During the month of July 2018, we are reflecting on our attitude towards the unsaved. We define the unsaved as everyone who yet never confessed that Jesus Christ is Lord. So they must be told about Jesus' love and His might to save. We want to start telling those we know and replicate the not-so-difficult steps the followers of Jesus Christ took to bring people to the Savior.
Andrew first brought his brother Simon to Jesus Christ.
"Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, was one of these men who heard what John said and then followed Jesus. Andrew went to find his brother, Simon, and told him, "We have found the Messiah" (which means "Christ")." John 1:40-42. Thus, he brought his brother Simon to Jesus Christ.
Samaritan Woman brought people in her community to Jesus Christ
She was unaware that the "stranger" with whom she was communicating at the well side was the Messiah. After she found out the it was Jesus Christ, she left her water jar, went back to the town and said to the people: "Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah ... (and) they came out of the town and made their way toward Him". John 4:28-30
The greatest gift we can give to those we love, is to lead them to Jesus Christ. We should, for the sake of Christ Jesus, also love our "enemies" too, and lead them to Jesus Christ . Because to know Jesus Christ is to gain heaven and live there happily, painlessly, and profitably, for ever.
Jesus came to this earth 2018 years ago. Here, He died and obtained a free salvation for everyone who would believe in His lordship. He personally told us that no pleasure on earth is worth loosing heaven for: "And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?" Mathew 16:26.
So if we love ourselves, we must not neglect this fact: Hell is real. Those who do not know Jesus as Lord when they die, regardless of their status in this world - rich or poor, will live in torturous hell for ever.
Thus, this month we want to trump the good news of Jesus' salvation to everyone with whom we come in contact, beginning in our community. JOIN US, WON'T YOU?
