The ONE Question! 8/2/15

The ONE Question! 8/2/15

 

 

 

 

Acts 4:12 (KJV)
12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.   
 

 

Its ANOTHER hot, sun splashed day here in McDonough, GA.

 

I am at Mickey Macs enjoying a RARE egg white egg McMuffin and visiting my "old" friend Reggie.

 

Due to my STRICT diet, I am unable to frequent ANY fast food restaurant.

 

Did YOU read and fully understand/comprehend the above SCRIPTURE???

 

"THERE IS NO OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN AMONG MEN, WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED!!"

 

Get that?? "NO OTHER NAME!!!"

 

THE name-JESUS!!!

 

NOT buddha, NOT confuscius, NOT allah, "NO OTHER NAME"!!!

 

I had the pleasure joy/honor of officiating a wedding this weekend.  

 

As I was making a hasty, "stage-left" retreat to avoid eating the prepared wedding supper, (RE:My diet), I was detained by a retired army man.

 

I knew he was an Army man by the cap he wore proudly and as he smoked a cigarette all the while connected to an oxygen tank, he asked me a question,

 

"Sir, what denomination are you?"

 

It was the second time I had been asked this question by the people attending the wedding, most of whom I had never met.

 

"Sir, what denomination are you?"

 

Quickly I replied AGAIN, "I am INTER-denominational-I AM A CHRISTIAN!!"

 

Only this time I added, "I BELIEVE you must be a BORN AGAIN, WASHED IN JESUS' BLOOD AND YOU MUST BE SAVED!"

 

As I got in my car, I only had ONE regret!!

 

I FAILED to ask this ELDERLY gentle men, "HAVE YOU BEEN SAVED, SIR????"

 

He had informed me that he had been baptized, submersed, sprinkled, and Holy Ghost, BUT had failed to confess his Salvation in that ONE Name the Bible commands:

 

Acts 4:12 (KJV)
12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

 

Ya see, 99 and ½ WON'T do!!!!!!!

 

1 Timothy 2:5 (KJV)
5  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;   
 

 

I dare say 99 and ½ per cent readers of this ministry ARE saved/Blood bought believers.

 

BUT perhaps YOU are not and/or are not sure?????

 

OR perhaps someone you know and love are not and/or not sure.

 

WE/YOU and I, are CALLED/COMMANDED to:

 

Mark 16:15-16 (KJV)
15  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.   
 

 

16  He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

 

It is NOT "just" the job/duty of the preacher, deacon, worship leader to "PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE!"

 

Did not Jesus say, "GO YE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

 

YE INCLUDES THEE!!!!

 

As I talked with a mechanic last week, I asked him quietly if he were a Christian.

 

It was easy and painless-just a casual question.

 

He replied, "Yes, he thought/hoped so!!??

 

I quickly asked him, "Are you a man?"

 

He smiled and said yes!

 

I then led him in understanding that being SURE of his Salvation could EASILY be AFFIRMED as easy and quickly as his gender.

 

THIS is that "ONE question" I entitled this sermon.

 

The "ONE question" that DEMANDS an answer-life's MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION!

 

I wished I had taken the time and effort to "make sure" of the cigarette wielding elderly retired soldier.

 

It would not taken but a precious few more minutes of my time!

 

What if he was NOT saved??

 

What IF he had been submersed, sprinkled, etc. in vain???

 

The "ONE QUESTION" all must answer, "AM I SAVED?"

 

ARE YOU?

 

ARE ALL YOUR LOVED ONES SAVED????

 

And do WE, can WE ask ALL we meet this "ONE QUESTION"???

 

As we say down south, "GETERDUN!"

 

GOD BLESS YOU TODAY!
