What happens after death to those not united to Christ by faith?
- Answer: They will be cast out from the presence of God, into hell, to be justly punished forever.
- Scripture: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God…. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him. (John 3:16–18 and 36)
- Prayer: Our heavenly Father, we want you to look at the thousands around us who do not know you and who go nowhere to worship. Lord, have pity on them; Father forgive them. Give them a desire to hear your Word. Send them a desire to seek you, their God. Lord, please help them to begin to think about eternal things. Help them to seek you, the great Physician, and find healing. Send them your Spirit in power that they may be willing to rest in Christ. Save people today, we pray. Amen.
