We know the Things of Hell Too Well

 “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. [14] For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. (Matthew 7:13–14 ESV)

A man doesn't have to die to go to hell, but don't be mislead- hell on earth is not hell in hell.
While he still lives he might escape, but when he dies it's permanent

We know the things of Hell too well
And the ways of Heaven too little.

We know them in everyday ways
Yet amazingly aren’t afraid.
As we stand mute to the extension of grace
Resistant to peace and rebels in His face..

We know the things of hell-
The fevers, the chills, the cancers that ravage
The agonies, the wounds, and weapons so savage.

Lies, and manipulation destroy reputations
Revenge and lust gun down the nations.

We all know the things of Hell too well.
And the ways of Heaven too little.

A babies smile, a little child’s giggle
A word that picks up our day.
A ray of hope that breaks the lonely widow’s cell.
I wish we knew Heaven that well..

How strange we are to choose the door that is full of the things of hell.

We know the things of Hell too well.
And the Ways of Heaven too little.

Do we really want to stay forever in a place that reeks of Hell?
Or cry out to the One who said “It is Done”?

Only time will tell.
