If we have no one’s name to call out, is the reason because we are ashamed to tell others of what happened to us at Calvary?
Let me ask you this. Today is the Super Bowl. Do you know anything about the teams, the players, the sport at all? Maybe not this one, then, how about Clemson? Know anything about them, their players and their school? Maybe we just need to change the name of the school. Let’s say, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee or any other team or sport? What I am saying is, that we are willing to, and most often become, very excited talking about sports of any kind but what about Jesus? Has any of us been saved by Dabo, or a college team or a sport in the Olympics?
Where has your eternal life come from? To whom do you owe your allegiance? “Those who accept Christ’s identity, who He is, will also embrace His passion, sharing the Good News with others.” For us, sharing the person of Jesus Christ, who forgave our sin and has given us a home in heaven when we die, is supposed to be the Passion of our life!
God knows the real you! But, if you are not following Him and sharing who He is with others, He desires that from you for He commanded us to do just that.
Charles H. Spurgeon once said, “Great numbers of persons have no concern about eternal things. They care more about their cats and dogs than about their souls.” I wonder, is that true? Do we care more about the animals we have than the people around us who will never make it to heaven because we failed to say to them, “Come and See?”
