Just returned from a quick breather up to Scotland…you know, get some good fresh air before the madness sets in! The weather was lovely and fresh…made you feel alive. Was good to catch up with some friends and session mates and do the general bits an pieces.
I am back, though, with an increased burden for the salvation of my family. They are hopelessly lost…every one of them. They are some of the most unlovely people I’ve ever known in my life, such is the extent to which sin has marred them. They are involved in false covenant to satan – and they don’t know it – through various masonic orders and associations and these things have produce and unhealthy harvest of ugly self-righteousness.
The scripture tells me that God sees them as children of wrath, totally deserving the justice of a Holy God, but in His compassion he sent his Son to save them if they would repent of their sin.
That is serious stuff. I used to dream when I was younger….it was a recurring dream. My mother was being chased and beaten continuously. This dream would return several times. It doesn’t any longer, but as I remember those images, I remember the penalty for sin and I remember with a breaking heart how much I don’t want my family to enter a lost eternity.
God has passed a dreadful sentence for all who remain in sin that can only be avoided if they accept that the ransom has been paid for them through Jesus Christ. Thats the gospel, and its great news. I’m praying that the Holy Spirit will convict them of their sin and that will lead to repentance.
The gospel is offensive. Thoroughly offensive. It’s foolishness to those who are perishing.
To me, its life and I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for the salvation of the whole world….including my family.
Are your family sinking into a lost eternity? What are you doing about it?
