The need for everyone to hear the Gospel
April 18, 2011
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
As you think about the great need of our world and the responsibility you and I have to spread the message of Christ, have you ever wondered what happens to a person who has never heard the Gospel? Have you ever considered what is the real spiritual condition of a person who has not heard about Jesus Christ?
On university campuses all over the world, students take classes on comparative religions. And many times it is taught that all religions have the same goal and the same destination. And, therefore, they mistakenly conclude that if anyone is sincere in his religious pursuit, whatever it is, then that person will ultimately go to heaven.
But the Scriptures couldn’t be clearer on the issue. Today’s passage says that all men—Muslims, Hindus, atheists, Christians, and those of any other belief—are without excuse when it comes to their sinfulness before God. Because of that, the only way to know God and spend eternity in heaven is to place your faith in Christ.
This shouldn’t discourage you and me. In fact, it should motivate us to proclaim the Gospel until the whole world hears. So make it your life’s mission to introduce as many people as possible to Christ!
THERE IS NO SALVATION APART FROM FAITH IN CHRIST. SO MAKE IT YOUR LIFE’S MISSION TO SHARE HIM WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.
