Jesus said that salvation belongs to those who enter the kingdom with burning zeal (Matthew 11). The zeal is to forever and immediately leave all sin, live holy before God, and devote the rest of one’s life to Jesus Christ. Yet in America, a preacher may press the gospel time after time and never see a passionate response.
Do you make excuses for your lukewarmness, as if Jesus would believe the lies of the flesh? Do you think every Christian is like you? The fact is, Christians in China, India, Vietnam, and Indonesia suffer imprisonment, beating, and death for the sake of Christ. Leave your excuses behind and get to Jesus, while there is still time to repent.
