INSPIRING DAILY DEVOTIONAL ® … Snatch others from hell
Text(s) for today: Read Eze. 3:16-21 ; Rev. 22:12
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Jn. 3:16 KJV
Bible makes it clear: whether someone would go to heaven or be in hell depends on what we Christians do about it today. In order words, our activity or inactivity especially, can easily lead someone to heaven or hell.
God has already done his part by sending Jesus to die for us and by making the Holy Spirit available for us; now God is looking up to us to do something about the salvation of our world. What are you doing to (help) snatch others from hell?
“When I say unto the wicked, ‘Thou shalt surely die,’ and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul (i.e. you have saved yourself from God’s judgment) Eze 3:18-19 Praise God!
This means it’s not an opinion to point others to Jesus – it’s a responsibility. Apostle Paul tells us more:
“… for necessity is laid upon me (i.e. it’s a responsibility), yea woe is unto me (i.e. I’m doomed), if I preach not the gospel!” 1 Cor. 9:16
Beloved, the time for soul-winning is now! If you’re a pastor or church leader or even an executive of a denomination, you have to work extremely hard to win more souls unto the LORD. You should effectively do the part the LORD has given you. If you don’t, one day you’ll account for your stewardship before God and you’ll have to answer for your laziness, apathy or your inactivity.
Don’t remain quiet – talk to your room mates, course mates about Jesus. Don’t be one of those folks who would do every thing with their room mates/ course mates (eat together, share jokes together etc.) except to invite them for Christian service or even talk to them about Christ Jesus.
Spend time regularly praying for your mates who are stubborn and haven’t heeded your warning yet. As you don’t give up in prayer, you’ll be able to win them over to the LORD.
Remember, the value of one (single) soul cannot be compared to the value of every thing in the world combined (Mk. 8:36). The time is speak out is now – start from today!
Prayer & Confessions (pray out loudly)
Lord I receive courage this day to warn all those around me – to proclaim the gospel of the kingdom to them BOLDLY. I declare I make use of every advantage/privilege you’ve given me to make you glorified every where I go, in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
