Comment:

There is only one way into the Kingdom of God, and that way is through Jesus. No one can be saved without having received Jesus, and without being saved, you cannot belong to the Kingdom of God.

John 14:6
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Those who have not received Jesus as their Savior are part of the Kingdom of darkness. This is true, regardless of whether an unsaved person is nice or not.

Unsaved people do not have the Holy Spirit within themselves. That means they lack God’s guidance, and this in turn means they do not have the same opportunity to act in the right way like a believer. Therefore, they are not limited to stick to what is right, and the goal for them will be to get the most and the ‘best’ out of each situation, and the evil spirits are happy to ‘help’ them. At first, this can lead to success, and it can be easy to look up to those who are successful, but success is not the criterion.

Instead of envying successful people we need to love and pray for the unsaved. It can actually be extra hard for a successful unsaved person to see his need for Jesus.
