Daily Bible Reading: Luke 16:19 – 31
Verse of the Day: Luke 16:31 – “And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, if one rise from the dead.”
Many call this the Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus. I don’t believe it is a parable because Jesus gives us a name of a person. This may have been a recent event of these two men dying that the people were aware of.
He gives a glimpse into the spiritual world of events following the death of a person. We see that Paradise and the place of torment are two distinct real places. The gulf tells us that a person makes his or her choice of where they spend eternity here and now, not after death. That is why it is important that we receive Jesus Christ now, and that we share this with others so they can make their choice.
Today, who can you share the message of salvation with? Don’t delay, they may not have tomorrow to make a choice.
Prayer: Holy Spirit, give me insight and wisdom to speak to others about Christ. Amen.
