Murders come in all kinds of ways. They come through violence. They come through domestic squabbles. They come through gang warfares. The history of the world is unfortunately littered with records of murder. In fact, murders are so commonplace that they don’t always make the news cycle unless they’re bizarre or multiple. Yet, the most prevalent form of murder that never gets reported is anger.
Life is a battle of choices. We not only have to choose what to do, but what not to do. We know that in order to say yes to one thing you have to say no to another, but even that is an understatement. Especially in America, where we have an incredible amount of freedom and potential to pursue different paths, in order to reach one goal you have to refuse a thousand others.
Knock. Knock. Knock. “Hi, my name is Ben and we’re out in the community inviting people to church.”
“Well, thanks but I already go to ______ Baptist Church.”
“Oh! Hey, is it alright if I ask you a question, too? If you were to die tonight, and God asked you, why should I let you into heaven, what would you say?”
“Well, I try to live right and obey the Bible.”

Consider a hypothetical situation: Suppose God came to you and gave you a 100% guarantee that every time you share the Gospel, it would result in the conversion of a lost soul. Every single witnessing opportunity would result in repentance and faith - no exceptions!
Imagine that! How would such a guarantee change the way you live? I don’t know about you, but I would become the most passionate evangelist this world has ever seen. I would share the Gospel at every street corner, supermarket, and bus stop. I would proclaim the Good News to every man and women that crossed my path!
