The world is eternally lost and hardly knows it. Some people are aware, but most men don’t care. It’s a serious thing to leave this life unprepared to meet one’s Maker, yet not enough folks are thinking of their existence after death when it’s too late. Some openly flaunt the laws of God and others foolishly bow to idols to insult the Living God. Who is going to stand up for the Truth and tell the world about the True God? The Psalmist said,
“2 Sing to the Lord, bless His name; Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day. 3 Tell of His glory among the nations, His wonderful deeds among all the peoples. 4 For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised; He is to be feared above all gods. 5 For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the Lord made the heavens” (Psalm 96:2-5).
Are Christians personally convicted to tell the Gospel to the world? It’s called “good news” for a reason. We sing in our worship a song called “Will you not tell it today?” The third verse asks,
“If the souls all around you are living in sin,
If the Master has told you to bid them come in,
If the sweet invitation they never have heard,
O will you not tell them the cheer-bringing word?”
Jesus said to His disciples to “preach the Gospel to all creation.” Because of the blessings I have enjoyed as a Christian, I pray to see an opportunity today to do just that, to proclaim the glory of God to a lost soul.
