so sad it was just a phase...
although the complete story would only be known between God and him...
a sobering wake-up call for all of us. is this just a phase for me? for someone i know? or did we really sincerely accept Jesus in the first place?
and please don't underestimate the IMPORTANCE of spiritual follow-up. care for your everyone who's new in Christ! they are as vulnerable as babies, and we're dealing here with spiritual life and death...!
- Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation... (1 Peter 2:2)
- When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown along the path. (Matthew 13:19; click HERE for the complete Parable of the Sower in Matthew 13:1-23)
we cannot do anything about John Lennon anymore; his entire fate is literally in God's hands now. but we CAN do something about our friends, our family, even strangers.
God is all-powerful but He gave each of us the freedom to follow Him or not.
don't let the enemy and his agents snatch away any more souls from God.
