John 3:16. One of the most familiar, if not THE most familiar verse in the Bible. It is the entire gospel… the good news of Jesus Christ … in one sentence. God loves us. God provided a savior in His Son Jesus, but we must put our complete trust and belief in Him. And by doing so we enjoy eternal life. Life abundant spent with our Creator God in Heaven where all is right and perfect and glorious.
But if we do not place our full trust and belief in what Jesus has done for us, what then? We must understand there is still an eternity to be spent. This eternity is Hell; a place of everlasting separation from God. It is a place of torment and anguish and punishment. Daniel 12:2 says it is a place of “disgrace and everlasting contempt.” Revelation 14:11 speaks of having no rest forever and ever.
The God of Heaven and Earth, the Creator of this Universe and all that is in it, gives each of us a choice. It is a choice of eternity. No one else can choose that eternity for us. It is solely our own personal decision. Yet the Lord so loves us that He reached down in the most personal way possible. He gave us His own Son, Jesus, to deliver us from our natural sin and to make our eternity secure.
This eternal choice is yours to make. Eternity is certainly a bigger concept than you and I can fully grasp. God in His love for us also provides us His Holy Spirit to help us understand our need for Him and to envelope us with His peace when that relationship is secure. Reach out to Him. Trust Him. He is Who He says He is and He…will…save…you for eternity!!
