How Hot is Hell?

I've been thinking about hell. The fire department burned down an abandoned house on our property last week. It was fun to watch. They used it for training; they lit a fire in one corner and a group of volunteers marched into the darkness of the smoke with the hose and masks and heavy oxygen tanks. Then they started another fire in another corner, and another group of volunteers put out that fire. It gave me a good sense of appreciation for what firemen do. This went on for 7 hours. While the fire was fun to watch, it was the coals that blasted the heat. The longer it burned, the further I had to retreat. I've never experienced that amount of heat, and that made me think of hell.

Perhaps more than any other book in the Bible, Revelation gives us a glimpse of the majesty and grandeur of Jesus. In these days of global fear of a microscopic organism, we need reminders that God is bigger than a virus. Passages like Revelation 1 (and Isaiah 6) provide those reminders.

“Pray then like this” (Matt 6:9)

In the midst of a world-wide pandemic, do you find it easier or harder to pray? I suspect “easier” in the sense that fear pushes us to pray more often and more fervently. I also suspect “harder” in light of the mounting number of deaths and the minor discomfort of self-quarantine. When I am not sure how to pray, I tend to follow the Lord’s Prayer and fill in the spaces between the lines (so to speak) with the specifics of my life.
