I heard of a man who pulled into a gas station to fill his vehicle full of gas; the young gas attendant came to meet the needs of the driver. The Lord put the burden on the driver’s heart to share Jesus with the young man. The burden grew heavier on the man’s heart as he sat in his car. He gave into to his fear and said nothing to the gas attendant about Jesus. The next day the driver heard that the young attendant was killed in a motorcycle accident.
The man for years experienced extreme guilt knowing the Lord was speaking to him in that instance to share the gospel with the young man.
“And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Acts 2:21
Truly we may be the last call to an unbeliever that God is reaching out to draw that person into His glorious Kingdom. Our sharing or not sharing the gospel with them could be the last call in eternity for them. Look at it this way Heaven or Hell could literally be at stake in their lives.
We miss the prompting of the Holy Spirit; God will forgive us and He will not condemn us and in turn we cannot condemn ourselves for the rest of our years here on earth. I lay no guilt or condemnation on any Christian who may have experienced the “last call” circumstance in their lives. I am admonishing the Body of Christ to be sensitive to the voice of the Spirit in their daily lives.
Think about it from another perspective-God prompts you to share Jesus with the waiter serving your meal at that precise moment. You obey and the waiter or waitress accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior! Their shift ends and they head out the door to go home. Except they never make it home because they were hit by a car or they were in a fatal auto accident. Now because of your obeying the Lord’s voice they will spend forever in God’s presence.
So you see God leads us to the right person in the right place for His “last call” and He will supply the anointing and boldness we need to get the job done. So move on in Christ!
Have you ever experienced a “last call” moment?
