The Salvation Of Your Loved Ones
"For I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’" Luke 16:28 NKJV
The destiny of everyone who dies without Christ is eternal damnation. Let me state it clearly; they will spend eternity in the Lake of fire that burns with fire and brimstone. There, there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Listen, you cannot be genuinely saved and be unconcerned about the salvation of your loved ones. The mere fact that they are loved ones means that you would do everything necessary to ensure that they do not perish. To watch them perish is proof that you do not love them!
Our loved ones will not go to hell in Jesus name. But it's not enough to pray for them, we must preach the gospel of salvation to them and intercede earnestly for them until everyone of them is saved. Brothers and sisters, the time is short; we must do what we've got to do now with a sense of urgency. God is not willing that anyone should perish; neither should we.
