Daily devotional: Heaven or lake of fire

Scripture
I saw the dead, both great and small, standing before God's throne. And the books were opened, including the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to what they had done, as recorded in the books.
Revelation 20:12 NLT

Observation
Everyone who has ever lived will be judged. Those who have not accepted Jesus as their Savior will be thrown into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:15, 21:8). But those who have trusted in Jesus will live forever with God himself (Revelation 21:1-7).

Application
The reward is too great to resist, and the penalty is too horrible to ignore. I must use the opportunity to help people understand what is in store.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for this new week and for Your beauty all around me. Thank you for richly giving me abundant life. Please direct me across the paths of those You are preparing for eternal life with You, and speak through me by Your Holy Spirit. Help me to have the exact words to say and not miss any opportunity. I love you!
