As an only child and at the age of 69 I am the repository of all the memories of my mother and father.
When I die and go to be with the Lord, there will be no one left to remember my parents. If they knew Christ as their Savior and Lord (which they do not), then there would be a reunion in heaven between us. But I do not have that to look forward to and neither do they. When I go to be with the Lord He promises to wipe away every tear from my eyes regarding this journey of life here on this veil of tears we call earth.
He will somehow heal my broken heart and give me peace and I believe forgetfulness of all those whom I loved and cherished while here, but will never see again.
So in a true sense I will have forgotten my parents, never to be remembered again. But my parents will be in another place, not together, but alone with all their memories of the life they lived.
Memories that will be remembered by each of them and reviewed forever.
Who do you know and love more than your own life that does not know Jesus Christ as Savior? Look around you at. …Your wife, your husband, your brother, your sister, your child (son or daughter), your grandchildren, your relatives, your best friends…the list can go on and on for most of us. By keeping your mouth closed about your faith do you understand that you are helping them condemn themselves?
That’s not what God wants and that should not be what you want. There are many creative ways to share the Word of God. Don’t ever give up, keep on trying. Someday it will be too late and those whom God has put in your path will be forgotten to you…because you won’t be here anymore.
They will miss the reunion. They will miss a new universe that God has created to give us dominion over with purpose and joy. They will miss the forever joy of a journey without end.
When it is all over, there is nothing more important for you to do than to share your faith and speak to them about their need for a Savior. Should they die before you; you do not want to carry the emotional anguish because you kept your mouth shut. Jesus Said…
“I AM the WAY the TRUTH and The LIFE”…. there is NO OTHER WAY to Heaven but through ME.
Your blessing will be to forget them…. they have no blessing… they will become the FORGOTTEN.
