Cloudburst: Why Do We Fail?

Can we thank God for our salvation, without making every effort to fulfill our calling as his chosen people and “proclaim the excellencies of him who called [us] out of darkness into his marvelous light”? 1Pt 2.9 ESV.

Can we enjoy the bounty of Thanksgiving Day, while allowing humankind to perish in the fires of eternal hell?

Do we congratulate ourselves that we have been so blessed and so privileged to have received the gospel, but make half-hearted efforts to share it with others?

To the large number who belong to this group, today’s poem is directed. (It’s sent only by email.) If needed, we ought to repent. To return to the simplicity of the gospel. To become Christians ourselves and to teach others to be converted.
