Once we get to heaven I can’t imagine ever leaving! So let’s win the lost now so that they also will join us together in heaven with Jesus!
Can you imagine stepping down from heaven to be rejected, despised, humiliated, and to be subjected to many sorrows and much grief, ultimately being beaten having your flesh ripped off of your body, until you were unrecognizable!
Would you give up the comforts of heaven, the close relationship with a loving Father, and the peaceful presence of the Holy Spirit to seek and to win the lost?
That’s right, “To seek and to win the lost!” This is what we are called to do while we are still here on this earth. Better that we do this now, because we will certainly not want to step down from heaven and leave behind what we desire so much!
And many will forsake this, especially for the worst and most vile person that has committed heinous crimes in this lifetime, who will be there to volunteer for them? To win them to the Lord? Will it be you?
This is what Jesus has done for all of us!
Jesus left heaven and came down to the earth for us all, even the worst of us all, even the most horrible soul that exists, because he loves us! As we read,
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” Romans 5:8, 9
Jesus paid it all! All to him we owe! Sin has left a crimson stain, but he washed it white as snow!
And your heart for the lost is…?
