Persuade Men

2 Corinthians 5:11 KJV Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.
 
What a joy it is to have the hope of heaven. Our life in heaven will be for all eternity. For those who are lost, it is quite another story. Those without Christ as their Savior will spend eternity in hell. This is what is referred to as the terror of the Lord. The fact that the lost will spend eternity in hell ought to motivate us to share the Gospel with them. We should do everything we can to persuade people to trust Christ as their Savior. It is not a matter of how good they are or if they are religious. The issue is do they know Christ as their Savior. The truth of hell ought to motivate us to persuade people to be saved.
