For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.
The grandest illusion the Devil uses is that “good people” go to heaven. He’s convinced scores of people that by doing good deeds and being a good person, the gates of heaven are open to them. Of course the truth is much grimmer. We are born as enemies of God thanks to the very first humans who brought sin and death into the equation. The only source of reconciliation is believing on Jesus Christ. So our job is to help pull the wool “off” of their eyes!
