Two options for eternity

July 2nd, 2013

As I mentioned the other day, my wife and I are re-reading The Purpose Driven Life book by Rick Warren. Today we were up to chapter 4 which is titled, “Made to Last Forever”.  One section from page 37 really jumped out at me…

“While life on earth offers many choices, eternity offers only two: heaven and hell. Your relationship with God on earth will determine your relationship to Him in eternity. If you learn to love and trust God’s Son, Jesus, you will be invited to spend the rest of eternity with Him. On the other hand, if you reject His love, forgiveness, and salvation, you will spend eternity apart from God forever.

C.S. Lewis said , “There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done‘ and those to who God says, ‘All right then, have it your own way. ‘” Tragically, many people will have to endure eternity without God because they chose to live without Him here on earth”.
