Why do we worry about telling others about Jesus? Why do we make sacrifices to go tell others the Gospel? Why do we go around the world and live in more
difficult circumstances to tell others about Jesus?
It doesn`t make sense to many people, but it does to us. Why?
Let me remind you of three simple truths:
Christ died for everyone.
Hebrews 2:9: But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
The offer of salvation is available to all. Everyone has the opportunity to accept Christ’s gift of salvation. He died for every man and woman all around the world.
People must hear this good news in order to be saved.
Romans 10:17: So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
People get saved when they put their faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior. How are they going to believe if they have never heard? People must first hear the Gospel before they will believe and accept it. If they never hear, they have no hope.
People who never hear will not escape judgment.
Romans 1:20: For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse)
People who never hear the good news are still accountable to God.
The creation reveals to them who God is. It shows them that they should obey and glorify God, but they, like everyone else, are sinners and decide to go their own way, refusing to obey and glorify God. Therefore, they are without excuse.
So, why do we worry about the world? We have the message people need to hear in order to be saved, but billions have never heard it. They will never know about it and will die and go to hell unless we tell them. That is why we tell others about Jesus! That is why we worry about the world!
