I am obligated both to Greeks and non-Greeks, both to the wise and the foolish
When I was a kid my parents often warned me about leaving my swimming goggles next to the pool in the sun, "because they will perish". I soon found out what perish means. What was prized became useless and beyond repair. Only a new pair would suffice.
The world is perishing and all that is in it – 1 Jhn 2:17
But in Christ, all things are made new – 2 Cor 5:17
Church, we have a love-obligation to broadcast to the world The Hope in Christ, who died for us that we need not perish, neither in this world or the next!
