Why Didn't I Tell You


WHY DIDN'T I TELL YOU?
I knew that, like me, you were a sinner in need of Grace. Why didn't I tell you?
I knew that sin, no matter how small, cannot enter Heaven. Why didn't I tell you?
I knew that you were searching, in need of peace. Why didn't I tell you?
I knew that eternity is forever. Why didn't I tell you?
I knew that we can choose where we spend eternity. Why didn't I tell you?
I knew that all roads do not lead to Heaven. Why didn't I tell you?
I knew that if there was any other way of Salvation, Jesus wouldn't have had to die on the cross. Why didn't I tell you?
I knew that Jesus chose to die on the cross for me….and you. Why didn't I tell you?
I knew that you had to accept that free gift which God gave us in order to be saved. Why didn't I tell you?

But now here I am in the presence of God Almighty but I don't know where you are. I was going to tell you tomorrow, but there are no more tomorrows for me or for you. You're not here, didn't anyone tell you? Oh, dear God, forgive me. Why didn't I tell you?
There are so many lost soul's, Remember spread the Word, Share the Gospel
Blessings to All and know you are in my Prayers

Sharon,
A great post. About 7 years ago the Lord impressed me to pray for mine and my husband's extended families. God has answered a lot of those prayers. It's amazing what God will do if we just trust Him and make ourselves available whenever we can to witness. There are still members of Leonard's family (nieces and nephews) that really need to place their lives in the hand of God. At the 4th of July cook out one of his nieces and I were talking about her brother who was such a sweet little boy. They moved to California and he got into the wrong crowd and has been into everything you can think of but as I told her I still believe there is hope. I've witnessed one of my husband's brothers turn from an alcoholic and drugs to serving God so I know it can happen. We just can't stop praying for them.

You have such a strong, sweet heart for our Savior and for people. I'm so glad I have gotten to know you. You inspire me not to give up, God's not through with us yet.
Have a good week-end,
In God's love,
AliceE.

How convicting. It something for all of us to consider. We are here to spread the Gospel yet at times it can be so uncomfortable and hard to know how. I struggle with trying to be a witness to my brother.

Blessings to you, Sharon.

Thanks for reminding me that I am accountable for every soul that I encounter and telling them about JESUS CHRIST. I too am convicted.

Sharon,

Thanks for visiting my blog! I read a few of your posts and they really encouraged me. Praise Jesus for the answered prayer!!! I love to hear stories about answers to prayer! Thanks for sharing. The Lord has been teaching me lately about praying in faith and believing. I don't remember the verse off the top of my head that you quoted but I love it! God has placed in my heart over this last year the ability to believe and have faith and not doubt. Not that I'm perfect and that there is never a time where I may doubt but I love to pray and wait expectently to see God move. He loves us sooo much! We serve an amazing God!!!


Thanks again,
Nicole

Sharon what an awesome way to remind us we are to tell others about Salvation. We are not to take for granted we will have the opportunity to tell someone tomorrow.
Thanks also for sharing in the study with me. I agree with you when it comes to church folks and no one not wanting to do something until you start. We must remember when God give us an asssignment we can't give up and we can't let others take what we know God told us to do. Daily we will most likely experience NLIP i know I do. I am trying to work on those things in which I have power and control because to be honest these days most comes from my own actions.
