SOUNDING THE ALARM

"Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints."  Jude 1:3

Jude is a powerful little book, written by the half-brother of Jesus.  In his epistle, he shares about the dangers of apostasy (falling away from the Lord) and the coming judgment of God.  It is definitely not a “feel good message.”  Interestingly, he wanted to share soothing, uplifting words about the wonders of salvation, but God put another message on his heart.  Rather than getting to share the sweet sound of a harp, he was led to share the shrill sound of an alarm because a clear warning was desperately needed.

I can relate to Jude. So often I sit down to write a sermon or an article that would be more soothing to the hearers, and I end up sounding an alarm, warning people to get right while there is still time. What can I say? It is the message that continues to resonate in my heart.

TITANIC IGNORANCE

Most people know about the tragic historical events of the “unsinkable ship” known as Titanic. That massive ship, the largest passenger liner ever built at the time, was undoubtedly the crown of man’s oceanic achievement. On April 10, 1912, Titanic left port in Southampton, UK for her maiden voyage to New York City. Although she would be navigating through the iceberg-infested waters of the frigid Atlantic, she was traveling at top speed in order to set a record and make headlines.

Titanic was warned repeatedly of icebergs directly in her path, but she blew off every warning. When the final warning came, about two hours before the crash, radio operator Jack Phillips angrily responded to that important iceberg message with these words, “Shut up, shut up! I’m busy!”

Disaster struck at 11:40 p.m. on April 14, 1912, and the unsinkable ship went down inside of three hours. Over 1500 people lost their lives simply because pride and arrogance overran common sense. Warnings which should have been welcomed and heeded were dismissed as a nuisance and a bother. Looking back, it is hard to fathom the utter foolishness and recklessness of the captain and crew. Without question, stupidity has no bounds when one is deceived and blinded by pride.

I believe our nation is acting much like the captain and crew of Titanic. There are millions of people who are arrogantly and foolishly disregarding every warning from God. To quote the late, great Adrian Rogers, “America is strutting her way to hell, thinking she is too good to be damned.” How deceived can a people be?

GOD’S PEOPLE CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE!

So what do we do? We humble our hearts, heed His warnings, and get right with God. We turn from our wicked way and embrace the Lord’s Word and ways for our lives. The time is now for Christians to get off the fence of compromise and get serious about walking with God. The time is now for believers to shine for Christ in this dark and dying world.

We need some folks who, like Shadrach and company, won’t bend or bow to the pressure. We need some Daniels who will stand up for truth and do what is right, regardless of the circumstances or the consequences. It is the Daniels who make the difference … and God is calling you and me to be Daniels in the evil age in which we live.

Will you stand up for what is right?  Will you speak the truth in love?  Will you sound the alarm and pray for God to open ears and hearts to the warnings?  As the little couplet so aptly says, “Life is short, death is sure.  Sin is the curse, but Christ is the cure.”

Love,

About Dr. Jeff Schreve

Jeff's life has been radically changed by Jesus Christ.
Growing up in a church-going home, Jeff learned a lot about God, but he did not know God. He believed in Jesus in the same way he believed in George Washington: he knew Jesus was real, but had not personally met Him. All this changed one night after a Young Life meeting when he was alone in his bedroom. There Jeff saw his need for Christ and His forgiveness and surrendered his life to Jesus.

As a student at the University of Texas, Jeff grew in his Christian life. He graduated with a degree in business and moved back home to Houston, Texas to start a career in business. There he met his future wife, Debbie, at a single's group meeting at Champion Forest Baptist Church. They were married in 1986 and have been blessed with a wonderful relationship and three awesome daughters and two beautiful grandchildren.

A New Direction
After spending 13 years as a chemical salesman, God called Dr. Schreve to preach. He left his secure position and moved his family to North Carolina to attend Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. It was a scary and difficult move to make ... but it was one of the best decisions they have ever made. One year later, God called them to serve on staff at Champion Forest Baptist Church. In 2000, he completed his Master of Divinity degree graduating from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He graduated with a Doctor of Ministry degree in 2014 from Southeastern Seminary.

Jeff Schreve has been the senior Pastor of First Baptist Texarkana in 2003, a growing and exciting church with 4500+ members.
