Start Dispensing the Medicine!

“It is better to burn quickly and melt many souls than to burn slowly and melt none.” – Sundar Singh
One of the most troubling statistics I ever read had to do with personal evangelism. Basically, the study showed that more than 90% of professing Christians never share their faith with an unbeliever, let alone lead another person to saving faith in Jesus Christ.
Imagine for a minute that you have discovered the cure for cancer. It is fool-proof and works every single time it is administered. It also costs you absolutely nothing to produce this miracle drug.
And yet, despite knowing that you have the ability to save millions of lives every year, you decide to keep the formula a secret. You refuse to share it with a single friend, neighbor or relative… even though you can see and hear them suffering all around you.
Instead, one by one, they die agonizing – and very preventable – deaths.
Unconscionable, right? I mean, who in their right mind would do such a terrible thing? Sadly, the answer lies above, in the study that I cited in the first paragraph.
As believers, we possess the cure for the world’s sin disease. That antidote’s name is Jesus Christ, and anyone who repents of their sins and places their faith and trust in Him will be spiritually healed for all eternity.
So, what do you say? How about making a New Year’s resolution to start dispensing that soul-saving medication today!
