Hell is a real place of unimaginable pain and suffering. I say that without any glee in my heart and while simply resting on the full authority of Jesus’s own words found in the Bible. Yes, hell was very much on the Savior’s mind, heart, and lips.

In Luke chapter 16, for example, Jesus told a true story about a rich man who died and went to hades. Jesus said the man was in so much agony that he cried out, “Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame” (v. 24).

What Jesus said about hell should awaken the human heart to repentance or evangelism.
