Yesterday I saw a post from one of my friends on Facebook that left me thinking a lot about my witness to those around me that are lost and heading for destruction.
The post was a video and it was called “A letter from hell” about two best friends. One was a Christian and the other was not. The friend that was not saved died in a car crash and was heading for the place of eternal separation from God and he wrote a letter back to his friend to ask him why he had never told him about Jesus. He was his best friend and they shared lots of things but the one thing that could have kept him away from that terrible place was kept from him.
There is an urgency in this matter. We do not know how long each one of us will live. Only God knows that. While we are here lots of people are crossing our paths. Some stay and are dear to us, some go on their way and we might only have one chance. Are we more concerned about small talk or are we telling them that Jesus love them and that He IS the ONLY way to heaven?
Have I forgotten that when the end comes, those that don’t have their names written in the book of life will be in torment for ever and ever? Telling people about Jesus ought to be my priority even if it costs friendships and my comfort zone. I cannot change people’s hearts, that is the work of God in them, but I can tell them about Him and point them to the cross.
As I am here writing this post I am also saying a prayer in my heart, asking God to forgive me for letting so many opportunities pass me by. Most of the time because I am afraid of what people will think of me. It is not about me anyway. It is about JESUS and the salvation that only He can offer people.
In His mercy, may He help me be bold and strong to share to each and every one of my friends about Him.
