Dads, get this one right with your children. No game playing. No wishful thinking. There is a coming judgment, and there is only one way to avoid this judgment, and that is believing in Jesus Christ.
Many people live in a world of pretend and “hope” that one day things will work out. However, one day, there will be no more pretending as absolute reality will set in with each person that has been born onto this planet.
- (John 5:25–29 ESV) Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. 26 For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. 27 And he has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man. 28 Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment.
God did the only thing that a holy, righteous God could do. Sin had to be paid for. Wrath had to be taken by someone.
So he sent his Son to pay the price for our sins …
- (John 3:16 ESV) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
