After this life is over, where will you spend eternity? Do you believe there is a God, heaven, and hell? What happens after death? Who are you putting your faith and trust in? Everyone will put their faith in one thing or another. These are very important questions you should ask yourself. Questions to be asked to those who have not considered the gravity of their current situation, their eternal destination.
You see all mankind has “fallen short of the glory of God.” Which means they have not lived up to the perfect standard of God, The Ten Commandments. All man has broken His Law and is doomed to be punished for the crimes they have committed against a holy and perfect God. Unless someone pays the price for their redemption, their destination will be hell.
Everyone on earth has broken His Law. We have all been liars, thieves, covetous, lustful, hateful, and disobedient to God’s rules and requirements. But the raw truth is that each one of us has been building up more wrath and punishment day by day with each sin committed. There is an account written in a book, that God possesses, recording each and every sin. We will give an account on that day of judgment.
It is of the utmost importance that you step forward in faith and obedience to God. To share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those who don’t believe. How else will they know, and how will they believe, unless they hear that they are lawbreakers. How can they receive the good news that Jesus Christ died to pay for their sins if no one tells them?
Don’t be afraid that you may drive them away from God. Because they can not be any farther away from Him than they already are. For God says, “they are condemned already”!
The most loving thing you can do is to shake them out of their slumber! Wake them from their deep sleep! Like a blind man walking toward a cliff, you would run, you would shout, and plead for him not to go any further! But to turn away from his destructive path and run away from danger!
The devil has quietly tricked them into believing he does not exist, and that God, eternal judgment, and punishment do not exist. You must speak up, you must run after them and plead for them not to go!
You are called to gently and lovingly show them the truth of God’s Law with them. To show them that they are criminals in God’s eyes! Once they see the gravity of their eternal damnation, they will be ready to hear the wonderful Gospel of Jesus Christ. The good news of the Savior who died to take the punishment that they deserve.
Understand this, there are only two options for mankind. Either, the Lord Jesus Christ will pay for their multitude of sins and crimes against God, or they will have to pay for them themselves, for all eternity in Hell.
What will you choose to do?
16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
19 And this is the judgment: the light [Jesus] has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. 20 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. 21 But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”
