The greatest sin of the average Christian

June 1, 2020 by Dr. Jack Graham

Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.”

–John 20:21

Howard Hendricks, the noted Bible scholar and now retired professor at Dallas Theological Seminary, once said, “The greatest threat to Christianity is not Communism or atheism. It is Christians trying to get into heaven incognito without being involved in sharing their faith with others or serving the Lord with their whole hearts.”

Robert Louis Stevenson said, “The cruelest lies are often told in silence.” The fact is that the greatest sin of the average Christian is the sin of silence. And the cruelest lie of all is to know the Lord Jesus and never tell anyone about it!

God has given you the Good News to share and be a witness to others of His grace shown through Jesus Christ. As a Christian, you are chosen of God and commanded of God to share your faith with others. There’s just no other way about it!

So instead of being silent, tell others about Christ. I’m not telling you to stand on the street corners and condemn people. But love others who are in your life today with the love of Jesus and share His truth with them. When you’re obedient to God’s call to give away your faith, you’ll be fulfilled as you live out what you’re called to do!

DON’T COMMIT THE SIN OF SILENCE. INSTEAD, OBEY GOD’S CALL TO POINT PEOPLE TO A RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST!
