James 4:8 Come close to God, and God will come close to you.
I must share the Gospel. Jesus carried a burden in His heart for every sinner. His weight was so great that He willingly suffered on the cross and He died for me... He died for all of us. He knew it was the only way for us to prevent eternal separation from God. He is the Only Way. So as a Christian, I follow His lead.
If my heart is not burdened for the lost, can I really claim to be seeking the heart of Jesus Christ? To be following Him?
It is essential to give people a chance of acting on the Truth of God. ~ My Utmost For His Highest, Oswald Chambers
It's not easy for everyone to share the gospel. But God didn't call us to "easy" life. He calls us to obedience. When He gives us something to do. He is faithful to give us what we need to complete the task. But we cannot sit in silence and watch those in our world die without hearing the message of salvation in Jesus Christ. - Not if we are living the life of His disciple.
The responsibility must be left with the individual, you cannot act for him.., it must be his own deliberate act. ~ My Utmost..., Oswald Chambers
We cannot compel anyone to believe. That is not our responsibility. Our responsibility is to inform them salvation is only found through faith in Jesus Christ.
Never allow a Truth of God that is brought home to your soul to pass without acting on it... The feeblest saint who transacts business with Jesus Christ is emancipated the second he acts; all the almighty power of God is on His behalf. ~My Utmost..., Oswald Chambers
To choose to act is a decision of the will for both the saint and the sinner. It is the sinner's responsibility to "Come," when she hears the Truth is hers alone to make. It is the saint's responsibility to "Go and tell."
The power of sin and death in the world is not defeated by our acts of obedience. It is defeated because our act links us to the redemptive power of God through Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 3:6 God is the One Who made us preachers of a New Way of Worship. This New Way of Worship is not of the Law. It is of the Holy Spirit. The Law brings death, but the Holy Spirit gives life. (NLV)
