Their seems to be an epidemic in the church I have seen it for years but yesterday was brought close to home,
Those who call them self’s Christians who are afraid to stand up for the name of Jesus, those who think it better to not tell others the truth of Christ and what He has done for them, those who would rather be loved by the world then to see the world saved from hell,
Christ said if you confess me before others I will confess you before My Father.
I think that this lays in the area that my get them to the point that they will hear the that Christ spoke in Matthew 7:23 “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'
This epidemic has even affected pastors and their families, but then Christ also said that even the elect would be deceived.
If you have excepted Christ in to your heart than call Him Lord and don’t be afraid or ashamed to stand up and say ‘I am a follower of Christ Jesus He has saved my sole and is willing to do the same for you, go to Him and repent of your sins, ask to be forgiven and except the forgiveness then go and tell the world of Christ His love for them and His free gift of salvation.
If you are holding back the truth from a non-believer or a believer who is walking in sin, you are holding back your love for them, and Christ told us in Matthew to love to show His love to the world.
Mathew 22:39 “The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.'
Mark 12:31 “The second is this, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.' There is no other commandment greater than these.”
Romans 13:9 For this, “YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, YOU SHALL NOT MURDER, YOU SHALL NOT STEAL, YOU SHALL NOT COVET,” and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.”
Galatians 5:14 For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.”
Jams 2:8 If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law according to the Scripture, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF,” you are doing well. If you really love Christ and have love for your neighbor you will want to share the love of Christ with them.
Don’t hold back, give them the opportunity to either except the Lord God or reject Him let them make that choice don’t make it for them.
