The Lost State of the Lost


Those of us who know the Lord tend to take for granted that we have purpose in our existence, and that can make us forget the lost state of the unsaved. Ernest Hemingway said, "Life is a dirty trick, a short journey from nothingness to nothingness." He tragically committed suicide. Henry Longfellow wrote, "Life is but an empty dream," while Samuel Butler said, "Life is just a long process of getting tired." Samuel Becket said, "Life is an indefinite waiting for an explanation that never comes." And that explanation will never come until a sinner comes to the Savior. What an absolute tragedy that people could be alive and yet not know why they are alive. Such knowledge of how lost these poor people are should drive us to our knees that God would have mercy on them and draw them to the Savior before death seizes on them and drags them to Hell. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
