This an excerpt from Justin Taylor's blog:
"We need to realize that those who are in hell desire nothing more than the absence of God. They didn’t want to be in God’s presence during their earthly lives, and they certainly don’t want Him near when they’re in hell. The worst thing about hell is the presence of God there."
—R. C. Sproul, The Truth of the Cross (Orlando, FL: Reformation Trust, 2007), pp. 157-158; my emphasis.
What a gift we have in this faith that but for the grace of God we would be with those who deny God and live in rebellion to him. May God continue to grant us eyes to see.
A few months ago I posted here regarding hell and the actualities of it.
