What God Says in Ezekiel About Telling Others About Him

Do we have a responsibility to tell others about salvation in Jesus Christ? Read what God tells Ezekiel in the book of Ezekiel 3:17-21:

Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.

When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.

And a few verses from the New Testament concerning salvation.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:9

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;                                                                              Titus 3:5

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.                                       Ephesians 2:8-9

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.   John 14:6

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

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.          Matthew 7:21

What are we to do tell others about what He has done for you! Be a daily walking and talking witness for Jesus Christ! Being a Christian is not being religious, but a lifestyle! Your daily testimony is very important!

Learn it! Love it! Live it!

Let Me Tell You About My Savior

Now at the age, where in the United States I am considered a senior citizen, I can look back over the years and see how the Lord has worked in my life. I came to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as my Savior when I was 15. Because of the consistent and repeated testimony in books I was reading, I asked the Lord to be my Savior when I was at band camp. Through the years, He guided as I grew up in His family.

Through His leading in college from a godly couple, I began working as a Christian school teacher. Though I failed the Lord many times, He never failed me.

I had to take a medical retirement from the Christian ministry I was in for more than 37 years in 2010. Because of the rare disease, I have, I am limited to what I can do outside of my home. But the Lord led me to home schooling and tutoring. Times have been tough, but He has provided so many amazing times.

It is so hard, with our earth-bound minds, to wrap our understanding and thoughts about what it was God, our heavenly father, did for us because of His love. He separated a part of Himself, His Son, and sent Jesus to earth.

Jesus came for us. It doesn’t matter what our size, shape, language, education, eye color, or skin color is. To quote the angel when announcing Jesus’ birth to the shepherds: “And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.” Luke 2:10

But, the only way we can have Jesus Christ as our Savior, is to realize we are sinners, lost without Him. We must believe He is the only Son of God, who came to earth to die on the cross for our sins, and rise from the grave to ascend to Heaven.

Do you know Jesus Christ has your personal Savior? The Romans Road describes the only way to Heaven. Study it, learn it, and follow it! You will never regret it! This is for eternity!

 Everyone Needs Salvation

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)

Jesus Died for Our Salvation

But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

 Salvation Is a Gift

The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

 We Are Saved by Grace

And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. (Romans 11:6)

 Salvation Comes Through Faith

To him that … believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. (Romans 4:5)

 God Saves All Who Call Upon Him

Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)

The Bible says there are two roads in life: one is the way to eternal joy in Heaven, and the other leads to eternal punishment in Hell. Which road are you on? When you reach death’s door and go through it the road ahead will be set by what you do in this present life. Please, do not put it off!

Follow the Romans Road to your personal salvation today. Recognize that you are a sinner and that your sin must be judged by God. Jesus died to pay the penalty for your sin, but you must choose to accept His provision. Understand that you cannot earn your way to Heaven through good works or religious activity. Now turn to God and put your faith in Jesus Christ who died for you and rose again.

 If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9,10)

What love our heavenly Father had for His creation, it’s amazing! Not accepting His great love and not living for Him hurts His heart.

Witnessing

“Witnessing for Christ can be a one-time event when we speak the good news about Him to others. But it may also involve walking alongside people who are seeking help and wholeness. Our genuine interest in their spiritual welfare, our prayers, and our involvement with them say without words, ‘Come and see. Let’s walk together, and I’ll take you to Him.'”

Do You Belong to God’s Family?

It’s the most important issue of life: Can you say that God is your Father? Have you become a child of God by declaring your personal faith in Jesus as Savior? Your answer determines whether all the joys of knowing God as Father now and throughout eternity will be yours.

Perhaps you are not sure that you are a member of the family of God. Now is a good time to settle the issue.

The Father longs to adopt you, and the procedure is simple. Come to Him in childlike faith, accepting His offer of forgiveness from your sins, which have kept you out of the family. Jesus lived, died, and rose from the grave to show you the Father’s love and to make it possible to become a member of God’s family.

The Father is waiting to hear from you. He does not expect flowery words, just a simple expression of childlike faith. Tell Him that you believe Jesus died to pay the penalty for your sins. Accept His gift of forgiveness (Romans 6:23) and the invitation to be part of His family forever.

If you’ve done that, welcome to the family!

Don’t Delay

“Lord, I know that I am a sinner. If I had died before I trusted in You, I would have gone to hell and not to heaven. I want to ask you to forbive my sin, come into my life, and be my Savior today. Hellp me to live for you from this day forward.
–In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Your new life begins when you receive Jesus Christ as Savior.

“And this is the record. That God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.”
