How do you witness to someone who thinks they are saved, but you know by their actions and what they say that they are not? Well, that is partially the reason I address my post “To the followers of Christ.” Not all “Christians” are saved, and become harder to convince they need Jesus because they think they already have him. Are you that person? Actions speak louder than words.
There is a portion of Hebrews that scares me and should scare all of us!
For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt. Hebrews 6:4-6
Jesus told us a story about the prodigal son, and at some point in our lives, we have been him. Doesn’t this make you think? Do I want to be that person that crucifies our savior again? Be careful in your actions; don’t make Jesus a victim of your sin all over again. Don’t be the one whipping him and slashing open his skin for the sake of momentary pleasure or a quick buck. Be the Christian you profess to be.
