Pilot Truck Stop Last Night with My Son

Last night was so sweet, it had to be of Christ and His mercy to those I had a predetermined conversation. Again and again my expectation are small about the way things will unfold. But God in His determination to have His Gospel delivered to the exact people He had chosen delivered a knock out blow to my fleshly mind.

I keep pinching myself in a way because I would have never thought Christ would choose me to deliver such an important precise message as is the Gospel. The Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ. Repentance and trust in Him, knowing the law, what sin is, and the message of the cross. This brings about true conversion.

Rom 1:16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

If you change the message you change the One who
brought it, Jesus Christ. If you change the message you make it powerless to change anything.
The message to all three of these gentlemen is that they are doomed without salvation of Jesus Christ.
Their "strivings" will never be good enough. Imagine that. I talked to 3 different men and all of them, a sinner and his own beliefs, a JW with baggage, and a Hindu. What a night. All three men had the same belief within different religions, the sin of unbelief.
They all tried to be "good". They all sought to do the "right thing". In the end all our righteousness is filthy rags to God. No matter whose religion, it comes down to how good can I be to attain "heaven".
They all want the same thing, heaven. They just don't want God to be there. There own reasoning of what heaven should be is one big giant tent of "good people". Their god would overlook their sins of lying, stealing, adultery, coveting, idolatry. That's the god they worship and that's the god that will drag them to hell.
Don't play with the time God has given you. Consider it His mercy on your soul. Don't waste time, now is the time for Salvation, you don't know what tomorrow will bring, your days are numbered.
You just don't know what number is yours.
