WAKE UP CHRISTIANS!
THE REASON THAT THE PEOPLE OF GOD ARE NOT MAKING AN IMPACT IN OUR PRESENT DAY CULTURE IS BECAUSE IT IS EASIER TO TAKE OUR MESSAGE TO THOSE WHO ARE ALREADY IN THE FAMILY OF GOD INSTEAD OF TO THE LOST AND HURTING OUTSIDE THE 4 WALLS OF THE CHURCH!!!
We are living in a day and time of GREAT OPPORTUNITIES. I have no doubt that there will be more terrorist attacks here in the United States in the future. Many people have lost lots of money in the stock market decline of the last few years. With the downturn in our economy, many are out of work or underemployed. Now more than ever, people are hurting and looking for answers. We have the only true answer for them, and that is faith in Jesus Christ!
Now, like never before, people will be hurting, lost, and looking for hope. Those who have bought into the lie of satan are hungry like never before for the real TRUTH, that is only found in God's Word. NOW, is a time of great harvest. NOW, like never before in human history, people are tired of the lie, and looking for the TRUTH. NOW IS THE TIME FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD TO STAND UP AND BE COUNTED!!!
The application to your life is simple. For those who don't know Christ as your savior, you have been chewed up and spit out by this world, TODAY IS YOUR DAY. You don't have to hurt any longer, you can find the peace that passes all human understanding in your life once and for all. Pray, ask God to open your heart. If you have not made the decision to accept Christ into your heart and life by faith, the Bible says that TODAY is the day of salvation. Pray to ask God to open your heart, read the words, pray the prayer, and accept today God's gift to you of everlasting life through His son Jesus Christ.
For those who are saved, who know Christ as your Savior, this is a wake up call. The people of God have kept to ourselves for too long. God called us to be the 'salt of the earth," the "light of the world." Instead, we have kept the salt in the shaker and hid our light under a bushel. It is getting late, we only have so much time, and night will soon be upon us. God is calling HIS PEOPLE to come out of your churches and start spreading your salt, and shining your light in this world we live in. There are lost, and hurting people simply waiting for someone to tell them about Jesus, NOT "My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancé."
In his love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
