About What Should We Testify?


In the story of Lazarus and the Rich man, we are told that when the rich man was in Hell, he pleaded with Abraham to have someone go to his father's house to testify to his family. About what should they testify? Imagine that the rich man has appeared to you and is speaking at this moment. His clothes are smoking with heat. His terrified eyes are aflame with fire. He wants you to testify to his loved ones. What should you say to them "There's a Godshaped vacuum in your heart that only God can fill"? Of course not. He would have you warn them of the terrible reality of Hell, and tell them to turn from sin and flee to the Savior. That's our commission. Don't be distracted from such a sobering task. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
