Heaven or Hell?

victory in Jesus

Contrary to what some might think, people don’t go to hell because of their sin. If they did, which one or how many sins would you have to commit, to go there? Hell was created for the devil and his angels (Matthew 25:42). It is not God’s will that any should perish (2 Peter 3:9). People choose hell because of rejecting the One who paid the price for their sin – unbelief.

What I’ve discovered talking to the lost and un-churched is this: They have never had the Gospel explained to them to let them know that all their sin can be forgiven through faith in Jesus Christ. We can never assume that everyone knows or has heard the true message of grace. Most of the time, their mindsets are that they have done too many wrongs for God to forgive them.

However, when you start to tell them about the “Living Christ” who died and rose again and took all their sin away, if they only believe, they start to listen. I tell them, “God is not out to get you. He is not mad at you. He only wants to love you.” That’s the part that makes them start to think of how could God every forgive them after what all they’ve done. Jesus says in John 14:6 that, “I am the way, the  truth, and the life; no man cometh to the Father, but by Me.

Every single person has a choice to make whether or not to receive what has already been paid for. So why does not everyone choose Christ? It could be several different reasons, but maybe the biggest reason is because of how a person that calls themselves a Christian has treated them and then because of them not knowing Christ, they think He is like them.

I think another huge reason is that no one has ever told them about a loving God that sent His only begotten Son to die on a cross and take all the punishment for man-kinds sin. We Christians have a responsibility to show others by using our hands to help; our feet to go to them, and the words we speak, to let others know everything has already been paid for, so why not except the gift of Jesus. They have to know of God’s goodness because, God’s goodness will lead them to repentance.
