Reaching Out

I Own the Fence Part II

Last week we learned to warn our friends and family who are on the fence about Jesus Christ, that Satan owns the fence, and those who sit on it. Let’s dig deeper:
All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world…’” Matthew 25:32-34
Satan accuses everyone, but the Lord decides where each of us goes for eternity.
Question #1: Are you on the fence? Do you have some secret sin in the depths of your soul that you just won’t give up for the Lord? Perhaps you are attracted to some non-biblical spiritual beliefs that pollute your soul with lies of the enemy and dulls your spiritual discernment.
George Barna from Arizona Christian University discovered that:

* While 176 million American adults identify as being a Christian, only 6% actually hold a Biblical world view.
* 72% argue that people are basically good.
* 71% consider feelings, experiences, or input of friends and family as their most trusted sources of moral guidance.
* 64% say that all religious faiths are of equal value.
* 58% believe that a person can earn their way to heaven.
* 57% believe in karma.
* 52% claim there are no moral absolutes that apply to everyone all the time.
Question #2: Do you have family, friends, or acquaintances who are on the fence? We have a short window of time to reach them with the love and truth of Jesus, so please don’t wait any longer, for we are not guaranteed tomorrow.
