Deliver the whole truth about hell, redirect people who are headed there,
and wake up complacent Christians.
Here’s the truth: Jesus spoke about hell more than heaven. He said in Matthew 7:13-14, “…wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” The percentage of those of us who will die is 100. Do you know where you will spend your eternity? Heaven is not our default destination. We can never be good enough to attain heaven. Salvation is a free gift, but we have a free will to choose it, or reject it. God doesn’t send people to hell. Jesus said in Matt.12:37 our own words will condemn us. It’s not His decision. It’s ours.
God has commanded every Christ follower to go into the world and tell people the truth about His Word. It’s not a suggestion. It’s a command. If we truly understood how severe hell really is, we would have an urgency and compassion for people who don’t know Christ.
Keeping eternity in mind, we must watch for every opportunity to share God’s love with them.
