That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height- to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God - Ephesians 3:17-19 (NKJV). Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us - Romans 5:5 (NKJV). Growing in the love of God is mandatory if you want to please God and enjoy all that He has for them that love Him (Romans 8:28) and to ensure you will be with Him where He is. When you develop the love of Christ in you, serving God will no more be a struggle for you, you will do it with delight. Also, you will not be overcome by sin anymore.

Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near” (Life Application Study Bible Rev 1:1-3). This bible section is the opening into the great vision of John’s that denounces the aegis of God. He uses the words Jesus and God quite frequently in order to proclaim the power of Jesus Christ. Revelation is “Jesus’ Revelation in the sense that it belongs to him, he is the one doing the revealing” (Guzik). The book is Jesus sharing with the world the future of the world.
We all deserve God's judgment but God sent His only son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. It is important to differentiate between the character of Christ and lifestyle issues.
