Big Sin Meme

See the original post here.

“If you were to be taken out by one sin (or a couple, whatever) what would it be?” Apparently this can be past tense.

I would say mine would be general apathy towards the unsaved.

When I first became a believer, I told just about all of the non-Christians I knew and was flat out rejected by every single one of them. It shouldn’t have surprised me, but I couldn’t understand how anyone would reject this. I believed in God to some degree all my life. This was also a source of pride in some ways.

I let this shut me up for quite some time. I’m more able to talk to others about it now but I can’t say I have a strong desire to evangelize. I’m also not as prepared as I should be should the situation come up.

I was going to post something on the lighter side also, but I think that would take away from the seriousness of this subject and don’t want to tempt people to comment on the lighter side as a deflection.

1 Peter 3:13-15
Now, who will want to harm you if you are eager to do good?14 But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it. So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats.15 Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it. (NLT)

    general apathy towards the unsavedI think that is something we all need to be mindful off.

    I had a similar experience…when I was born again (7 yrs ago), I just couldn’t stop NOT talking to anyone about Jesus. Anyone, anywhere, anytime.

    I praise the LORD quite a number of them accepted Jesus as their LORD & Saviour. But also many rejected. Some at first showed signs of “born again”, but quickly withered away into greater sins. In some ways I was “stumbled”.

    I still talk to people who are interested to know Jesus (sometimes even if they don’t), but the urge to speak to everyone-anyone has “cooled down”.

    I do wish/pray for boldness to speak/share the Gospel of Jesus Christ…but is it “biblical” to “cool down”?

    is it “biblical” to “cool down”

    I don’t believe so in general.

    Thank you for stopping by and commenting.
