Live Without Regret

26 I declare today that I have been faithful. If anyone suffers eternal death, it’s not my fault, 27 for I didn’t shrink from declaring all that God wants you to know. ~ Acts 20:26-27NLT

Paul was confident that he had done all he could do. He lived his life with no regrets. How many of us can say the same? Today’s Church is silent because of Fear. We’re afraid of being ostracized, persecuted, taunted, fired, or hurting someone else’s feelings. The Truth has been silenced, and where it isn’t completely silenced, it’s perverted. We take bits and pieces of the Scripture and preach a cherry-picked message that will tickle the ears of our listeners. But what good are we truly doing? The saint is still asleep, and the sinner is still lost.

I heard about a man who would get up all hours of the morning to pray for his congregation. Why? Because according to him, “I have 8,000 souls I must give an account for, and I know not their condition.” How many of us take the people put into our lives as seriously as this man? Each person we come in contact with is a soul that we have the chance to save. A soul that we have the chance to plant a seed in or to harvest.

If we look back on our lives, can we truly say that we’ve done all we could have done to witness, guide, lead, disciple, and pray for the souls we’ve come in contact with? If we are to give an account of all that we did on that final day, what’s more important: Speaking the Truth and making disciples of every nation or bowing down to Fear and remaining silent? Don’t let Fear keep you from spreading the Word. When we give into Fear, Fear then takes control and takes us farther than we wanna go. The silence of the Church only breeds darkness in the world. Light can only be shown by those who have the Light living within them. Therefore, shine the Light of the world into the world. Be like Paul and live your life with a clear conscience.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Live Without Regret.
