Someone may say, well I am preaching the Gospel: God hates sin, He is angry at you. Repent or burn. Change your ways or you will burn in hell. My friend this is not the Gospel Jesus commissioned the Church to preach. If you are a preacher who preaches like this, am glad to let you know you yourself are not born again. It is not preaching against sin that will lead sinners to repentance, it is the goodness of God that leads people to repentance. (Roman 2:4).
God has forever settled the sin issue; people aren’t going to hell because of sin. The sins of the entire world have been paid for. God is no longer holding peoples sin against them.
The position of God with the world has changed; God is reconciling the world to himself through the preaching of the gospel. But people are not going to get saved until they put their faith in the finished work of Christ. The sin issue is once and for all settled.
For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And He gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us.
We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God! (2 Corinthians 5:19-20). Paul was an ambassador for Christ! His message was one of peace. God had paid the price for sin; He was not at war with sinners. Sinners could now believe and be saved, what a tremendous message!
Heaven and hell are real, live for Jesus.
