God isn't forcing His love upon us. If He did then we would have no choice but to love Him. He'd be taking away our free will. So He's giving us a choice. Love Him and your reward is Heaven. Reject Him and condemn yourself to Hell. They are the two options God has presented us with and the ONLY two options. Remember God doesn't send us to hell, we condemn ourselves to hell. You give your wife a choice, "stay with me and we'll spend the rest of our lives together or go your away and never see me again". Are we as Christians afraid of Hell? Very much so, but it's necessary for us to keep our love in the Lord or risk losing faith.
