Reach your community for Jesus this Easter
This Easter, people need hope. This Easter, people need to know where true security lies. This Easter, people need to know they are loved and valued.
I received this unoffensive and people pleasing lingo in my e-mail box today. It's part of a Christian publicists Easter drive (CPO). It pretty much sums up were allot of the professing church is at the moment.
I have an alternative....
This Easter, people need to be saved. This Easter, people need to know they have broken Gods law, sinned against God and his wrath abides on them. This Easter people need to know without repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ they are doomed to destruction in a place called hell.
This is the message I shall be preaching this Easter and every Easter whilst God gives me breath. But that's not loving you say! But is it loving to hide from someone the truth of their prediciment before a just and righteous God and to withold the only means by which they might be saved? The Writer of Proverbs agrees, "A true witness delivers souls" Proverbs 14:25.
