We who have put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ to be our Lord and
personal Savior have received a gift that will last forever. The Lord
saves us from death to life and from eternal darkness and damnation to His
eternal light and joy. This gift is not meant to be kept to ourselves, but
is to be spread to all people sharing with them the treasures that the Lord
Jesus possesses in Himself. He is the gift that we receive when we come to
Him in repentance and in exchange for our sins, He gives us His forgiveness
and peace that surpasses all understanding. If you know of the joy that I
speak of, then it is a mandate on your life to share with others what you
know in your heart is true. (Philippians 4:7-8) (Romans 10:13-15)
I hope you are both challenged and inspired by today's message to share
the gospel of Jesus Christ with all those who don't know Him in truth and
realize that your intervention if accepted will be appreciated for all
eternity by the receiver.
I was standing at the seat of judgment, waiting for my turn
Thinking of the houses and the treasures I would earn
Thinking of how I'd lived my life just as a Christian should
Thinking of how I'd always done what was right and what was good.
I knew that when my turn would come with the Father and the Son
They would look at me and my life and say to me “Well Done”
I knew that I was sinless, and my life beyond reproach
I got more excited as my time began to approach.
But just then I looked around and who should I see,
But the lady that I worked with, just down the hall from me
We always passed each other with a wave and a smile
And when the time would allow we would chat for a little while
We would talk about our jobs, our kids, and various little things.
Our conversations always pleasant and laughter it would bring
Just then she looked up, and her teary eyes locked with mine
And my smile faded when I realized she was in the other line
She began to speak the words that broke my heart in two
It pains me now to remember as I share these words with you.
She said “Why didn't you tell me about the God that you do know,
You went to church each week but never invited me to go?
You never told me of his saving mercy, that he died on the cross
And now it is too late for me and my soul's eternally lost
I see you saved yourself and that you are among the chosen few,
But tell me, couldn't you have made an effort, to try and save me too?”
Just then I sat straight up in bed, my heart pounding in my chest
Thank God it was just a dream, but my spirit still couldn't rest
I realized that I couldn't keep my God a secret among friends
But that I must learn to always share the hope that the gospel lends.
So I encourage you not to wait until it is too late
Go and tell everyone you meet that your God is so, so great!
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men
count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any
should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
2 Corinthians 6:2 “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the
day of salvation...”
Isaiah 55:6-7 “Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him
while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man
his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy
upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.”
2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new
creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
