Sometimes God just comes along and has to push a reset button in us in a certain area. That happened to me this week in the area of soulwinning. You know that scary thing where you go and talk to people about Jesus. Let's say that this week, God gave me a definite "RESET BUTTON" in the area of soulwinning.
I received word that one of my doctor's passed away. I was very sad to hear this. This particular doctor was a very nice man and he had compassion for his patients. Now, mind you, I didn't know him very well. I had only been to him about four times, but nonetheless, he made an impression on me. He was serious about his life's work, but there was a definite care for the person he was treating.
However, I am sad because my first thought when I heard he had passed was "I wonder if he was saved?" It made me very sad to not know the answer to that question. Then, the conviction came over me because I had never taken the time to tell him about my Jesus. I went to him for my physical health, but I didn't take the time to ask about his spiritual health. How very sad and shameful of me. I cannot go back and fix this...it is too late.
I am praying, however, that God will help me to, again, have a renewed burden for the people around me and that I will be more conscious to witness to those I come in contact with on a daily basis. It is so important for those of us who know Jesus to tell others. Jesus is coming back and what a sad day for many who are without Him. No hope of Heaven....just very sad. I don't want to be the reason another doctor does not meet the Saviour. I must be more diligent in my efforts to tell others about Jesus.
One day the Book of Life will be opened and I would like to think that there will be names in the book as a result of my going and telling someone about Jesus. Daniel 12:3 states, "And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever." So, this week I am thankful for the reset button God chose to push in my life.
Will you join me in telling others? Will you, like me, ask the Lord to renew or give you a vision for lost souls?
Forgive me Lord and renew my vision!
To you, dear reader, who may not know Christ, please read on:
How to Be 100% Sure of Heaven
1. Realize you are a sinner. Romans 3:10 "There is none righteous, no not one."
2. Realize there is a penalty for sin. Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death."
3. Realize Jesus paid the penalty for you. Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners Christ died for us."
4. Realize there is only one way to Heaven. Romans 10:13 "For whosoever will call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
You can be SURE! Just simply ask Jesus to take you to Heaven realizing that it is only through faith and complete trust in what Christ did on the cross that you can receive salvation. It is not through a church or a religion, but through faith in Jesus and Him alone to save you.
If you would like to trust Christ, Ask Him sincerely from your heart,
"Lord, I know I am a sinner and that you died for me. Please forgive me of my sin of unbelief. I am trusting You Jesus, and You alone to save me and take me to Heaven. Thank you for saving me.
If there is one who prayed this prayer, I would love to hear from you.
From My Heart,
