Have you ever thought that there are people in the world that are impossible to reach with the gospel of Jesus?
Look at the truth of the Bible in Romans 1:19 “They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. 20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. 21 Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused.”
God clearly shows us that ALL people anywhere on planet earth have encountered Him! They have seen His creation, they have seen His power, they have witnessed the reality of a LIVING GOD!
Jesus teaches that when we have an understanding of Him it is like having light in the darkness. Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 15 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”
Look at Luke 1:79 “to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace.”
We are all in darkness until the light of Jesus is given to make the mystery known to us and our hearts. Have you heard the expression, “what is the meaning of life?” or “why do we exsist?”
These are the normal longing and cry of every human being’s heart, to know their creator. Many religions have been birthed out of this pursuit. Many billions of followers have been caught in this pursuit to the point that Christians may at times feel hopeless in trying to reach them with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Let us not forget Romans 1:21 that says “…as a result, their minds became dark and confused.”
Just because people have followed a certain belief their whole life doesn’t mean in anyway, shape or form that they will not recieve Jesus. In fact, I think it is the total opposite. I have found that people of other faiths are easier to win to Jesus than even Atheists at times as they are already pursuing and seeking spiritual truth. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. So those seeking truth will know it when they see it!
Jesus therefore needs YOU and me to be vessels to speak and show His truth on the face of the earth. He will do this through His signs, wonders and miracles. When these miracles are shown and the truth is spoken, it doesn’t matter what your past belief system has been…TRUTH HAS SPOKEN!
That’s the thing about truth…it’s UNDENIABLE! How incredible Jesus is and how powerful is His love for ALL mankind of all faiths. So let us not sit back feel like certain people or cultures are a “lost cause”, let us fearlessly engage them and show the undeniable truth that is JESUS and the light will draw them out of darkenss!
Are you blessed?
