Scriptures: Luke 16:19-31
In these verses, we read about a rich man who went to Hell. Hell changed this man, it made him different than the person he was on earth.
What changes did he experience?
Seeing all of these differences in this man, we can ask the question "why did hell cause such a change in this man? Hell became more than a story, it was a reality, where he was plagued with constant remorse and despair. He was faced with an eternal desire for freedom, while being consumed by regret, loneliness and the memories of lost opportunities.
So how does this relate to your lives? We are reminded that we have the opportunity to experience these changes now! We are given the opportunity to choose a life with God now. Repentance and vision are available readily to us. We can separate ourselves from evil and eschew the temptation to compromise. God gives us the mission to reach the lost and we can help others find Him and experience life-changes this side of eternity!
