  5. PHILIP GRAHAM RYKEN:

    A House Divided Understand what is at stake in the decision we make for or against Jesus Christ. To serve God’s true and eternal King is to enter the way to everlasting life. Through faith in Christ, we will enter paradise. But to reject the kingship of Christ is to fall under the judgment of God. If we go our own way in life—if we insist on having the upper hand over other people, refusing to give up our foolish and selfish pleasures, always breaking God’s commandments and never submitting to his will for our lives—then we will never enter the kingdom of God. Unless we repent, we will be lost forever.
