I oftentimes talk to people who believe that simply being kind is all they need to be in the right with God. Some of these people will, in the same conversation, put down Christians or Christianity in some way. A few of them will even accuse me, a Christian, of being unkind, for explaining to them that they can receive eternal life with God by believing that Jesus died on the cross for them. If you believe in being kind to all humans, then please make sure you’re including Christians in “all.”

To be clear, telling a person about Jesus is the greatest act of love one human can do for another. Kindness is what motivates Christians to go and share the Good News with others. Sure, false teachers have selfish motives for sharing the Gospel. But true, born-again Christians are acting in kindness when sharing Jesus.

Also, please understand that being kind doesn’t make you right with God. Yes, God wants all humans to be kind to each other. That goes without saying. But God wouldn’t have sent His Son, Jesus, down from heaven if kindness was all a human needed to get right with Him.

If you want to be right with God, you must be perfect, as He is perfect. A perfect God can’t be in the presence of sin. You can be the kindest person on the planet, but if you have sinned even once, you’re unfit to be with God. You must be cleansed of your sin if you want to have peace with God. And there’s only one way to be cleansed of sin—Jesus.

God loves you so much, and He wants to be with you so badly, that 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. God raised Jesus to life three days later.

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 and immortal 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 too. Jesus is the Way. Jesus is the only Way! Trust in Jesus today! That’s all you have to do. Believe that Jesus alone saves you from your sins.

I Believe Jesus is Savior. Now what?

Turn away from all sin, the empty pleasures of this life, false religions, and self-made beliefs. Stop trusting in the systems of this world for your security and happiness. Trust God alone.

Talk to God continually in prayer.

Read the Bible daily.

Worship God with other believers.

Try joining a local church, and ask about baptism. Go and tell others about Jesus.

Wait eagerly for Jesus’ appearing, at which time all who are in Christ will receive resurrected bodies.

For far too long, the Church has softened how it talks about Hell. It’s time to tell the truth. Hell is not merely separation from God. The Bible describes it as a Lake of Fire. It’s our Christian duty to tell the whole truth about Hell. It’s a courtesy and an act of love to warn people about what actually awaits those who reject Jesus as the only way to eternal life. God raised Jesus to life three days later.

Yes, when we evangelize, we need to lead with the Good News–that God loved the world so much that He sent His Son, Jesus, to die for our sins. In some situations, however, we must also share the bad news about Hell. We need to know how to do that, in love and with care, but never at the expense of truth.

How to Receive Jesus—Right Now!

Admit there’s nothing you can do to forgive your own sins. Admit you need Jesus to save your soul, and believe. Believe that Jesus took all your sins upon Himself when He died on the cross. 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. God raised Jesus from the dead three days later.

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 and immortal 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 too. Jesus is the Way. Jesus is the only Way! Trust in Jesus today!

I Believe Jesus is Savior. Now what?

Turn away from sin, anger, unforgiveness, selfishness, pride, greed, the empty pleasures of this life, false religions, and self-made beliefs.

Stop trusting in the systems of this world for your security and happiness. Trust God alone.

Talk to God continually in prayer.

When you meet Jesus and you explain to Him that you rejected Him because you don’t like Christians, what do you think He’s going to say? Christ loves His Christians. He bought us with His own blood. We are His beloved bride. How would any groom feel about people not liking the love of his life?

True, some of us Christians are more likable than others, and many people who claim to be Christians are false Christians, which does much damage to the reputation of Christianity. But the fact remains, as prickly as some of us may be at times, we belong to Jesus. He loves us to the point of death and He will go on loving us for all of eternity.

Let go of any disdain you have for Christians. I promise you’ll feel better immediately. And rest in knowing that Jesus will judge His Christians. He will reward His own for what we have or haven’t done. In fact, He’s going to judge the whole world.

In the meantime, concern yourself with how Jesus will judge you. When you meet Him, if you’re in unbelief, no excuse is going to save you. The best thing you can do for yourself, right now, is embrace Christ. Come to Jesus today—this very moment.

Receive Jesus into your life today—this very moment. Admit you need Jesus to save you from your sins and believe He did just that on the cross. 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. God raised Jesus to life three days later.

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 unbelief, self-made beliefs, and false religions. 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. God raised Jesus to life three days later.

I Believe Jesus is Savior. Now what?

Turn away from false religions, man-made traditions, and self-made beliefs. Stop trusting in your own efforts and the systems of this world for your security and happiness. Trust God alone. Turn away from all sin, anger, unforgiveness, immorality, gossip, hateful thoughts and speech, selfishness, pride, greed, and the empty pleasures of this life.

Christians, which is worse, offending someone because you shared with them how they can receive eternal life through Jesus or offending God by ignoring His Great Commission?
