You Shouldn't Read This
…unless you intend to do something about it! You see, the Lord Jesus Christ allowed Himself to be crucified to erase the penalty of your sins. If, after reading that, you are preparing to throw this folder away, uninterested, you should not have read it at all!
Neither should you read…
“But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
“But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Yes, it would be far better if you had never seen this than, having read of Christ’s death for you, to turn casually away…
“Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God?” Hebrews 10:29
And rejecting Christ.
You will go about your daily work tomorrow, if you live, acting as though God were not, as if Christ had never died for you or anyone else; His Name mentioned only in the curses you invoke on the weather, bad drivers, or your business associates.
When you die your grief-stricken family will call in that Gospel preacher you so successfully avoided and try to make a liar out of him. For he will be expected to murmur a few pleasant words about your sterling character, your civic pride, your ability in the business world, and how you have gone on to your heavenly reward...when he suspects, and YOU KNOW that you are in HELL!
No one in hell would hesitate to give everything he once owned on earth for the opportunity you now have to believe on the Christ this folder has presented – to receive as a free gift God’s salvation.
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
Why not repent of your sins and accept Him, right where you are NOW! And prove that, after all, you should have read this.
