Unbelievers live always in doubt. " What if.... ". Hell?? What if the Muslim God and Muslim hell are true? So they try to distract from the uncertain situation they chose to be in. Attempt to appease their fears and doubts. They inflict to themselves emptiness, unrest, cognitive dissonance, and spiritual death.
They trade what the heavenly father has prepared for them, for autonomy which is self-delusional, because all they get is slavery to their self.
A Christian has peace in his heart. God gives peace, grace and forgiveness to the believer. Peace for knowing:
" I found the truth."
And peace for knowing: God has forgiven my sins and given me eternal life. No fear of death anymore.
Our parents here on earth, when they die, mostly have some inheritance to leave for their children. Which son or daughter would refuse to receive it?
But God Almighty has the most precious inheritance for his children: Christ's sacrifice made it possible. He died and his death opened the doors. What belongs to him, he gives to his children. Eternal life, First here on earth a fulfilled life in his presence, and then where he is, in heaven. No sin can and does separate us any further. There is no greater gift than this.
He will share the place where he is, with us. Small limited rebellious sinners. First, he purified us. Gave us a new nature, adopted us from our miserable state and made us new, and then gave us a new nature, a new heart, hope, peace, and eternal life.
What a tremendous God, what a tremendous plan. What tremendous and privileged fate for us, believers.
A man that has just enough material things to have a decent normal life, but has Christ, has more than a billionaire without Jesus.
Glory to HIM.
