MORNINGTIME 2071
 
NEITHER IS THERE SALVATION IN ANY OTHER: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12 FOR SO HATH THE LORD COMMANDED US, saying , I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth. Acts 13:47. FOR I AM NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16. Think about this for a minute. When a baby is born, he starts, right off the bat, as a walking dead man. He's going to someday die, and go to Hell. That's the bad news. Now the Good News. The Holy Spirit meets every single person ever born and offers them Salvation. He alone knows ALL the Heart of man, He already knows who will and who won't Follow Christ. So far, He doesn't need any of us to "help" save someone. The Holy Spirit offers a man salvation, (He already knows the eternal outcome), BUT WE DON'T AND WE MUST MAKE OUR OWN CHOICE. It's a legal formality required to stand on our Judgment Day. Each person will stand before Christ and declare, "I purposefully REJECTED Christ, of my own free will", or, "I purposefully Followed Christ, through His Shed Blood straight into Eternity". God Knows Everything, even before time began, AND WE DON'T, WE MUST MAKE OUR OWN CHOICES AND LIVE OUR OWN LIFE OUT FULLY IN THE TIME ALLOTTED TO EACH ONE OF US. Again, the Holy Spirit doesn't need us to "help" save anyone. But He does require us to learn to listen to Him and grow in Obedience. We get to talk to people and testify of what God has done for us, and what He wants to do for them, but the Holy Spirit is the only One Who does the "Saving". We can ENCOURAGE someone TOWARDS Christ, but the Holy Spirit alone, Saves. Preach, Teach, and Talk Gospel to your friends, family, and neighbors, and see where the Holy Spirit takes it. It could be that they "get saved" and you both will, Be Blessed.
