Psalm 22:11, 19 MKJV Be not far from Me; for trouble is near, for there is none to help. ... But You, O LORD, be not far from Me; O My strength, hurry to help Me!
There is a saying, "There are no athiests in foxholes." Simply, when we're in serious trouble, we turn to the Lord. Problem is, how can someone turn to Him if they have no clue to who God is? In our post-Christian culture we can't assume our neighbors, co-workers, even family and friends know the Jesus of the Bible. He says it's our job to share His message of sin, sacrifice and salvation with those around us.
The question, am I willing to forego my fear and embarrassment to share the greatest news about love & life ever and save lives or do I stay silent, letting those I profess to care about live and die without Christ--proving I don't really believe the message either?
V. 22 I will declare Your name to My brothers; in the midst of thecongregation I will praise You.
