A HIGH-STAKES MISSION

“Don’t be afraid of people, who can kill the body but cannot kill the soul. The only one you should fear is the one who can destroy the soul and the body in hell.”
MATTHEW 10:28

Hell’s misery is deep, but not as deep as God’s love. So how do we apply this [truth]? If you are saved, it should cause you to rejoice. You’ve been rescued. A glance into hell leads the believer to rejoice. But it also leads the believer to redouble his efforts to reach the lost. To understand hell is to pray more earnestly and to serve more diligently. Ours is a high-stakes mission.

And the lost? What is the meaning of this message for the unprepared? Heed the warnings and get ready. “We all must die, and everyone living should think about this” (Ecclesiastes 7:2).
