SOUND THE TRUMPET
TEXT: JEREMIAH 4:1-8
MEMORY VERSE: “Declare ye in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem; and say, Blow ye the trumpet in the land: cry, gather together, and say, Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the defenced cities” (JEREMIAH 4:5).
Trumpets were used in the Bible days to call the people of God to assembly and to give warning signals in cases of enemy invasions. Thus, the sound of the trumpet was indicative of an emergency call for the good of the people, either to inform or to warn them.
In our contemporary time, the sound of the trumpet is made loud through the preaching of the gospel by anointed men of God. Thus, the sound of the trumpet (gospel message) is a wake-up call to sinners to repent and for believers to remain steadfast.
Every sinner is at risk of eternal destruction. It is therefore your duty, once you are born again, to sound the alarm; to point out to other youths who are still sinners, the eternal danger ahead of them. Preach the gospel; give out tracts and magazines to them. By all means, do all you can to save the unbelieving youths around you.Have you yielded your life to Jesus? If not, why not now? Tomorrow may be too late. Pray and ask Jesus into your heart right now.
QUOTE: Preach the gospel.
CHALLENGE: Many are perishing.
PRAYER: Oh Lord, help me to warn sinners around me.
