23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Surely seeking to be tolerant and politically correct in the great scheme of life seems trivial compared to the truth that we are all sinners and fall short of the glory of God.
Surely, keeping this truth from those who need to hear it is far more offensive and destructive.
We are too careful to share the truth of the gospel because we don’t understand the gravity and severity of the consequence of sin.
Many proclaim to know Christ, but have never told someone of the necessity for them to receive him as Lord. Many are content with going to church for some religious experience and feeling warm and good and somehow accepted. This appeases their minds.
When we were first grafted into the Tree that is Christ, when we were grafted and made a part of his trunk, we became living branches. John 15.
We therefore, if we are truly part of hIm, will give fruit. For branches that bear no fruit are pruned off the tree. These are cut off and burned up as waste.
Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
Being kind is not just letting people continue in their sin.
True kindness lies is telling someone the truth in order to spare them the trgady of death.
We have all strayed from the path and Christ in his divine mercy has afforded us the great privilege of being forgiven, restored and co partakers of the glory that is bestowed up on the children of the King. These are only, those who has surrendereed their lives to the sovereignty of Jesus Christ.
The wages of sin for surety, is our our death. This means eternal separation from God. This indicates damnation and a lost eternity. This means hell and torment.
Because of our wayward hearts we were dooomed to a lost eternity….
But Grace was given, mercy came, hope was birthed and new life was given for our pardon. We were given the oppportunity for reconciliation with God.
Now instead of a doomed future. Now in place of shame and guilt and deception… now we have been given the gift of eternal life.
No, we did not earn this access. It was Christ Jesus that has been interceding for us. His virgin birth, death and resurrection as granted us the opportunity to become children of God. Without accepting Him as Lord and Savior we would be lost.
He is worthy of all praise and honor; for He is truly gracious and he has placed us on a journey for the purpose of growing us, equiping us and moving us to be witnesses of his grace.
Oh, instead of death we have been given life. Life that can begin here and stretch beyond eternity’s door.
Such good news must be told. Such good news must be shared. It must be shouted to all who will listen.
It may seem to some as a ridiculous, foolish religious outburst. Others may believe we are narrowminded and old fashioned. To others they may think we have no compassion for telling others a harsh truth.
But what if we consider the truth this way?
Going down a road.
There is a stop sign before the entrance of the highway of life. You have just learned that the connecting bridge to the highway entrance, after a huge winding turn, has collapsed. You know how that, anyone headed in that direction will certainly fall into their death for the connecting bridge is high above a section where there are rocks and the ground is far below them.
What would you do?
Would you not block the path?
Would you not attempt somehow to intervene? You woud possibly jump, scream, call others around to help you stop the oncoming vehicles from meeting their sure death.
You would be compelled to try to stop them. You would do this regardless of who they are.
Today, I stand at this point. I cry out to you, don’t fall, there is a path that leads to death. Stop! You can be saved. Let’s go together on to the right path that you may be saved.
Jesus is the right path. He is the road that leads to salvation.he is the only way. Any other detour will bring you to your demise. Come be saved.
The Bible tells us, that, “That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.”
Jesus is that light of the world. He is that true path that leads us away from our certain demise. He is the one who said, ” I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the father but by me.” John 14:6
He is the one standing, shouting, attempting to get your attention. He has “loved you with an everlasting love.” Jeremiah 31:3
He is the precious Son of God we ho gave himself as a sacrifice for your Redemption. His desire is that you escape the destination you are going toward. He wants to offer Salvation, forgiveness of sin and Newness of Life.
He will bring you to a life of victory and purpose. Not fear and death.
Won’t you Stop? Beware and turn in the Right Direction? Please Come.
We warn because we love. We warn because we care. We warn because as believers of the truth, we have a responsibility to stand un the Gap.
May you heed the warning. May you come and know Christ Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour.
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
