The Truth Everyone Needs To Hear!


Most of the time when someone dies their grieving relatives want so badly to believe that their loved one is now enjoying life in heaven. It doesn’t matter they had any faith at all.  They create these lovely scenarios of paradise with which to comfort themselves. In their view everybody gets a piece of the old pie in the sky. They are wrong.

 

Here is the truth: "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved" Acts 4:12. That name is Jesus Christ. There is only one way, and he is it. “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”  The people in your life need to know this and the Lord has put it in your hands to tell them.   Is it going to be an easy task?  No, if it wasn’t an easy task for Jesus should it be for you.

 

People are resistant to change they tend to push back when they feel pushed. Have you ever tried to get someone to change a behavior that they don’t believe is destructive? It seems impossible to get someone to quit doing drugs, quit drinking, or quit wasting money on lottery tickets and the casinos. In the same way, it may seem impossible to ignite someone's cold, dead faith.

 

But it can happen. Your God wants you to know that it is possible for you to influence positive change in another person. Your words and actions can make a difference.  "My brothers, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring him back, remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins" James 5:19-20.  How many people has God put in your life that are headed down a destructive path?  Are you content with letting them continue down that path, while you have the knowledge that could save them? 

 

This is my Prayer:  God help me to recognize the people in my life that need to have a relationship with you.  Lord give me the strength, courage, and faith to present them with the truth in love.  Jesus use your testimony in my life to help others come to Your saving grace.  In Jesus name, Amen.
