Ever wondered, “How can I reply to this person to share the Gospel with them?” when online?
For example, say you’re on Facebook or something and you post John 3:16 or something. Perhaps you post the Gospel or a link to an article about the Gospel.
Either way, someone replies with, for example, “Everlasting life sounds so boring.” How should you reply? Well, I’ve got an answer.
“When you die, you will either go to Heaven or Hell. Heaven is a please of everlasting joy, peace and no-deathness. It will be perfect, basking in the glory of God.
Hell on the other hand is the bad place. There, you will burn in real fire forever and ever amen. IT WILL BE HORRIBLE!
I want you to go to Heaven, not Hell- and so does God.
Have you ever lied before? You have- everyone has. Have you ever stolen something? If you have, then so far, you’re a lying thief. You have sinned.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
That means you are headed for Hell for all eternity. You will burn there forever. One day, you will stand before God and your life will be replayed in front of everyone that has ever lived and ever will live. You will be judged and thrown into Hell forever- AND I OR GOD DOES NOT WANT THAT TO HAPPEN! “So if God doesn’t want it to happen to me, why doesn’t He just open the gates of Heaven and let me in?” you may ask. Well, think of it like this.
A person had committed a terrible crime- he or she had ran over and killed many, many people. Would you think the judge would just say, “well, I’m going to let you out.”? Would you like that? A very bad person, just let out on the streets to kill some more- pollute the streets with fear? No, you wouldn’t. That’s just the same with God! He’s a Loving God and He wouldn’t just let a person who has sinned into Heaven, because they’d pollute it.
So He sends that person to Hell, as a punishment for his or her sins.
That’s just what a judge would do. He or she would send the person to prison.
However, what if there was a way out? Yes there is. I’ll tell you.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
That verse is the Key to everlasting life in joy and glory.
Go sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to save it from it’s sins. He did that for you and He did that for me- in fact, He did that for EVERYONE!
Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, died on the cross so you wouldn’t have to go to Hell- so you could go to Heaven! HE DID THAT FOR YOU!
Would you lay down your life for your friends? Probably not. Would you lay down your life for many, many people who have done really bad things to you? No, I don’t think so.
However, that’s just what Jesus did. He layed down His Perfect, sinless Life and spilled His Perfect, sinless Blood so you wouldn’t have to go to Hell.
Hell is a very real place.
However, Heaven is just as real as Hell.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
“And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”
Do you accept God’s free Gift of Salvation?
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
You can edit it if you want but just don’t change the message- it what gets people saved.
God bless! 🙂
