Losing Over Turf - #6318
Maybe you and I have cared too much about our group, or our glory. And while we're building our little kingdoms and our walls, people are dying. We need to get together to make a greater difference. Are we standing on the dock arguing? Or are we all in the river together, rescuing every person we can find? Time's running out!
Too Good To Keep - #6281
Here's my question, "When was the last time that you personally shared what Christ did on the cross with someone who does not know Him?" When was the last time you played a part in changing someone's eternity from hell to heaven? Maybe when you first became a Christian you did. Could it be you've just settled into the comfort zone now? You may be very busy...very busy in Christian work, but you're sitting on the Good News.
The Tragedy of Doing Nothing - #6222
Don't talk to lost people about religion. Don't talk to them about church. Don't talk to them about their lifestyle. Tell them about the Man who loved them enough to die in their place. God put you in their life to give them a chance at Jesus. Please, don't keep walking by their need. You know Jesus. They need your Jesus. Don't let them down. Don't let Him down.
Everyday Stuff, Never Everyday Again - #6170
When you go where you go each day to do what you do, you go on an eternal rescue mission! Jesus put you there so you can take some of those people to heaven with you. Every day, you're there to show by your life the difference that Jesus makes and to capture every God-given opportunity to tell them how they can belong to Him. And suddenly your everyday takes on eternal significance.
Unguarded Beaches - #3016
You may think there's someone better to rescue the people around you, but God put you in the middle of them. This is your stretch of the beach. The people there are your responsibility. Don't leave your beach unguarded. Too many people are dying at unguarded beaches.
Superman is Breakable! - #2402
You've got a terminal spiritual cancer, called sin! No matter how religious, no matter how respected you may be, you've broken God's laws and you've run the life that your Creator was suppose to run and "my way" of living has left you fatally separated from God. The cure requires humility - the admission that you cannot save yourself - and then a trip, not to a dirty river, but to a dying Savior's cross.
Nailing Your Colors to the Mast - #5803
Too many times, you've lowered your colors, but not anymore. Not after what Jesus has done for you. Not when somebody's eternity may depend on you telling what you know. For once, for all, you are nailing your Jesus-colors to the mast so they'll never come down again.
The Shadow that Scares Us - #5798
If you don't belong to Jesus, death is a monster that should be feared. If you do belong to Him, then death becomes just a shadow because death is now your doorway to all that heaven offers you.
Missing Your Mission - #5704
God is trying to open your eyes to the life-or-death emergency that's right in front of you. He's put you on the scene where you could save some lives, where you could rescue some spiritually dying people. As inadequate as you may feel, you're the one that Jesus placed in their lives so you could help some of those folks be in heaven with you!
Dying - a Christian perspective
Dying is part of life. It's up to us to choose whether or not our lives and deaths will be honoring and glorifying to God. In John, Jesus tells Peter how he will eventually die.
