MORNINGTIME 2184
 
To execute judgment upon all, AND TO CONVINCE ALL THAT ARE UNGODLY AMONG THEM of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. Jude 1:15. Let's clarify a way this verse can be read,  "To execute judgment upon all, (every man, woman, and child who ever walked this earth, who was born in sin), AND TO CONVINCE ALL (the lost sheep who have yet to be brought into the fold of Christ) THAT ARE (still) UNGODLY AMONG THEM  (the goats who will never be saved because of their hard hearts) of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him (Christ)". We all started off as dead men walking straight into Hell. Many lost sheep are still out there living ungodly (they're LOST) lifestyles, waiting for someone to share Christ with them as they turn from lost sheep to found sheep, saved, and in the Fold of Christ. With such a mass of people out there, how can you tell the lost sheep from the goats? YOU CAN'T, only the Lord knows their hearts. How do you save the lost sheep living in sin? YOU PREACH CHRIST TO EVERYONE AND THE HOLY SPIRIT DEALS WITH THE HEART. Can a viscous murderer get saved? I hope so, right Saul? I mean Paul? How many more Saul's are there just waiting for the Lord to touch them? A LOT. Who's going to reach them? YOU AND ME. "Looking for" the lost will be dirty work They live on the back roads and behind the hedges where most preachers won't go, it's too dirty. "You bring ‘em to church, I'll save them" doesn't cut it, because we are to go out to them and Preach the Gospel. As a sheep to the slaughter, our Safety is in the Lord's Hands. We live, we die, and it’s up to the Lord. When you understand that one, you can go anywhere the Lord sends you with NO FEAR. You still may end up dead, but you'll die in Obedience. That's better than living in disobedience. Preach Obediently, and, Be Blessed.
