Beautiful

People want to know {when}.

"Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.  Heaven and earth  will pass away, but My words shall not pass away.  But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the son, but the Father alone." Matthew 24:34-36


People want to know {the cost}.

"For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast." Ephesians 2:8

 People want to know {how}.


"That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation." Romans 10:9-10

People want to know {who}.

"For whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved." Romans 10:13

People want to know {if He can be trusted}.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful." Hebrews 10:23

People want to know {if redemption is real}.

"And for this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant, in order that since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance." Hebrews 9:15
