In this age of radical individualism, people are looking for sincere connections. Be one of those friends who is sincerely right in doctrine, belief, and relationship with the Lord. You may be their only hope for eternal life. Here are some harsh realities about them:
1. More are going to hell than heaven.
Mt 7:13-14, 21-23
“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
2. Many of them sincerely believe that they have obtained eternal life, only to discover they are wrong when it’s too late!
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
LESSON - Please engage people around you when you’re out in the community. Not only has Christ commanded this, but people who seem disinterested and self absorbed need you now more than ever.
