It’s quite funny how God works sometimes. The undertone of this devo was going to be quite different, but a moment before submitting it I got a call from a good friend and after a 30 minute conversation I decided to change this devo.
About 4 weeks ago me and a group of friends starting witnessing in our local shopping malls, just talking to random people about God and asking them if they know Jesus and if they would go to heaven when they die. It is a lost easier than you might think; we got chased away by security only once so far 🙂 But I guess it comes with the job. I live in a relatively good neighborhood with plenty of churches, so I initially expected to find two, maybe 3 people that don’t know God. Surprise, surprise. Of about 40 people have spoken to so far I have found THREE people that had a relationship with God. Less than 10 percent. There lives about 2 million people in the city where I live, and I heard some stats that only about 8% of the people in my city actually attend church on Sundays. Now if I am optimistic and say that every person who sits in church knows God, then it means that more than 1.8 million people around me will burn in hell when they die. Now, this puts me as a Christian in a very difficult situation. If I believe what I say I believe, that is that every person who does not believe in Jesus Christ will burn in hell (John 14:6), why am I not running the streets warning all who is lost? Do I really love others as commanded by Jesus Christ (Matt 22:39)? Do you understand the predicament? If we do not warn others of the pending judgment, do we really love them? Believe me, as I have learned, very little people reject Jesus on knowing the whole truth, most of them know only half truths and heresies as projected by the media, or fake christians”. Most of the people I speak to listen intently and I can see in their eyes that they see something they never have.”
