Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Every sane person develops healthy fear of danger as they mature in life. As children we learn that fire is hot, and falling from heights can be painful. They are self-preserving fears. But there are some adults that are called “daredevils” who ignore those fears and instead try to cheat death. They are perhaps called dare “devils” because the devil is the one that once had power over death (see Hebrews 2:14,15). He, as the chief executioner, had the legal right to take the lives of every human being, because we are law-breakers under the sentence of death (see Romans 6:23). But that legal power was taken from him when Jesus paid our fine in His life’s blood, and rose from the grave (see Revelation 1:18). Upon repentance and faith in the Savior, the Christian has his death sentence commuted. Our case is dismissed because the evidence of our transgressions is washed away. The Judge of the earth, in His great mercy, legally allows us to live. No wonder the Bible calls what we have in Christ the “unspeakable gift.” No words can express what good news this is for dying humanity--that everlasting life is the free gift of God! So, be a “you-know-what,” and ignore the fear that seeks to stop you from sharing this good news with those who are still ignorant as to what actually happened on that cross, so long ago.
