Where's Hell?

So the question was posed to a group of people today, "Do people really believe that there is a hell?"  My answer was quick, "They believe in Satan, so I would think that they believe in hell."

But now as I think about it, I would like to revise my answer.  Yes, people believe in a real hell, they just don't care about it.

Revelation 21:8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

Well, the Bible is fairly clear about it.  There is a hell.  

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Revelation 20:15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

The Bible is fairly clear about who is going there.  

You might say, "Well, I know Jesus.  I asked Him to forgive me of my sins.  I'm going to heaven.  I don't have anything to worry about."  Nice.  But who are you taking with you? 

Don't you know people who if they leave this world right now, they won't spend eternity in heaven, but in hell?  I suspect you do.  But what are you doing about it?  Well here are a few things you can do. 

#1 Pray for them.  

#2 Live the Word of God in front of them. 

#3 Tell your story about your relationship with Jesus. 

#4 Invite them to join you at church. 

You may not be able to do anything about the crisis' that is happening in our world.  But you can do something about the crisis of faith happening in your friends and families life.  God is your biggest supporter, and if you take the step of faith to try, He will back you up every step of the way. 

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, please help me to reach my friends and family with the Gospel of Jesus.  AMEN
