You Deserve It
My text will come from 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9. In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
So many times you hear out in public advertising or through the media that you deserve one thing or another. Whether it is nice clothes, makeup, a trip, a good job or a big settlement on a law suit its “You deserve this” or “You deserve that” etc.
From our text there will be a multitude of people that will get exactly what they deserve when they reject and disobey the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
From our text these people will get what they deserved.
2. everlasting destruction
3. flaming fire
4. separation from the Lord’s presence
5. separation from the Lord’s glory and his power
You see, all those that don’t get saved will get what they deserve, death, judgment, and Hell. They earned it and they will get it because they deserve it.
The Bible makes it clear that we are all sinners and none of us are righteous. We all come up short when it comes to God’s standards, so we need to be saved from our sins and Hell.
The Lord Jesus came down here to do that very thing. ... Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; …he was buried, …he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 1st Corinthinans 15:3-4.
He paid for our sins and went to Hell for us so we wouldn’t have to go. By trusting him and him alone we now can go to Heaven when we die. Why don't you trust him today to get you to Heaven. Call on him right now to save you.
For those of us that are saved we won’t get what we deserve.
