The Gospel, The Good News 13 of 41

My sin against God (cont)

Living for myself and thinking I can live for myself with no consequences, I have really shown myself to be utterly foolish. Because of my selfish arrogance God has every right as a righteous Judge to damn me to the eternal punishment of the everlasting experience of His terrifying wrath in the Lake of Fire that eternally burns with fire and brimstone. This is what I deserve because of my selfish, sinful life that I live for myself.  (How is this good news? first I have to realize why I need good news. the plight of humanity- no one is good except God)

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death, (but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord).

Revelations 21:8
But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. 

Ephesians 2:3
among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
