Truth Received but not Shared

You’ve probably heard or participated in debates about whether the heathen who have never heard the gospel will be saved. In answer to that, the British preacher Charles Spurgeon wrote, “It is more a question with me whether we who have the Gospel and fail to give it to those who have not, can be saved.”

Pause and contemplate that statement. The more important question is whether those who have heard and received the truth but not shared it can be saved.

Now, we’re saved by grace, through faith alone. Nothing we  do—no works—could ever save us. Faith alone saves us—faith in what Christ has done for us. But because of the wonderful things Christ has done for us, we should be motivated to tell others the greatest story that’s ever been breathed.

The story of salvation is the story for the brokenhearted, the prisoners and the captives. There are people in your life who desperately need to hear this story of hope. You know the story; the story of good news is your story! Tell it!

Pit Stop Point to Ponder

Christ rescued you from darkness and death and gave you a new life as a child of God. Think about the people in your life who also need to find new lives. God put those relationships in your life so that you can partner with Christ in calling them back to God.
