“One  day  the  poor  man  died  and  was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s side. The  rich  man  also  died  and  was  buried. And being torment in Hades,  he looked up and saw Abraham a long way off, with Lazarus at his side. “Father  Abraham!”  he  called  out. “Have mercy on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of this finger  in  water  and  cool  my  tongue, because I am in agony in this flame!”     Luke 16:22-24


In  this  well-known  parable,  the  rich  man  can  see  into  the  blessings  of  his  acquaintance  in  heaven from the torment of hell.  His cry for help was denied.


As  I  mediated  on  this  passage,  a troubling thought came to me.


After I am safely tucked away in my eternal home, who might be looking at me and crying from hell?


Who could I have told about the good news of Jesus – and didn’t?


Did I live before everyone who knew me in a way that would cause them to want to follow the God I follow?


Did I faithfully use my resources so that  the  gospel  could  be  preached  to  all  nations?


Is their anyone…a family member…a neighbor…a co-worker…who might cry out.

“Why didn’t you tell me?”


Expect to see lives transformed by the Gospel in our services every Sunday!
