A Soul from Death

James wrote, “Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins” (James 5:19-20). This passage was written to Christians and is concerned with Christians. Notice that first, a brother may err from the truth. Second, he may be converted or restored to the truth. Third, a brother converted from the error of his way is thus saved from death. Fourth, his salvation is attributed to the efforts of a faithful brother. Fifth, a multitude of sins is hidden by the conversion.

Perhaps, you dear friend, obeyed the Gospel of Christ sometime in the past but have since departed from the way of truth and righteousness. If so, consider seriously the end of your present course and the quickness with which your time and opportunities are passing. If you are a delinquent member of the church, please feel free to contact us (573-859-6616). It is the Christian’s desire and the Lord’s desire for you to be an active servant for Him.

“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end.” (Hebrews 3:12-14).
