Live, Love & Preach the Gospel.

I'm taking this post (nearly) verbatim from Desiring God.  I have referenced the blog post below.
What Did Jesus Come to Save Us From?
Here's a bit of Q & A:

John 3:17, “God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”

Why did God send his Son? _______________

John 3:36, “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.”

Does not obeying the Son (e. g., when he commands us to trust him) bring us under God’s wrath or leave us under his wrath? _______________

So what did God send his Son to save us from? _______________

Is this a felt need among the unbelievers you know? _______________
What are the implications for the content of preaching and evangelism?  _______________

If these thoughts, based on the truths found in scripture, aren't a compelling enough reason to not waste your life or not waste opportunities to speak and live the truth....then I don't know what will be.  We have been called to live, love and preach the gospel of Jesus if people's lives depend on it.
