Preliminary Reading: Finding Gratitude
Along the same lines, there is a cell in hell with my name on it. But it’s empty. And will continue to be. Just like Jesus’ tomb. And for that reason I am grateful.
I am grateful only because I know that my cell will be empty. Knowing that I deserve hell makes me grateful for what Jesus did for me on the cross. My absence in hell means my presence in heaven. And I can’t think of anything more worth being grateful for.
