The truly righteous man attains life, but he who pursues evil goes to his death. Proverbs 11:19
At times I feel bad for those who don’t know Christ. No only do they miss the joys of living a fruitful, abundant life here on earth, but they miss the glories of being with Jesus in heaven as well. The Bible says in Romans 1:20 that in the end “they are without excuse,” but it still pains me to think of the fate of the lost.
Are we doing all we can to point them in the right direction? I understand that the Holy Spirit woos and draws and convicts them, as He continues to do with us.
And here’s a sobering question, when others look at you what do they see? Are their perceptions of Godly things clouded by your political convictions? Do they see anger and complaining and bitterness in you? Have you asked someone you trust about these things? You might be surprised at the answer.
I just want to be sure that I, by my actions and attitudes, am not hindering others in their search for the Kingdom.
