"Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord." ESV
The watered down gospel today tells us that since God is a god of love, He would never send anyone to hell. Unfortunately this is a lie direct from Satan that deceives many each day. We are saved by grace through faith in Christ, and if we have truly put our faith in Him we will bear His fruit. These are not works we do on our own. The fruit is a natural expression of the life of Christ in us. Peace and holiness will pour from those of us who have true faith in Him and we are those who will see our Lord for eternity. God never sends anyone to hell. They choose it rather than let God control their lives.
Heavenly Father, forgive us for those times we do not show peace and holiness because we have let our faith grow complacent and cold. Give us the urgency of the danger of being in this state. Help us grow in Your grace that we will have the faith in You that will produce the fruit of peace, and the holiness like Christ had when He walked this earth. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
