It Is Amazing…So Do Something About It

I shared the gospel with a young guy over lunch yesterday and after I finished reading through several passages in Romans, I stopped and asked him what he was thinking. He said, “Wow! That’s amazing!”

I said, “I know. Do you want that?”

He said, “Yeah, I just don’t think I’m ready.”

What? Seriously? He had just heard the greatest love story of all time and didn’t think he was ready to accept that kind of love.

We live in a country where there is no sense of urgency about anything except for our own selfish gain. What about you? Do you get it? Do you get that while you were still a sinner, Christ died for you?

Go, sell all you have. Deny yourself. Take up your cross and follow Him.
