Spread His word, save the world...

"I saw the dead, great & small, standing before the throne, & books were opened.
Another book was opened, which was the book of life.
The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books...
If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire."
Revelation 20~12 & 15

How can we sit back & just let this happen??
Everyday more & more people are dying, & little do they know that this will be their destiny.
That they will spend eternity being tortured, with no hope of redemption, no chance of freedom.
Tortured day & night forever with no end.
Everyday, this becomes someone else's destiny.
Not much to look forward to, is it?
Imagine spending an eternity screaming for help & knowing deep down inside that it will never come,
seeking rest, but in turn more torture.
No hope.
Torment unceasing.
No rest or sleep, no peace...
Just chaos and lament as they think about all the oppourtunities that they were presented with, or that you could have presented them with.
Writhing with bitterness because you knew the truth, but were too scared to share it with them, or because you lived the life of a "christian" and was no different from a sinner, and they saw that and didn't want it because it looked no different from the way one would live their life in the world.
Because people care too much about what man thinks, and says.
What does it matter??
Man's opinion is useless if it's of no help at all,
holding us back from sharing the love of Jesus with others.
With the world.
We need to go...we have to.
God appointed us to go out into all the world and tell it about Him and all that He has done, not to be ashamed or fearful of the world and it's lies.
Jesus was unashamed when He was on the cross dying for us, and taking away that shame and fear.
How can we be ashamed to tell of Him and His wonderful unending grace and love?
