I’m not getting by with anything by rejecting God. You’re not getting away with anything either. God is God.
I can refuse God all I want. So can you. God is still God. Nothing changes that. My opinion simply doesn’t matter.
Will I be stubborn and refuse to radically change my mind about King Jesus and the Way of love?
Far be it from me. I choose Jesus. I want life.
I can avoid God all I want. God is God. One day I will stand before Him. One day you will as well. It is indeed a fearful and terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God incurring His judgment and wrath.
There is such a thing as the fire of hell. God’s righteous judgement cannot be avoided. One Jesus is going to separate the sheep from the goats. The goats, who choose to reject King Jesus and God will hear “Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels.” That will be it. God is God.
I choose God and His Son Jesus. The promise for obedience is real and eternal life. I’m going to work on God’s side. I must choose life or fire.
I must persistent in doing good. I must seek to love at every opportunity. I will share in unseen but certain heavenly glory, honor, and immortality. Jesus will give the gift of eternal life.
I get to choose. I choose Jesus and life.
