Eternity has only two..
Who you know determines where you spend eternity. If you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you will spend eternity with Him, and ALL others who also know as Savior..
But if you don’t know Him as your Lord and Savior, eternity in hell is what you have to look forward to. Hell, the fire and brimstone preachers would say, is a place of eternal torment, a place of everlasting fire.
My friends, God does not want anyone to spend eternity that way… and neither do I
For years, I’ve said that it’a easier to share the gospel of Christ with someone who knows their life is a wreck than the church-going, Bible believing soul who knows of Jesus, but has yet to experience His saving grace in a way that leads to their repentance and salvation. This is a battle to be left to the Holy Spirit.
As I continue to prepare myself for the ensuing battle I believe is before us, I am learning to pray differently for those churched people who don’t yet know the Savior. My battle isn’t one of words.. at least not with them… but my battle is with the spirit world… my weapon is the Holy Spirit.
Father in Heaven, I humbly come to you in the name of Jesus, who is my Savior, and ask with the Power of His name that You would reach those I love with the Holy Spirit… that the Holy Spirit would go before any place I do, and prepare hearts to be convicted, for people to come to the place where they know they need a Savior. I pray that they would seek You and find Salvation through You.
Break the bonds of the chains they are in, give them freedom in You and You alone, and transform their lives in such a way that they have no other choice but to tell others what You’ve done for them.
In Your Holy Name I Plead.
