Why Should We Share the Gospel?

There is such a point as too late. I am sure everyone reading this has seen the horrifying consequence of the absence of God in someone’s life, so I will spare you the photos.

Dr. Phau took my friends visiting from Texas and I to the morgue the other day. Luckily for us, there was enough room for all the bodies to fit in the freezer that day (usually they are piled up on the floor). She showed us the body of a man who had been stabbed to death, and then her staff took us around the corner into the autopsy room where they showed us his dead mother laying on the table. She had poisoned herself after hearing her son was dead. There was no hope left in that room. It was horrible. There is such a thing as too late.

If there are people in your life who are suicidal, take it serious. Don’t just encourage them to get help, tell them about Christ and tell them that their life has purpose. Don’t put it off because you fear that they will judge you as religious. There is such a point as too late, and if they die not knowing Jesus, that is it. No hope.

…OK, I guess I cannot leave a blog post on such a sad note. So I’ll give you an uplifting conclusion with some pictures:

Seeing this tragedy moved my friends and I to take courage! We went to the tribe that is feeding this morgue and share Jesus with them. We did a medical clinic, evangelism, and are now in the process of setting up means to disciple them. Now, that ending is that a little better, isn’t it? The gospel brings hope! Please pray for these people.

    Elizabeth, thank you so much for that reminder. sometimes we take the Gospel for granted and we never should. I am going to be sharing this with my youth group tonight. I pray for you each time your post hits my email. Hope the driving is going well.
