ROAD-KILL?

 
"The gate that leads to damnation is wide, the road is clear, and many choose to travel it." —Matthew 7:13
 

Look into the faces and the hearts of the many people traveling on the road to damnation. Some of them may even be your family members, friends, and co-workers. Do you love these people? Do you love them enough to expose yourself to rejection and persecution from them?

If you saw someone driving on a road which abruptly ended at a cliff, if you saw car after car go over the cliff, if you heard the people in these cars screaming on the way to their deaths — would you love enough to try to stop the cars driving on that road to death?

There is something worse than death. There is the "second death" (Rv 2:11): damnation. There is something greater than life. There is new and everlasting life in Jesus Christ. Do you love people enough to tell them the truth about death after death and life after death? If we don't love enough to share our faith in Christ Jesus, do we have faith in Him and are we ourselves on the road to death?

Life is short. Live for Jesus. Share your faith.

 
Prayer: Jesus, my Life, You are my only Way (Jn 14:6). You are the Truth about life (Jn 14:6).
Promise: "O God, we ponder Your kindness within Your temple. As Your name, O God, so also Your praise reaches to the ends of the earth." —Ps 48:10-11
Praise: St. Cyril's lack of tact and diplomacy caused him difficulties in the beginning of his term as archbishop of Alexandria. However, God made great use of Cyril's personality by raising Cyril up as a champion to defend the faith against heresy.
