Where Will You Spend Eternity?
Our eternal salvation is the most important thing in this life. It doesn't matter what we have accomplished if we lose our souls in Hell. Jesus says in Matthew 16:26, "For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?" There is nothing in this world that is worth losing our soul.
Our soul is worth more than the whole world and everything in it. Our soul is the part of us that is going to live on forever and ever throughout all eternity. Jesus says concerning eternity, "And these shall go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life" (Matthew 25:46). Everlasting punishment in Hell and eternal life in Heaven will both be forever and ever, without end. You cannot afford to lose your soul and be eternally punished in the burning fires of Hell, because the punishment will never end.
In eternity we will be placed in only one of two possible places: Heaven or Hell. Heaven is so wonderful, we can't even begin to imagine what it will be like. Heaven is described by Jesus as containing many mansions (John 14:1-3). In Revelation 21:4, we read, "And God shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." Heaven is indescribable, because "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him" (1 Corinthians 2:9).
Hell is the opposite of Heaven. Hell is so terrible that we cannot comprehend how horrible the torment will be with the continual weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth (Matthew 8:12). Jesus says "there are many who go in by it" (Matthew 7:14). Those who go there will be "cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, and they shall be tormented day and night forever and ever" (Revelation 20:10). The person who ends up in Hell will only have himself to blame. He chose to go there.
If you were to die today do you know for certain, without a doubt, that you would go to Heaven? This is a question which we cannot afford to be wrong, because eternity is very permanent. Both Heaven and Hell will last forever and ever. Both are eternal and everlasting. Let's make sure that you avoid Hell and that you go to Heaven.
