The Reluctant Gospel
Susan Bunts Wachtel
Free to Share
How easily I compromise,
When failing to share the only Cure,
With those lost in their sin...bound for hell.
Reluctant…I don’t want to offend,
The Gospel message seems so narrow a path,
So I don’t share, lest they think I’m judgmental.
How ironic…if they had cancer,
I would be so eager to share the good news,
Medicine that would spare their terminal prognosis.
Whether they believe in no God or many,
Create a god of their own making,
Or deceive themselves that they are god.
Do I lack confidence,
Because I fail to know the Truth,
Or do I study God’s Word so I might know?
Not my own words,
Nor my own wisdom,
But the Truth from the infallible Word of God.
We are lost in our sin,
Unable to save ourselves,
Our own works…will never bring righteousness.
There is only One Way,
He Who is the Way, the Truth and the Life,
We can only come unto the Father by Him alone.
Instead I draw back…fail to share the truth,
After all I am no scholar or theologian,
I might not be able to answer all their questions or challenges.
So instead I stand back,
Let them go forth to eternity,
Lost…soon to share that which God created for Satan and his demons.
How pray tell is that walking in love?
Like letting one walk off a cliff,
Only to fall to their most certain death.
Those lost in their sin will pay the eternal price.
Will I choose to remain silent?
Or share the life giving message…salvation is found in Christ Jesus alone?

The above poem was inspired by today’s sermon from guest speaker Kevin Lewis. Kevin addressed a concern, near and dear to his heart…the Christian church is influenced by today’s secular society and is weak and lacking in their Bible knowledge. So much so that we are ineffective in sharing the Gospel message with those who are perishing…lost in their sin. Kevin got down to basics as we started to delve into “Jesus Christ …the Only Way to Eternal Life”.
