A very troubled man visited church last night. He had been drinking a bit and we could tell he was hurting. He came to the service for help, yet he wouldn't respond to God or let us pray for him.
I realized, going to hell is not easy. You have to fight the love of God, survive the drawing of the Spirit, ignore the bible, resist many prayers, silence your conscience, deny powerful testimonies, block out conviction, and refuse a gospel of great mercy.
In light of God's great love, it takes a lot of work to be lost. Why do people fight? Surrender.
