Jude 23 says, “And others save with fear; pulling them out of the fire….
And others save with fear; pulling them out of the fire refers to sinners whom we consider hopeless. I knew a woman like that who many consider hopeless and that woman was my mom.
I can remember going to church with her only one time, but she never stopped us from going. She didn’t wannna talk about God, forgiveness and salvation, but that didn’t stop me from sharing anyway!
I never gave up on my mom. Every chance I got I told her about the love of Jesus and how she could be saved. She told me one day, “Son, I’m not stupid, I know what I need to do, I’m just not willing to do it right now!
I praise God for his mercy and grace. On her death bed she told Thomas, my brother that she had been saved. She didn’t give much of her life to the Lord, but what she had she gave it, and I truly believe in my heart that she’s with our Lord in glory.
You may know someone like that. Let me encourage you to never give up. Keep showing and sharing the love of Jesus with them. Who knows, they may accept Jesus sooner than you think!
