One of the biggest questions in life is: Where do we go when we die? I bet you can sit down with any a group of people and ask them this question, and you’ll get answers ranging from, “I don’t know,” to “I’ll go to Heaven because I’m a good person.” The responses to this question may vary, but there is only one right answer. And God loves us so much that He actually wrote down the answer for us in His inspired, inerrant Word, the Bible.
When we read the Bible, we discover the solution: Where we go when we die depends on whether or not we have put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ for our eternal salvation. Those who do not put their faith in Jesus will be shut out from the presence of the Lord forever. What a terrible thought! But that’s clearly what it says in 2 Thessalonians 1:9.
On the other hand, Romans 10:9 says, “That if you confess with your mouth, ’Jesus is Lord’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” So why don’t you invite your friends to coffee? Ask them this ultimate question about where we go after we die. Then discuss these verses and show them how to find lasting hope.
