As much as I wish I could, there is no way I can turn anyone to Christ. That power lies with God and the willingness of each person to respond to His loving invitation. My responsibility is to share the gospel with gentleness, love and respect.
I heard someone say that if Christians really believe in Jesus Christ as savior of the world, as the only way to eternal life with God, and non-belief results in eternity in hell, the most hateful thing a Christian can do is not share the message of Jesus Christ with the rest of the world.
Approximately 155 000 people die in the world every day, approximately 56million every year, most of which will go into eternity without Christ, how could we as Christians not tell people what we believe to be the only way to eternal life? Love compels us to share the gospel (Rick Warren).
Every person in the world bets their life on something. The Atheist bets his life that there is not God; the Buddhist bets his life on Buddha, the Muslim on Allah etc. I bet my life that Jesus Christ is not a liar. I bet my life that when Jesus said that he is the only way to eternity with God, that he was not lying (Rick Warren).
The question is what are you betting your life on and how sure are you that it is the truth?
