Why did I reject His love?

God did not originally prepare hell for people.  Jesus said that hell was prepared for the devil and his angels.  Why?  Because hell protects others from being hurt by the evil of satan and his demons.  Unfortunately hell is also the destiny of some people.  All people (except Jesus) have rejected God at least once.  They have wanted to do their own thing, be their own “god”, they have not wanted to submit to love and so they do evil to other people and to God.  Jesus’ offer of forgiveness, cleansing, righteousness, and restored fellowship with His Father, is offered to all.  It is God’s desire that all come to the knowledge of this truth and accept His offer.  Yet some, exercising their right to freely choose, a right given by God, will not humble themselves and accept God’s free gift of life.  Jesus said they do this because they love the darkness better than the light.  But satan and his demons, and people who reject God’s forgiveness, will someday not be allowed to hurt anyone any more.  In hell each will be alone, in darkness, with their lies stripped from their minds, seeing clearly what they have done, wondering over and over, “Why did I reject His love?”
