I was at the gas station today and while the attendant was filling up our VW van I noticed a warning sign posted near the gas pump. It was there, visible for all to read and be informed about the use and misuse of gasoline.
The first thing it said was that gasoline was to be used as fuel only.
For nothing else.
Then I noticed below, that there was another warning:
“If ingested, this product may cause death.”
There it was, in plain sight.
If you drink this stuff – your gonna die!!
I told the attendant,
“Some may say:”
“Now that’s too radical!”
“That’s not politically correct!”
“They should “water down” that warning!”
Then I continued talking to the man that was looking at me with a surprised look on his face;
“Want to hear something else that’s really radical?”
Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
John 3:17-18, “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
John 3:36, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
Friend, the wrath of God abides on those who are in sin!
Your only hope is to trust in the redemptive sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross in your place!
John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
Jesus is the only way, the only truth and the only life!
Are you in Christ?
The attendant just looked at me and said;
"Well, you got to preach the truth, don’t you!?"
If warning people that they are on their way to Hell; and that their only hope is in Jesus Christ is “radical”, then I’ll bare that cross! What about you? Will you “post” the warning so all can see?
