We Need To Be 2

Someone has said, “Thank God I am not what I used to be.  Thank God I am not what I am going to be.”  So many people are just slaves to so many different things.  I think it was Martin Luther who said, “Free at last.  Free at last.  Thank God Almighty I am free at last.”

We come in contact with people every day that are bound by sin.  Do I or do you take the time and make the effort to do anything at all about it?  Only you and I can answer for ourselves.  God knows, so we might as well be honest with ourselves.

The Apostle Paul exhorts us in Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”  When we do not reach out to others and share the gospel with them it is show us that we are ashamed.  Don’t be ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I still remember a time I had an opportunity to witness to someone and did not.  God forgive me!  You see, the thing is that God wants us to spread the news of salvation.  This leads me to next thing we need to be.

We need to be an evangelist.  In God’s word an evangelist is described as a preacher of the gospel.  Not every man, woman, boy or girl is called to be a Pastor.  It seems to me that we are all called to be an evangelist.  I do not mean that we all book evangelistic meetings in Churches.

What I am talking about is that we take every possible opportunity to share the gospel with others.  The gospel is the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ.  Fewer and fewer people will listen and hear the gospel.  They don’t what to be told they are sinners and that they (of all people) need a Saviour.  Sadly, it is true though.  We need to share the truth with others.

We must tell them they are sinners; but, there is a Saviour waiting to forgive their sin and make them His child if they will turn from their sin and receive Him as their Saviour.  It is so simple that people cannot “get it”.  Too many people want to “do” for their salvation; but, Jesus has “done” what needs to be in order for us all to be saved.  Are you?

So, how are you doing?
