Don’t let them live without God ·
So this is what I say and what I said in the Lord, it is that you must no longer walk like the pagans, who walk according to the vanity of their thoughts. They have the intelligence obscured, they are foreign to the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their hearts: (Ephesians 4:17-18).
Our opening verse gives us the image of the one who is not born again; the state of his spirit before God, a description very dark indeed. Ephesians 2:12 says, ” remember that you were in that time without Christ, deprived of the right of city in Israel, strangers to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.”
How someone can he live without God? Such a person is dead in the trespasses, in sin and walk according to the prince of the power of the air, that is to say Satan. It’s terrible! This shows us how important it is to continue to preach the gospel and to intercede for the lost souls. Ephesians 4:18 declares that they are foreign to the life of God. Ephesians 2:12 says that they are without hope.
Those who are not born again are “children of wrath”; this means that they are established for the judgment of God (Ephesians 2:2-3). This should make you think of your friends, relatives, colleagues and associates who do Not know Jesus; it is your responsibility. Don’t let them die without God, because if that happens; they will go to hell and this is not the will of God for everyone. The Bible says “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).
You are a custodian of his message of salvation for those who are in your world; don’t shut up. Preach the gospel like never before. Intercede in prayer for the lost souls. That the purpose of your life is to ensure that the sinners in your world don’t die without God; they do not continue to live without hope. Share the gospel with them. They know that God already put eternal life within their reach now; therefore, they must not be wallowing in sin and guilt. They know that the righteousness of God has been revealed and she is freely made available to any person who receives the gospel and affirms the lordship of Jesus Christ.
Dear Father, I thank you for giving me back effective in the ministry of reconciliation. I pray for those who in the world who have not yet known Jesus, so that the light of the glorious gospel shines in their hearts, destroying the chains of darkness, and they meet today at the call to salvation, which is sent By The Spirit, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
