From Pastor..."Dear friends, keep building on the foundation of your most holy faith, as the Holy Spirit helps you to pray.  And keep in step with God's love, as you wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to show how kind He is by giving you eternal life.  Be helpful to all who may have doubts.  Rescue any who need to be saved, as you would rescue someone from a fire. Then with fear in your hearts, have mercy on everyone who needs it.  But hate even the clothes of those who have been dirty by their filthy deeds."   [Jude 20-23]
Studying these verses a bit and just reading the little 'Headings' one that caught my eye, one that sums up the verses, was "RECLAIMING THE LOST!" Reading a 2008 Men Of Integrity Book I came across this devotion.  The author wrote:During WWII, Lutheran Pastor, Martin Niemoller, headed the German Confessing Church movement, which opposed Nazism. Niemoller said that he had a recurring nighmare of Hitler standing before the divine judgement seat. Jesus came off His throne, put His arm around Hitler's shoulders, and sorrowfully asked, "Adolf! How could you have done the incredibly cruel, evil things you did?
Hitler answered , "Because no one ever told me about Your love for me and what You did for me." 
There is much more to that devotion.  The bottom line of course is that Niemoller's dream characterizes our lives too often.  We too, should remind people of how much Jesus loves them. We too, need to remind others of Jesus' suffering, death, and resurrection.  We too, need to tell others that Jesus is the RESURRECTION and the LIFE. Anyone who BELIEVES in HIm, even though they might die, will have ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN!   [John 11:25] 
We need to have more Desmond Doss in us, the faith in God, the love for Jesus, and willingness to bring others to Him.  We need to have some of the desire to save others, that Desmond Doss had to save soliders in Okinawa, in WWII. 
That's not news, but it too is reality, as Peter Truman, of the Global News used to say.

 

"There is SALVATION in NO ONE ELSE!  There is NO OTHER NAME in all of heaven for people to call on TO SAVE THEM!"  [Portions of Acts 4:11&12]  Jesus is the One to call upon!  He said about Himself, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no one gets to the Father except by Me!"  John 14:6

"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved!"  Acts 16:31
