An everlasting relationship with God instead of going to hell is for those who TURN from a lifestyle of sin, believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and in His death and resurrection, and SURRENDER TO THE LORDSHIP OF JESUS.
We must TURN TO GOD AND HIS WAYS and live in OBEDIENCE to Him which can be extraordinarily hard especially when so much of this world is turned away from God.
But TOTAL DEVOTION to the Lord and OBEDIENCE to Him go hand in hand with a deeply intimate forever LOVE RELATIONSHIP with Jesus that produces unfathomable JOY.
We should OBEY GOD because we love Him not to get something from Him, but rest assured God blesses us immeasurably and endlessly through our OBEDIENCE including with JOY!
