Slow Suicide, Like It Or Not, Thats What We Do.

There is something very important that so many billions of people are not catching onto in this world today. I’m not gonna hem haul around about it. There will be no soft spoken message, or apologies for hurt feelings. There is going to be brute honesty, and love…don’t forget the love…so here we go.

The simple, horrible, and disheartening fact is that without Jesus Christ in our lives, we are simply slowly committing suicide. Without Jesus Christ we are alone. There is absolutely no purpose in life. If we deny him the love that he deserves, if we walk through this life with absolutely no meaning, then we are simply waiting to die. There is absolutely no reason for us to live, laugh, or love. You see Jesus is it. He is life. He is love. He is everything.

Now of course this message is not so much intended for people who are walking with, and I mean truly walking with Jesus. That does not mean we should ignore it though. This should be motivation, this should be the jump start in our hearts…the words that inspire us to lead…to lead the billions of lost to the one and only savior Jesus Christ.

You see we are Christians. We were made to share Jesus Christ with those who do not know him. We were created to spread that gospel around the world. It does not matter what field you have been called into. It doesn’t matter if you are a minister or a banker. It doesn’t matter if you work at McDonald or a high school. We are models of our lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We can never do enough. We can never bring in enough people. There is no quota on life. This is how we need to spend all of our eternity. Jesus loves us. He loves us so much that he would die for us. He loves us so much that he would come to this earth and die the most brutal death, just to prevent us from going to hell. That is a caring God. That is a caring savior. Jesus is so perfect. We absolutely have to share him.

Without us so many people will be condemned. They will spend the rest of eternity in eternal damnation. This is something we can prevent! We have been equipped! We know the story. We know what Jesus did to prevent this horrible fate! All we have to do is share it with somebody that doesn’t know. All we have to do is make a friend and tell a story that can change someone’s eternity…This won’t just change their lives, it will change their everything…it will change their entire existence. Jesus has given us the power to do this. We can do this…We have to do this…we have to.

Don’t let your friend slowly commit suicide. Don’t let them be one of the billions that end their time in this world, just to start an eternity in hell. I don’t know if you have noticed or not, but this is truly on my heart. This is something that has plagued me since I started to seriously pursue Jesus. He has laid this on my heart, and I pray that he lays it on yours too. This is so important, but I know that we can’t spend so much time trying to get people to walk with Jesus that we forget to walk with him ourselves. I also realize that all we can do is bring the idea to these people. We can in no way make them follow Jesus. If they decide to do this, it will not be because of us. All we can do is reach out and share. The rest is up to them, because Jesus is soooo more than willing…I just pray that we all try a little harder…that’s all it takes…
