…are our family, friends, neighbours, and co-workers ready to face eternity?
Have we ever said anything that would let them know we have the answer to eternal destiny?
Do our lives give them evidence that our faith is real, or make them think Christians (and Christianity) are frauds? Are we true, pure, and kind? When we speak truth that is uncomfortable for them, do we have compassion on their discomfort and speak it with gentleness, or do we speak in harshness?
What if it DOESN’T become a world-wide epidemic, if rather than real danger for most of us it is a lot of scare-mongering? Shouldn’t we be asking these questions anyway?
So very true Jon. I’ve been made even more aware of the fragility of life in the last two weeks. I think sometimes we forget that none of us are promised next week, tomorrow or even an hour from now. We lull ourselves into apathy or get busy with the cares of this world–I know I had to some degree. We forget our mission, the mission for ALL believers, hasn’t changed–we are to share God’s love and the “Good News” with those around us and we are to live Christ-like lives so they will be drawn to the Savior. If we love God and share His love for a dying world (and we are all dying, but many without hope of spending an eternity with God), we will want to share the hope we have within us.
