I’m not going to sugar-code anything here, I’m just going to be real here. The truth, if preached properly the way God would want you to preach it, should be offending to the majority of people. I realize I may not be the most popular person for doing this, but I’d rather be hated for telling the truth than being loved for telling a lie, or the popular idea. Let me remind you brethren, we aren’t here for popularity, or status. The Bible says if you love the things of the world, the love of God isn’t in you . There isn’t really any middle road. There is the kingdom of Heaven, and then.. there is Hell. To understand Hell, we must first understand our wickedness, and the price that Christ had to pay as he took our spot. The Bible says that God hates sinners “The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers.” (Psalm 5:5) many people, unfortunately take lightly this reality. We have to be brutally honest with ourselves, though, because if we aren’t willing to do that, then we won’t realize our need for salvation. Let’s face it, we are a sinfully deprived people, and we need Christ’s sacrifice on the cross to redeem us. We deserve Hell, because we have sinned, and not just against one another, but against our very creator, God. Don’t miss it. God has sent his only son to die on the cross for our sins that we might not perish, but have eternal life (John 3:16). Don’t miss it, salvation is here now. Jesus Christ took the spot of sinners like me and you on the cross. We aren’t saved because of what some Roman soldiers did to Christ, we are saved by what Christ did for us on that cross. We are saved because God poured his wrath out on his only son. We can’t be a Christian without knowing both God’s love, mercies and wrath, it can’t be ignored. Hell is real. Hell is necessary. What are you doing to disciple the world and lead others to Jesus Christ?
