I am at a point of fullness and tears this morning! I watched a video this morning by Francis Chan that talked about how Peter did not feel worthy to be crucified right side up so he asked to be crucified up side down. I think of the awesomeness of the Lord Jesus Christ and I think to myself....please Lord, let me be more like You! I repeated this over and over this morning till I was in tears!
What will we do for Him today and really every day this week? Will we go to church today and sing four songs, drop a dollar or a check in the plate then listen to a message partially or fully sleeping through it? Will we think sing "Just as I am" and leave "just as you were"? I think of the 18 and 19 year old that no longer have a choice on where they will spend eternity. From what I have heard they both were gang affiliated. One has been in my sessions in the Durham County Jail before. I have not seen the picture of the other one yet to see if I knew him. I was at both murder sites yesterday with a sick feeling in my stomach.
Have you shared your faith with anyone in the past week? Month? Year? If not, doesn't it matter to you that people are dying and going to hell everyday??? Statistics say that 1% of professing Christians share their faith on a daily basis! I couldn't stand to not share it daily! I think I would explode not releasing His goodness and what He can do for people! At 5 something this morning I was sharing on Facebook with a young man I know from a youth residential treatment center that I once worked in. I called him out on some language he was using and it ended with him saying that he wanted scripture to help him cleanse himself for Jesus! Pray for Dante!
I will attend the funerals of the two that have died this week and most likely hear that "they are in a better place". I will hear the cries of love ones and friends. I will most likely hear some of the devil's music that helped them reach their fate. I must be there to minister His truth! I can not for a second stand by and continue to let these young people and others perish to eternal hell where they will be in torment for ever and ever! The devil is doing a much better job of destroying lives than "professing Christians" are a winning souls for JESUS!
Does anyone really think that they can stand before a RIGHTEOUS GOD and have Him be pleased when they have not spread His GOspel? When they have not made disciples? Will your hour or two in church today be enough for you? It won't be enough for HIM! This country has made a mockery of His Word and the way He wants us to live our lives! Please, if you are not sharing your faith start! It doesn't matter where it is at that you do it. Just do it! Eternity is on the line for so many!
