Don't let anyone tell you that getting saved in order to go to Heaven or to avoid Hell is a wrong or selfish motive. We all do things everyday in order to avoid negative consequences or to reap positive ones.
We obey the speed limit in order to avoid a ticket.
We obey the law to stay out of jail.
We show up for work on time and do a good job in order to retain our employment.
We make our mortgage payments to avoid foreclosure or pay rent to avoid eviction.
We make our car payments to avoid the repo man.
We pay our utility bills each month to keep electricty and water.
We pay the fare in order to ride the airplane.
We renew our driver's license so we can continue driving.
There are those who say we should love Jesus simply because He died for us. That is true, but He died in order to redeem us from Hell and provide our way into Heaven.
