A Letter to Those Without Christ

Oh, blind eyes, how I wish you would gaze upon the cross. Because I do not wish you eternal misery, I wish you could see the state of terror you currently live in (Rev. 21:8).

Oh, deaf ears, how I wish you would hear the good news of Jesus Christ. If you opened your ears to the message of peace, you would be reconciled to the Savior at once (Rom. 5:10).

Oh, crippled body, how I wish you would walk the narrow way. I wish that your earthly pains would lead you to the foot of the cross. Instead, you stumble as you walk in the path of destruction and are nearing a deadly precipice. If you fall now, there will be no rescue for you (Matt. 7:13-14).

Will you not turn away? At this very moment, you may be rescued, but after death, there will be no opportunity to change your path (Heb. 9:27). I urge you to call upon the Lord Jesus Christ, who came to heal the blind, deaf, and crippled.

How long will live in vanity? Your life is wasting away (Ecc. 3:11). If you believed in Christ as Lord and turned from your sins, you would receive life everlasting. You could gloriously say, “Oh, death, where is your sting?” but for you, death will have an eternal and ever so painful sting if you do not turn from your sins (1 Cor. 15:55-56).

How long will you shake your fist at the Creator? He who creates new hearts has made you and has died so that impure hearts would be cleansed (Acts 15:9). Will you continue to forsake the Christ who was pierced for our iniquities? Will you curse Him who was already cursed? Hasn’t He already bore the weight of our sins? (Is. 53:5, Gal. 3:13).

Or are you without need for a Savior? Are you ignorant of your record of transgressions? Is that why you speak against the Judge?

Plea for forgiveness now, knowing that the demands of the law were never meant to save you. The commands of God were not given for you to be saved by; they were given to you so that you could see your need for a Savior. And so a Savior came – one who perfectly kept the law as you could not (Rom. 8:3).

The Son of God died so that we may live, but if we refuse Him, we refuse life eternal (John 3:16). Our sins are like scarlet, but He alone can make us white as snow (Is. 1:18). He alone can wrap us in robes of righteousness (Is. 61:10). He has died and taken the wrath of the Father for our sins (1 John 2:2). Now if we believe in Him who raised Christ from the dead and confess with our mouths that Jesus is Lord, we will be saved (Rom. 10:9).

How I long for my Savior to receive the glory for your salvation. His arm is not short to save (Is. 59:1). I know this to be true from the Scripture and from my own life. I was once like a corpse, dead in my transgressions and sins, and He resurrected me to newness of life (2 Cor. 5:17). Now, I have fullness of joy and rest for my soul. I have innumerable pleasures at His right hand. I am satisfied in the goodness of my Lord (Ps. 16:11). I no longer trust in my good deeds; rather, I trust in Christ alone.

His righteousness is sufficient to cleanse us of our unrighteousness, so let us strip ourselves of the filthy rags of our righteousness and be washed by the cross (Is. 64:6).

If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and await punishment, but if we acknowledge our sin and look to the Savior, we walk in truth and await endless joy (1 John 1:8). Will you strive to please God by your good works? Don’t know that you and I are capable of no good? (Rom. 3:9-11).

Or will you tell the Savior that your sins are beyond His forgiveness? Don’t you know that you are denying His grace and ability to save? The cross has already proven that your sins are wretched; will you try to convince God of what He already knows? (Is. 43:25).

Do not tarry for another second. Today is the day of salvation (2 Cor. 6:2). Lean upon the grace of God lest you fall into the pit of death. If you trust in His mercy and grace, His commands will not be burdensome to you (1 John 1:3). He will guide you as a father and welcome you as a child (Gal. 4:6). Are you weak and heavy laden? The gentle and lowly Christ will give you rest (Matt. 11:28-30). Are you a fearful slave? Call to Him who is Abba, Father, and be adopted as a child.

Give Him the glory He deserves, walking in the ancient paths, finding rest for your soul, and never looking upon your old life (Jer. 6:16). Fix your gaze upon the cross – where the blood of Christ was poured out for our purification.

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

1 John 1:9
