When you meet Jesus and you explain to Him that you rejected Him because you were offended when someone explained to you that we’re all sinners and that sinners who die without Jesus go to Hell, what do you think Jesus will say?

I guarantee He won’t be apologizing to you. He won’t be upset with the preacher or evangelist who told you the truth either. He won’t even have to spend the time explaining to you where you’ll be spending eternity because one of His servants already took care of that.

If the truth about sin and Hell hurts your feelings, it’s time to change your feelings—because the truth isn’t changing. Stop being offended. God wants you. God loves you. He sent His Son Jesus to Earth to die for you. God wishes that none would perish. His heart is that everyone will come to believe in Jesus and be saved from sin and eternal torment in the Lake of Fire.

Come to Jesus today—right now. Turn away from any sin, self-made beliefs, false religions, addictions, grudges, anger, and hatred. Turn to Jesus. Believe. That’s all you have to do. Just believe that God loved you so much He sent His Son, Jesus, to Earth to die for your sins on the cross. Jesus was perfect, yet He took our sins. He bore our pain. He suffered Hell on the cross so that whoever believes in Him doesn’t have to suffer Hell for eternity.

When you trust that Jesus is your Savior, God gives you a new heart. You’re born again on the inside, and the Holy Spirit seals you for the day of resurrection, the day on which you will receive a new body. You’re a new creation in Christ, inside out—body and soul.

As a new creation, you get to live with God for eternity. God is perfect and immortal, and He loves you so much that He made a way for you to become perfect and immortal. Jesus is the Way. Jesus is the only Way! Trust in Jesus today!

If we don’t start in faith, we’ll never end up in faith. We must sow in faith if we’re going to reap in faith.

He [Jesus] sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. And He said to them, “Take nothing for the journey, neither staffs nor bag nor bread nor money; and do not have two tunics apiece.” Luke 9:2-3

In my experience, very few evangelistic conversations require talking about Hell, but the conversations that do go there can be quite powerful. I find the topic of Hell comes up most frequently with people who have grown up in the church but walked away from the faith. Talking about Hell is never about scaring people into believing in Jesus. Hell is simply one of the truths of the Bible that we sometimes need to be reminded of.

God wants people to come to Him because of His great love in sending Jesus to die for us. He created Hell to punish demons, and He wishes no human would go there. The reality is that humans who reject Jesus as Savior will go there. I would want someone to warn me if I was headed for an eternal Lake of Fire, so I extend the same courtesy to others, out of love—and only if the conversation leads there.

13 Steps for Evangelizing Now!!!

  1. Go to busy locations where people meet, take breaks, or have leisure time.
    -Parks, beaches, college hangouts, outside of cafeterias or recreational centers, restaurants, store checkouts, parking lots, seating areas outside of stores, offices, and other businesses, malls, outlets stores, etc.
  2. Approach someone who seems to be sitting around, finished eating, or the person to whom the Holy Spirit leads you. Try waving if the person is looking at his phone.
  3. Introduce yourself and ask a “point of entry question.” My favorites are:
    -Are you ready for the return of Jesus?
    -Has anyone ever told you about Jesus?
  4. Go deeper into the conversation with follow-up questions, such as
    -Who is Jesus to you? Is He your Savior? What has he saved you from?
    -Would Jesus let you into heaven? Why or why not?
  5. Present the gospel. I like to have the person tell me as much as they can about the gospel. Then, I fill in the gaps. Some people have never heard the gospel, so I explain that Jesus is the Son of God. He came to earth, died for our sins, and God raised Him from the dead.
  6. Figure out if the person trusts Jesus as Savior. By this point in the conversation, you probably have a sense of whether or not the person believes the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  7. If the person believes, and you have time, encourage him onwards in the Faith. Ask:
    -How are you serving the gospel of Jesus Christ?
    -Is there anything in your life that’s keeping you from serving Jesus?
    -If Jesus spent the day with you, what would He think about your life?
    -Do you have any questions about Jesus or the Bible?
  8. If the person does not believe the gospel of Jesus and seems open to talking more, go deeper into the conversation with questions like:
    -Do you know that all you need to do is repent and believe to be saved?
    -Do you know anyone who loves you so much they would die for you?
    -Did you know Jesus died for us while we were still enemies with him?
  9. If the person seems unreceptive or hardened against going deeper into the conversation, then it’s fine to give him a track and encourage him to read the Bible and research about Jesus on his own. Be prepared to talk about Hell if necessary. You’re not condemning the person to Hell. You are simply teaching the truth about what the Bible says—Hell is real, it’s a place of torment, and unbelievers will be sent there for eternity.
  10. Ask if the person has a Bible of his own and give the person a Bible if needed. If the person has a family Bible, but not one of his own, or if he has an online Bible only, then consider giving him a hard copy of the Gospel of John or whatever Bible you prefer to keep on you. You can buy cheap Bibles at Bibles in Bulk online or at your preferred store.
  11. Give the person a gospel track and encourage him to contact you with any follow-up questions. I make my own gospel postcard tracks with scripture verses on one side and a gospel explanation on the other. Download text: https://suddenhomesteader.com/shop/
    You can buy premade tracks too.
  12. Engage in passive evangelism by handing out tracks or leaving tracks for servers, and such, as you go along your way.
  13. Consider evangelizing online with videos, Facebook postings, and the like.

A Word About the Word

Many unbelievers will challenge the Bible because it’s been translated from its original languages. To this, I say, no credible English translation of the Bible has ever gotten the gospel message wrong, and in general, there aren’t huge variations between most English translations. The New Testament is the most verified ancient text ever—by a landslide.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ in Simple Points

  • Humans are sinful and destined for an eternity in Hell. We can’t make ourselves sinless.
  • God sent His son Jesus to Earth in a human body to live the perfect life we could not live and to die the death we all deserve.
  • Jesus took our sins upon himself when He died on the cross. Jesus was buried. God raised Him from the dead three days later.
  • Jesus ascended into Heaven where He reigns at God’s right hand. He will return to reign on Earth as He reigns in Heaven.
  • When a person believes that Jesus alone is Savior, His soul is reborn—made sinless—and He is sealed by the Holy Spirit for the day of Jesus’ appearing, the day when we receive our resurrection (immortal) bodies.
  • In Christ, we are a new creation—body and soul.

If you’ve been a Christian for more than three years and have read the Bible at least once, you have more training than did the disciples when Jesus commissioned them to bring the gospel to the world. You’ve been under the tutelage of the Holy Spirit for as long as you’ve been saved, and you have the New Testament in your Bible–something the disciples didn’t have at the time.

If you’re new to the faith, read the Bible and evangelize with others for a while.
