Endurance with a wayward friend takes incredible faith and a depth of love only our God can give. Lackadaisical church go-ers (believers) have taught their brothers and sisters to turn their backs on the unsaved, out of the way; the ones God is calling, but they have not answered, or ignorantly don’t understand their need for Him. In these exciting times we must not, I repeat, must not give up, or into the lie that the unsaved are not salvageable. We were once them! Evil, selfish having no desire for God, but God showed his mercy and grace and shed the light of truth in our hearts, changing us forever. What makes us different from those that are filled with sin, besides Jesus? Nothing more than Jesus.
Why don’t we want to share the glorious blessing of the Gospel? Why do we hog what God has done in our lives? Why do we refuse to be confrontational in regards to sin and the affect of it on the individual, on families, and on eternal fate?
Jude 1:22 & 23 ESV And have mercy on those who doubt; 23. Save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.
We have a responsibility.
