The Ultimate Problem

There is no other problem that comes close to this problem. The seriousness of it is that the vast majority of human beings are not aware of it. All who are born into this world are born spiritually dead. They are cut off from God. They will be banished from His Presence and confined in Hell forever, with no possibility of escape! Why? Paul, after telling the Roman believers his commission and commitment, explains why: “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed (it) unto them. For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, (even) His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse….” (Romans 1:18-20). Mankind is in rebellion against God. Mankind is accountable and without excuse. The human race has gone and is going its own way; not God’s way! Few, if any, take the initiative of seeking God. But God offers Spiritual life, pardon, cleansing, understanding and much more. “But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). It’s at this point that a choice must be made: continue in rebellion, or surrender and receive God’s salvation, grace and mercy and in true faith embrace Jesus as Savior and Lord. This was Paul’s commitment and commission: explain and extend the offer of this great salvation. If we have received this gift of life, we are to offer it to others. In the Gospel song, ‘Lord, Lay Some soul upon My Heart, author Leon Tucker offers a prayer that we would do well to make our own: “Lord, lay some soul upon my heart and love that soul thro’ me; and may I nobly do my part to win that soul for Thee.” Selah! We are told the good news (the Gospel). If we have received salvation, let’s share that glorious news with others!    Ron
