eternity.
The people of those cities refused to turn, even when God came to inspect the city to see if the outcry about the sinfulness of the city was true. The city folk attempted to rape the angels who had come to investigate the reports.
The writer Max Lucado reminded us in his book Turn – that the ability to turn from our sin and seek God’s forgiveness is one of the best decisions anyone can make. It reverses the impending doom.
Come to God today. Turn while there is still time.
