Paul Washer

We are so caught up in not offending anyone and yet the Bible says that the gospel divides families. The truth is that we need to be reminded of where we come from and where we are going. Remember the first time the gospel convicted your heart? You knew you were a sinner and on your way to hell. You knew that only the blood of Christ was sufficient and you begged God to forgive you and come into your heart! Have you gotten so far away from the true gospel that when we hear something like the video below that we are offended because it reminds us of something we’d rather forget? Take a look and remember where you came from! Ask the Lord to convict your heart and remind you that you were a rotten sinner headed to an eternity where the worm doesn’t die and the fire is not quenched. In turn, seek to help someone to the Lord and then disciple that person. Take up your cross daily and follow the Lord Jesus Christ!

Hat Tip: Thank you, Pilgrim, at Defending Contending!
