Telling People About Jesus

I don’t believe in an errant God. My God’s Word stands the test of time. His prophets foretold events and they came to pass. His Word the Bible can’t be made false. The troubles in this world are not His mistakes, but evidence of the fallen world around us. He is patient. I’m so glad He waited so many years of my life to call me from the darkness. He is long-suffering. His Son died for us while we were yet sinners.

His creation is magnificent. In the beginning he made them male and female. Any alteration of that is a denial of His sovereignty. He gave us the sacrament of marriage, a picture of His Son’s marriage to His bride, His Church, that will happen with His return. Jesus gave us an earthly picture of that sacrament when He said, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning, made them male and female, and said, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” Any alteration of that is not love, but a perversion of His truth.

The end of the Bible culminates in the period Jesus referred to as “The Tribulation” in Revelation 6-19. The Old Testament refers to this period as “The Great Day of the Lord.” During this time, over two-thirds of the world’s population dies by horrific supernatural means at the hands of a just God. Yes, He is a loving God, but He is also a God of justice. Those who perish during that time do so because their sin is still on them. They have not been made righteous by putting their faith in Jesus, who Himself said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and the only path to the Father is through me.”

Salvation is not works based, but is solely faith based, and only by faith in Jesus who paid the price for the sin of those who trust Him. This is why when Paul says in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NKJV) “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Paul also follows with:
1 Corinthians 6:11 (NKJV) “And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”

God’s first concern is not for our health, wealth, or even happiness. It is for our obedience, and through our obedience we will find joy in all things – through Him. We are all sinners in need of the saving grace offered through Jesus. So shouldn’t we tell people about Jesus and how they can be saved? Yes! The alternative is just awful. We are compelled to share the Gospel of Jesus.
