Where have the Christians gone?
I watched the news this morning to find out that in the period of 2007 through 2014 the percentage of people who call themselves Christians has dropped from 78% to 70%. They said this is due to the new generation as the older generation pass on. This got me thinking that the 8% of people who either no longer call themselves Christian or those who have never received Jesus need to take notice.
I have read the back of the book and I know we win. I know that for those who choose to walk away or refuse to accept Christ are in for a very shocking time in their life. They will be passed over when Christ returns and live in eternity where I am sure they never thought they would end up. For me, I want them to know there is still time. God is preparing to send His Son to collect His people and He is telling those who follow Him to tell everyone about receiving Jesus so they may be saved and spend eternity with Him.
Though I have spent most of my life running, hiding, and doing whatever I like, I have spent the last twenty years telling people to turn from their wicked ways and receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Jesus said, “go preach the gospel to every living being” and for me that has struck home and I want everyone to know. God changed my life and He will change yours. God has touched lives all over the world and continues to do so preparing for His return.
If you are in anything other than that 70% you may want to consider your thoughts and what you do. Every day you see on the news that this young person or that young person was shot or killed in some violent act and your thoughts should go to “did they know Jesus”. I wonder if their piers told them about Jesus or if anyone told them about Him. My concern is that as those statistics grow and less people consider themselves Christian is “how long will God continue to tarry before His return and how can I be a part of telling them”. I really have no idea but my ways are not God’s ways nor are my thoughts His thoughts, so I will continue to seek His face and His direction and do what He has called me to do.
I am a Christian and I am honored to be called one of His children. I will follow Him to the end of my time and I will tell all those I come in contact with about His love. May the Lord God speak to your hearts today if you do not know Him as your personal Savior, and may He speak into your lives and put a boldness and a desire to tell others about the love of Jesus!

An Evangelist called to preach the gospel all over the world. To lay hands on the sick and to prophecy to everyone. Reaching out to the world that all may be saved.
