How many of these people in the picture will be saved?

Dear fellow Christian, this is for you. All around you, people are going to a lost eternity. Without the salvation of Jesus they will not be in heaven.They will perish in the lake of fire, as per Revelation 20:15. Dear believer, God wants you to do something about it.

Generally speaking, the people of God have become self-centred, inward-looking. Activities in most churches today have no bearing on the world outside in terms of taking the gospel message. There are Ladies' Dinners, Men's Breakfasts, picnics, barbecues, conferences, seminars - all for the benefit of churchgoers. Right now you may be sitting back, smug, self-satisfied in the knowledge you have salvation and will go to heaven. That's fine, but what about your workmates, the supermarket checkout assistant, the guy at the garage?

Have a look at the "programs" listed in your church bulletin. Chances are you won't find one which involves going public with the gospel.

The Bible says: "The Lord is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9. God cares about the people outside the church. It is why Jesus said "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15. He did not say sit in the church. We are not saved to recline in a pew and wait for heaven. It doesn't matter what your church leaders do - each of us has to give account of our lives individually to God.

Following are a series of articles designed to help you see what is required, and to show you what you can do - how you can be effectively used by God as an instrument in saving others. Click on each one.
