It is not God’s desire for anyone to perish in eternal damnation. He loves
His creation and that’s why He sent Jesus to die so that even the vilest can
be redeemed. Even when Jesus was nailed to the cross, one of the criminals
being crucified beside Him said: “Jesus, remember me when you come into
your kingdom!” To this, Jesus replied: “Truly I tell you, today you shall be
with me in Paradise” (Luke 23:42).

This criminal’s human life was just about to end, and then our Lord
promised him eternal life in Paradise! Jesus snatched this sinner from the
jaws of death! He saved this man as He Himself was letting go of His own

earthly life. 

We can only be saved from the jaws of death through Jesus Christ.
