What does a man’s soul mean to you? How much does your friends and family mean to you? If I told you that more than 33 trillion souls would burn in hell, would it matter to you; would you spread the gospel then? Whether it is 33 trillion or 1, you should feel led to tell others about Jesus Christ before it is too late. Think about the amount of people in the world that could be saved if every Christian stood up and spread the gospel. The amount would be great. One day every man, woman and child will have to give account to God for the things he did and the things he failed to do on this earth. Stop worrying about popularity or what someone will say about you.
A true Christian will try to help others know the truth and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ before it is too late. A person who loves others will do whatever necessary to help bring a sinner to repentance and to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. No man knows the day or the hour of the Lord’s return. No man knows the day or the hour when they will die. Hebrews 9:27 says, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”
What does a person’s soul mean to you? One day every man will stand before God and “then every one of us shall give account of himself to God” (Romans 14:12). You will have to explain why you didn’t spread the gospel. He will reward those that did share the gospel to others. Revelation 22:12 says, “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” A person who wins souls is wise and can cover a multitude of sins.
Matthew 16:26 says, “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell (Matthew 10:28).
Isaiah 5:14-Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.

Revelation 11:18-And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
