“Yes, hell’s misery is deep, but not as deep as God’s love. So how do we apply this message? If you are saved, it should cause you to rejoice. You’ve been rescued. A glance into hell leads the believer to rejoice. But it also leads the believer to redouble his efforts to reach the lost. To understand hell is to pray more earnestly and to serve more diligently. Ours is a high-stakes mission. And the lost? What is the meaning of this message for the unprepared? Heed the warnings and get ready. This plane won’t fly forever. ‘Death is the destiny of every man; the living should take this to heart’ (Ecclesiastes 7:2 NIV).” —Max
