Heaven's lakes will be even more amazing than Lake TahoeMarch 4
Charles Stanley caught my attention in a devotional last week were he stated: "There's an issue of supreme importance that we often forget about in the busyness of life and the daily challenges of relationships. It is the question of where people will spend eternity."
When we attend social gatherings and are meeting a new group of people what are some of the first questions we encounter.
1) Where do you live?
2) Where did you grow up?
3) Where do you work?
4) Where are you spending eternity! How wild would that be!
Stanley goes on to say: "Looking at the human race from a divine viewpoint, we understand that at the end of time, there will be two groups: those who will live forever with God and those who will experience eternal death, separated from Him. Every living person's final destination will hinge on the simplicity of receiving God's forgiveness for his or her sins."
For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
