Reaching Out to an Unsaved World
Reaching Out to and Unsaved World
The Bible says, “The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). Jesus is coming back as He promised, and we His ambassadors have our orders! “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…” Jesus made it clear that before He comes back, He expects us to reach out to an unsaved word—the world He loves (John 3:16; Romans 5:8).
Do you remember the movie Dead Man Walking? As the men on death row would begin their walk to the electric chair, the prison guard would yell out “Dead man walking!” As we stop and observe the people in our family, neighborhood, city, country and world, what do we see? We are surrounded here by men, women, boys and girls who, without Jesus in their lives, are dead men walking!
As a church family, we have the privilege to reach out to those “dead men” with the good news that Jesus does not want them to perish but have everlasting life. For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16
