The past two Sunday mornings I have preached on “The Reality of Hell.”
The passage for both sermons is Luke 16:19-31. It is Jesus’s story on the rich man and Lazarus.
Here are a few highlights:
- The Great Desire of the people who are in Hell is that they do NOT want anyone else to be there.
- The rich, comfortable man on earth ends up begging in hell while the beggar outside his house ends up comforted in heaven.
- “A lack of signs is not why people reject Jesus. Rather, people willfully reject him. The heart cannot see what it is not looking for.” -Bock
