Seeking God for the Gospel
For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9
Often times in our mailbox we receive a flyer with the information of a lost child. It always grabs my attention. It typically reads, “Have you seen us?” and it always has the picture of missing children. My heart is drawn to the parents whose hearts must be breaking because their children are lost and not found.
In the next 365 days, over 75,000 Tennesseans will die. In the next 365 days, over 2.5 million Americans will die. Tragically most of them will go into a Christ-less eternity. The Good News is only Good News if it gets there in time. The fact of the matter is that for those in Christ, we are going to be in Heaven because someone cared enough to share the Good News. Have we cared enough to tell anyone else? Will anyone be in Heaven because of us? We are the only Christians some people know. God has intentionally placed people around us so that they might hear the gospel!
Spend a few moments today considering your obstacles to sharing Christ. Be encouraged! God loves us turn obstacles into opportunities for Him to display His awesome power. Today is THE day! Invite someone to join you for Easter @ Salem tomorrow!
