This morning Abby shared last night’s dream with me as she often does.
“We were at a building and one area was marked Heaven, while the other was marked Hell. There were some kids in the Heaven area with me, but many in the Hell area. I kept yelling to the kids in the Hell area, ‘over here, come over to Heaven! It is good in Heaven, you are welcome to come over, hurry!’ But, Mom, they just chose to stay in Hell. They didn’t care.”
Recently a friend was sharing a sermon he had heard. In the sermon the Pastor talked about his reply to when people ask him how a loving God could send people to Hell. The Pastor explains that God does not send people to Hell; rather people choose to go to Hell. God has made it very clear the path to Heaven is through his Son Jesus Christ and when people deny Him they are making the choice to go to Hell.
We all sin. The path to Heaven is not achieved by our perfection, but by His. Jesus was sent to Earth to live as one of us, with us and then to ultimately die for us and our salvation. In return, we are only asked to accept Him as our Lord and Savior and He will have a place in Heaven for us to join Him. Simple, right?
In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. (John 14:2)
