Our daily battles may tire us, but one day we will have eternal rest and peace in heaven. Satan will experience his final defeat. As we read in Scripture: "The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matthew 13:41-42).

Although most people don't like to think about hell, the fact is it exists. It is a place of confinement, darkness, suffering, and loneliness. Unfortunately for the souls of so many people, the devil will not be the only one in hell. That is why we must always place utmost concern on the salvation of others.

Although most people don't like to think about hell, the fact is it exists.

 
Those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will spend eternity in heaven. They will experience the joy of uninterrupted fellowship with their Creator. Jesus said, "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am" (John 14:3).

After a lifetime of spiritual battles and personal struggles, the Christian will at last experience true rest. "Then I heard a voice from heaven say, 'Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.' 'Yes,' says the Spirit, 'they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them'" (Revelation 14:13).

Prayer: Father, thank You for the reminder that one day I will have eternal rest and peace in heaven. Until then, help me not to forget that there are many people around me who are headed for hell. Help me share Your love and Truth with them. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up" (Galatians 6:9).
