Our business is to present the Christian faith clothed in modern terms, not to propagate modern thought clothed in Christian terms. Confusion here is fatal. – J. I. Packer’
Day 5 – “Where am I in terms of Evangelism?”
- Matthew 28:19-20
- Jude 20-23
Your best life now? If this is as good as it gets things are pretty bleak. We must have an eternal perspective to appreciate all that is in this life now, but only as it motivates us to tell others about Christ with the confidence of the life that is to come. That life is eternal!
It is easy to get caught up in living in the now, building our own little kingdoms on earth. So much so, that we lose sight of the bigger picture. That is to preach the good news of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, and then to make disciples out of those who respond…teaching them to observe the things that Jesus commanded.
Why is this important? In doing so, in the same manner as God saved us, we will see others snatched right out of the fire.
Oh Lord, help us to always have an eternal perspective and to keep the reality of hell ever before us. May we be motivated, not out of fear, but out of a love and appreciation for you…that you saved us, and a love and appreciation of others…that they might be saved as well. In Jesus name…amen.
