Hell is Real, and far more terrible than we realize.

Jesus is the greatest of all, because He was willing to be last, and servant of all. As the greatest Servant that He continues to be, He allows us to share in the praise that only He deserves, as we receive our “well done” from God, for the service we’ve offered to Him.
