The Restless Bed

What is sown now — will be reaped in eternity.
Eternal life is the free gift of a gracious God.
Eternal punishment is the just wages of eternal sin.
We deserve Hell now — but we may escape it by fleeing to Jesus. If we refuse to do so — then we can only expect to reap the fruit of our folly.
Heaven is the gift of God's grace — but Hell is the wages of sin.
Every sinner makes his own Hell. In this light, let us look at the words of the Psalmist, "If I make my bed in Hell." Psalm 139:8
[James Smith]

John 3:36 ... He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
Matthew 25:46 ... And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Romans 6:23 ... For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
