The View from the Lifeguard's Chair - #3387
The price of failure, of looking away, of your fear could be a life Jesus died to save. Somebody has to tell them. And God has assigned you. Don't let anyone be lost on your watch because no one was watching, because no one went in to save them.

The Race To Save Lives - #3733
Every day they live without Christ, they move one step closer to an eternity without Him. But you're there. And you have the serum. You have nothing more important to do with the rest of your life than to deliver life to those who will die if you don't.

Life-Saving Teamwork - #3722
God has made each of us who know Him both rescuers and the enablers of rescuers. There are some lost people God has positioned you to help go to Heaven. And He has given you resources to enable some of those He's called to put their whole life into His rescue mission. According to Philippians 4:17 , when you give to keep them on the front lines, their fruit will be "credited to your account" in Heaven.

The Delivery Crisis - #2815
It could be that the place where you work, where you live, where you go to school has no one delivering Jesus to them right now. God has paid with the life of His only Son for the eternal life He wants to give them and the people you know are so in need of a Savior.

The Names in the Foundation - #5903
We all know what a world-changer Simon Peter turned out to be because of someone who loved him enough to bring him to Jesus. There's someone like that in your life; someone who will probably never make it to Jesus if you don't bring them. And God is trying to plant their name deep in the foundation of your heart, so that person becomes your own personal spiritual mission.

Too Many Fans - #5891
Jesus' Great Commission to get out His Gospel can't be delegated to a few spiritual daredevils we call missionaries. The Great Commission is always first person singular! Jesus intends for the cost and the risk of rescuing a dying world to be equally shared by all those who belong to Him!

The Great Lighthouse Shortage - #5837
How can we be content to spend all our time with the already rescued when we are living surrounded by a sea of dying people? How can we say that we're following the One who came, as He said, to "seek and save what was lost" and not be doing that with all our heart? If you're following Jesus, I'll tell you where He's going. He's always headed for a sea of lost people.

The Open Door On a Locked-Up Heart - #5753
A lost person may resist your invitations to Christian meetings and reject your Christian beliefs; but random acts of love and kindness are usually a key that unlocks even the hardest hearts. As Jesus carried out His rescue mission here on earth, He wrapped His message in concrete acts of love - touching the leper that no one would touch, going to dinner with "sinners" that the religious people avoided, going to a neighborhood where racial barriers said He should never go.

The Word That Terrorizes Hell - #5732
For 20 centuries Satan has been trying to censor the name of Jesus. Don't go along with his godless crusade; don't be ashamed of the One who died publicly on a cross for you! Don't be afraid to talk Jesus. The devil is afraid you will, because that name is a spiritual bomb that can destroy everything he's planning to do.

First - a Christian perspective
Christians are to be careful and wise in coming to conclusions. It's always important to listen to both sides of a story--not just to the first person to speak.
