Verses 46-48 were the particular verses that caught my attention:
"Son, I am not sending you down there to judge the people...but to save them! My command to you is to tell them how to have everlasting life...shed light in the darkness...tell them how much I love them...tell them I want to spend eternity with them because I love them. I am commanding you to tell them this because they need to know how much I love them...and if they don't listen to your words, you will show them when you literally sacrifice your life and die for them."
The "something" that "clicked" inside of me was the fact that this life is actually all about the next life. Life here on earth is definitely NOT all there is. "Heaven is our Hope" because God sent His Son to show us how to get there. God sent His Son to SAVE us, not to JUDGE us. His desire was that we would be redeemed and delivered into heaven's gates when our life here is ended. If we reject this invitation, we seal our own fate and then the judgment comes.
Remember this one? I'm sure you've heard it many times before:
