Re: Third anniversity of SOCM-FORUM
- Dear SOCM-FORUM Moderators and
Members of the SOCM-FORUM,
The word of God says, "When I say to the wicked man,
`you will surely die', and you do not warm him or speak
out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save
his life, that wicked man will die for his sin, and
I will hold you accountable for his blood. But if you
do warn the wicked man and he does not turn from his
wickedness or from his evil ways, he will die for his
sin, but you will have saved yourself" (Eze.3:18-19).
What a warning? What a responsibility? But we Christians
seldom open our mouth to warn others. In our day-to-day
life, telling everyone about the Gospel of Jesus Christ
may not be very `practiable'. Often we are afraid whether
we will affend others by telling the Gospel. But Jesus
Christ says, "If anyone is ashamed of me and My words
in this adulterous and sinful generation, Son of Man
will be ashamed of him when He comes in His Father's glory
with the holy angels" (Mk.8:38).
We can always keep some good tracts and hand them over
to the people we come across. Yes, SOCM-FORUM Moderators,
you all are not only preaching, but also practising the
Gospel through the FORUM messages. May God Almighty shower
HIS Blessings upon you, for keeping up the vigour and
sincerity in upkeeping the Traditions and dogmas of our
Church, handed over by our predessors.
With best wishes,
St. Mary's JSO Church, Ahmedabad.
