A pastor who is often a special speaker at our church, travels with a business card that asks, “Who Cares? If you die and go to hell, who cares?”
Right on his business card he answers this tough question with 7 answers:
# 1 – God cares: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 (NKJV)
# 2 – Jesus cares: For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost. Matthew 18:11 (NKJV)
# 3 – All people in heaven care: I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance. Luke 15:7 (NKJV)
# 4 – All saved people care: And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” Revelation 22:17 (NKJV)
# 5 – All people in hell care: That he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment. Luke 16:28 (NKJV)
# 6 – I care: For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. Romans 1:16 (NKJV)
# 7 – Do you care? If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 (NKJV)
Today’s TEA CUPP: My friend, after reading the answers to #1-6, I hope you will answer a big “YES” to #7! God, Jesus, the saints, the sinners, including me, all want you to follow Jesus. Please join me in confessing Jesus as Lord and Savior.
Dear Jesus, I believe in You! Please be Lord of my life. I believe You died for my sins and God raised You from the dead. I ask for your forgiveness. I look forward to eternal life with You in heaven. Please help me to live each day for You from this day forward. Thank you, Jesus. I love you! Amen.
A very happy and blessed Easter to you, dear friend!
