A Stone-Cold Fact

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. There’s one verse in the Bible that causes my knees to shake. It’s John chapter 5. There Jesus says, “…a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out—those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned.” Yikes! I mean, think about it. The people you see everyday—people at the gas station, in line at the ATM, people flipping burgers at McDonald’s … We see them all the time, but trouble is, we never really picture that person one day rising out of their grave to be either condemned or to live. It’s a terrifying thought, but the Bible says it clearly: if people don’t know Jesus, God won’t accept them. So, how can you help those people get to know God? Pray for them, befriend them, and then—share your faith. The Lord is coming soon, and we’ve got a lot of work to do!
