THE PEOPLE SPEAK – Letter showed path to God

I really appreciated Francis Goodnight’s letter in the Phoenix on April 11. “Accept Jesus Christ before it’s too late,” that’s a warning that needs to be heard more today than ever before. I thank God for an individual that loves Christ and people enough to have the boldness to tell it like it is.

1 John 12:16 states three things of the world that keep us from the father. The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life. The world passeth away and the lust thereof, but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.

We all as believers must take a bold stand to warn others that don’t know Christ as their savior. Too often Christians are fearful to acknowledge Christ to others, but we have what they are searching for that don’t know him. Let’s be bold to give them the good news. The word states “If we’re ashamed of Christ here on earth, he’ll be ashamed of us before the father.”

I feel there’s not a person that wants to miss spending eternity with Christ in heaven, rather then eternity in hell’s torment. Don’t gamble with your soul. The bible states “today is the day of salvation.”

This statement was made by a minister, “Christ has millions of believers in torment today.” It’s those that failed to choose life with Christ while on earth. Be a believer today.

I thank God for freedom of speech in America and my daily prayer is it will remain. Let’s use it wisely telling others boldly about Christ’s love from them and his plan of salvation. Use it to lift others up, not to tear down and destroy others.

Christ died for all, he loves all. Let’s all be wise.
