For now, though, we have the choice to live either in heaven or in hell, to occupy the Kingdom of light or the Kingdom of darkness. And those who choose hell bring it with them, into every relationship and every interaction. And those who choose heaven do the same. Eternal life is not a destination but a present reality.
And then there's Jesus. Jesus Christ, God of the universe, straddling both Kingdoms reaching down to pull us from darkness into the light. The brunt of hell's fire berating Him Christ grabs hold of us and won't let go, never, not even once we've passed from darkness into the light because the light is the realm of His constant embrace.
Amen means "let it be so," and so I beg my Lord, amen. Let it be so Jesus. Please.
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.
