83 each minute; 4980 each hour; 119,520 each day somewhere in the world are dying without Christ.

83 each minute; 4980 each hour; 119,520 are going out of this world to their maker without hope.

Some of them are going to meet him who have been told to meet the way of salvation and have rejected it. Many are going on without Christ who have never heard of Him. No one has ever taken the time or trouble to tell them of this wonderful Saviour.

Some people say that those who have never heard of Christ will be saved because they have never had a chance to know Him, but God's Word says in John 3:36, "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; and he that believeth not on the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."

And in Acts 4:12, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Also, John 3:18 says, "He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."

Christ himself as he left this world said "Go ye therefore and teach the nations," He meant just what he said, and yet after over 1900 years we find lost souls going out to meet Him each minute. Almost 4 with every breath that we draw.

May that number be burned in the heart of all who read this, and may each ask himself if any of the blood of that 83 is on his hands. Oh, the millions without Christ, without God, without Hope.

Do you care dear friend? Is your heart bleeding for those who have never had a chance to hear the blessed Gospel story? Have you heard the Master's call and have you replied. "Here am I Lord, send me"? If you can not go, you can pray and you can give that others may go. And you can do much right where you are.

83 lost souls each minute! No wonder the angels rejoice over one soul that repenteth. I wonder if you or I will be able to go to sleep tonight without thinking about that 83. Oh, Christian friend, let's pray, let's give, let's work as we never have before. Our Lord is coming soon maybe sooner than we think. Will we hear His words, "Well done" when He comes?
