I speak to you of Eternal Life often, because it is the most important goal in life to obtain. Without it everything in life you may strive for is meaningless–futile. For what does it profit a man to obtain the whole world, but lose his soul? I speak of it to you often, even though you may have already obtained it, because I want you to grasp the enormity of even one soul that is lost. It is so easy to receive Eternal Salvation and then just move on and forget that there are others. Others who depend on a kind word or direction to show them the way.
Have you ever been on vacation or visiting a strange city and found yourself to be lost? How relieved and grateful you were when a kind stranger showed you the way. They took the time to care for you.
Take that time for another. You may not be the one to lead them into salvation, but you may lead them to it by connection along the way. I use many to accomplish a task. I use many to lead a child home.
Give your time.
I count it all as righteousness–I count it all love!
“For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.” Luke 8:25-26
“Although he was a Son, he learned obedience through what he suffered; and being made perfect he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him.” Hebrews 5:8-9
“And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who has not the Son of God has not life.” I John 5:11-12
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me; and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” John 10:27-30
“When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left. Then the King will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee? And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'” Matthew 25:31-40
“He who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor; others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.” John 4:36-38
