Hello, today the Pastor preached on Lazarus and the rich man; and this is our summary of what he said.
Basically the pastor said that we shouldn’t wait until it is too late to believe in Jesus. He said that, for the rich man, it was too late to change his mind and go to heaven.
He also talked about what the rich man said in hell. He asked Abraham to send Lazarus back to Earth to warn his brothers. Abraham said that Moses and the prophets were enough of a reason for his brothers to go to heaven. The pastor said that the rich man was saying that it was God’s fault that he went to hell. The rich man was saying, in essence, that God did not give enough of a reason for the rich man to repent; and so he thought that his brothers should at least be given enough information.
But; that is not true at all! Just look at Jesus; Jesus is our “information”! God sent His very own son to die for us; that is enough of a reason to believe that God loves us and that we do need and have a savior!
Jesus is our savior; He is the way out of Hell. And the Pastor showed us the Gospel very clearly; which I am very thankful for.
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland and,
