Revelation 20:15 (ESV)
And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was throw into the lake of fire.
What a horrifying thought.
If this does not turn a sinner from sin – what will?
It’s tough to follow Christ in this world. It often seems easier to just take a shortcut, compromise on obedience to His word – just to make it easier for ourselves.
But Scripture teaches – There is a way that seems right to a man,
But its end is the way of death. (Proverbs 14:14 NKJ)
Furthermore, Jesus said – “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14 NIV)
But following Christ – leads us to ETERNAL LIFE. Following the ways of the world rather than God’s leads to destruction.
