I pity those who do not believe there is a God who created everything, and his Son Jesus Christ who was crucified for our sins, and the Holy Spirit who gives us new life in Christ. I sorrow for those who do not believe there is life after death where we all must give an accounting for our life on earth, whether we did good or bad. Be grieved that there are millions of souls who believe that death is the end of it all. So what do those poor souls do? They seek all the pleasure and gratifications this present world offers. They fill their coffers with as much material wealth as possible. They tell their soul to eat, drink, and be merry. Yes, they do know they will die, but they think tomorrow when it may be tonight. Little do they realize that what they leave behind is only a reminder of how to lose a soul. But who of those who seek pleasure with them stop to be reminded when they are gone? Who of them have any notion that the moment they leave in death, is the beginning of an eternal experience of deepest, darkest, eternal horror. We are unfaithful servants of the living God if we do not warn the foolish of the danger ahead. We must do more than pity, or be sorrowed, but to announce to the perishing that indeed they are perishing and that life is more than eat, drink, and be merry. The believers time on earth is best spent by so living and so speaking as to rescue the perishing while we and they have time.
"Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave;
Weep o're the erring one, lift up the fallen
Tell them of Jesus the mighty to save."
