I think the most profound passage in the Bible is Luke 10:2; “The harvest is plentiful but the laborers s are few”.
The living God of the Christians is focused on only one end. Everything He thinks, does, says, and feels, either directly or indirectly, has to do with having His children with Him for eternity.
So, we know that the harvest is humanity and the labors must also be humanity; those willing to work in the vineyard to help their brothers and sisters get to Heaven. But the laborers are few; obviously meaning that there are not enough people willing to work in the vineyard to help their brothers and sisters get to Heaven. The deduction here is straightforward – many don’t make it to Heaven because they have no one to help them.
Why not? Why don’t some Christians want to work in the vineyard, even knowing that God will reward them for their effort? There are probably many reasons – but there are no excuses.
A Christian is a person of action – they not only “Talk the Talk”; they “Walk the Walk”. A Christian puts into action their beliefs.
So, lets “Walk the Walk” of a Christian.
Can you give you brothers and sisters, who need help getting to Heaven, 2 minutes of your time?
If you say no, then I dare to say you have no right to call yourself a Christian – because Christians are action orientated - they “Walk the Walk”.
If you say yes, then pray this prayer slowly, from your heart, 5 times each day for the next 30 days. It takes 2 minutes.
“Dearest Jesus, I present to You my brother and sister who has abandoned their soul to satan. Take this soul and redeem it in Your Holy Eyes. Free this soul from slavery to the beast and bring it eternal salvation. Amen”
For these 2 minutes you were working in God’s vineyard.
Even for those of you who do work in the vineyard; asking 2 more minutes of your time I don’t think is asking too much.
It is our Christian duty to help our brothers and sisters. We all need to back up our talk with our walk.
