Leave No Stone Unturned!

You have heard the comment 'leave no stone unturned'. Bring it into a 21st century evangelical context and it might read a little like, 'leave no SPAM unreturned'.

A recent comment received on the blog has reminded me again of how many opportunities there are to share the gospel with people on a daily basis! They are literally falling into your inbox!

What a wonderful opportunity to witness to people from all over the globe, by a simple click of the Reply button.

I took the following eye analogy from the Way of the Master guys and kind of bundled into an email response with the subject line of: Would you sell one of your eyes for $1,000,000?

This is not the be all and end all! You may have used a different approach, more scripture references, less words... but the main thing is that the message is clear: Jesus Christ was crucified because we are sinners & salvation is a free gift to all who repent and believe!

What if someone offered you a million dollars for one of your eyes? How about five million dollars for both of your eyes? Would you do it? Would you spend the rest of your life blind for any amount of money? Probably not. Why? Because your eyes and the gift of sight are precious to you.

It has been said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. The following statement is also true. “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?” Is not your soul of far greater value than even your eyesight?

To learn the answer to life’s million-dollar question, please take a moment to carefully read the following:

Are you good enough to get into Heaven?? Would you consider yourself to be a good person?? Let's find out!

Have you ever told a lie, stolen anything, or used God's name in vain? Jesus said, 'Whoever looks upon a woman to lust after her has committed adultery already with her in his heart.' Have you looked with lust? If you have done those things then God sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart! The Bible warns that all who are found guilty of doing these things will end up in Hell! Will you be guilty on Judgment Day? That's not God's will. He sent His Son to suffer and die on the cross for you! Jesus took your punishment upon Himself -'For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.' Then He rose from the dead and defeated death. This is serious folks! Give it some thought! Please, repent (turn from sin) today and trust in Jesus with everything you've got, and God will grant you everlasting life. Then read your Bible daily and obey it!
