A tormented soul cries out, “How did I get here?” “This can’t be right; I’m not supposed to be here.” “I’m a christian.” “Oh God, what’s going on?” “Haven’t I been faithful to you?”

Day by day hell enlarges itself, with souls that thought they had it made. They said all the right words, did all the right things. So, why are they in a place that wasn’t meant for them?

Jesus plays his life back to him. To his surprise, he didn’t see all the works he had done for the Lord. The moment he only saw was while on his deathbed he didn’t forgive his wife for committing adultery.

A lifetime of good works all gone to waste, because of one unforgiving heart.



Another soul cries out, “What is this place?” “Where am I?” “Why didn’t anyone tell me?” “Oh God, why didn’t anyone tell me?” “If I had only known about you Lord, I wouldn’t be here.”

Day by day hell enlarges itself, with souls given a chance to repent and turned it down. So, why are they in a place that wasn’t meant for them?

Jesus plays her life back to her. The drinking, doing drugs, and the sex with married men. He showed her every moment when he gave her a chance to repent. The track she found in a restroom. Her grandmother that would call her twice a week to tell her she was praying for her and that Jesus still loved her.

Almost persuaded to turn to Jesus, but didn’t give it a second thought to where she would spend eternity.

Yes, I believe there will be many churchgoers who find themselves in Hell, those with unchanged hearts who thought that they were "good enough," or "better than their neighbors, at least." Thanks for the reminder.

Short, punchy and to the point. Well done.
