Remember the scene in Lord of the Rings where Gandalf lite the signal fires to spread the word of attack to neighboring Gondor? We have the same responsibility as Christians. We are like spiritual Ushers helping people escape a burning theater.
But what do we say if people remind us we ourselves are not perfect? Begin by being honest and start living right. "I just wanted to start taking it more seriously now."
Read Ezekiel 33:1 - 11 God called us to be watchmen. God gives us influence to spend in our lives to take the gospel to others.
God takes no pleasure in the deaths of the wicked. "Turn! Turn!"
