Encouraging The Unfaithful

As Christians, we probably know of some member who used to be a faithful disciple of Jesus, but who has reverted to worldly ways (cf. 2 Timothy 4:10). As difficult as it is for us to understand, there are some in the Lord’s church who put their hands to the plow of the Lord’s service, only to later “look back” to the world’s allurements (Luke 9:62).

As faithful Christians, we may use every opportunity to encourage these wandering souls to return to the path of righteousness, only to become frustrated when the backslider refuses to repent. We wonder, “Do they not see how they are endangering their souls?” (Matthew 16:24-26).
