Take today’s next step: If you had a chance to share the Gospel today, what would you say? Not sure? We can help with that.
“The wages of sin is death.” (Romans 6:23)
The headline caught my attention: “New law lets drivers warn others of speed traps.” The story went on the explain that flashing your headlights alerting oncoming drivers that police are “lurking” on the roadside will no longer be illegal.
It reminded me of a spiritual parallel that Satan is “lurking” along our life’s pathway ready to pounce on us and it never has been illegal for us as Christians to warn others of oncoming danger. Satan’s charge is far more than a monetary fine and points on our license.
Paul explains it so simply in Romans 6:23. In other words, without the saving grace that comes through Christian salvation, we are eternally condemned to eternal suffering with Satan. It can’t get much more simple than that.
Unfortunately, in this multi-cultured politically correct world many Christians act as if it is wrong to warn others. They don’t want to offend others. If you found a cure for cancer, you would shout it from the rooftop to save the lives of others.
Why are we not excited about sharing the opportunity for eternal life with the God who made us all?
All law must have sanctions. Without sanctions, it would be only advice. It is therefore essential to the distinctive and inherent nature of law that it have sanctions. The sanction of sin is death. It is not a suggestion or advice. It is the law.
How diligent are you about sharing the Gospel with others? Your witness could have immense consequences to the lives of thousands. I am reminded of the great movements throughout history that have begun with a handful of people, many with a sole person.
What our world most desperately needs today is not to be solved economically, scientifically or technologically, but rather morally and spiritually.
Make it a point to flash the lights of God’s Word to all along the way. Tell them that that Satan is “lurking” and ready to pounce. Warn them of the impending danger of worldliness and the healing of salvation that comes through giving their heart and life to Christ. Who knows, the third Great Awakening could begin with you.
