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.

The Objective

There are only two categories of people on this earth. There are those who have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit, and there are those who haven’t. Many of the lost sit within the Church, while others would never think of darkening the door of a church building. But both are in terrible danger. Both are enemies of God in their minds through wicked works. Eternal justice hovers over them like a mighty anvil, and in a heartbeat, death could seize them today, and take them to Hell. They don’t believe that, but we know it to be a reality.

Death is not a process of evolution or Mother nature. It is the just penalty from a Holy God for violation of His Law--He is the One that said the soul that sins, shall die. Death is the arresting officer who will hold the criminal until the full sentence is given. It is truly, as the Bible says, a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God.

But the Scriptures tell us that God is rich in mercy. Guilty though we are, He has provided a pardon though the blood of the cross. In an instant, He can commute the sinner’s death sentence. What a glorious message we have for dying humanity--that God can grant them the gift of everlasting life, through the gospel.

This leaves us with a tremendous moral obligation. We are like doctors with a cure to cancer. How could any Christian remain silent? Like the Apostles, we cannot but speak that which we have seen and heard. So, soldier of Christ, never forget that our clear agenda is to preach the Gospel to every creature. It’s up to them to listen, and to obey.
