People Are Lost without Christ!

. . . Love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:39

Have you ever been lost? Being separated from the people you're with, even for a few minutes, is scary! There's another way a person can be "lost." People who never receive Jesus Christ as their Savior are lost in sin. Because they are sinners, they are separated from God forever.

People who are lost are not part of God's family. They don't have God's peace when things go wrong. They never feel the joy God gives to His children. They don't have the assurance that God will answer their prayers.

When lost people die, they are separated forever from God. They will never be able to be with God in the beautiful place called Heaven that He has prepared for those who love Him. Instead, they will go to a terrible place of suffering and punishment called Hell.

People who have never trusted the Lord Jesus as their Savior may not know they are lost. That's why it's important for you, as a Christian, to tell them that Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven. Jesus said, " . . . No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6). Is there someone you can talk to about Jesus this week?
