The valiant Inviter
William Shakespeare wrote the following line in the tragedy of Julius Caesar “Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once. Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, It seems to me most strange that men should fear; Seeing that death, a necessary end, Will come when it will come.” Shakespeare meant that Cowards die a thousand deaths because of the shame they have from not fighting, for running. Shame eats at the soul in a thousand different ways. It creates a gulf between your mind, your heart, and your soul, between how you believe people perceive you as a person. You become lower than death. A thousand times lower. The valiant rush in to join the battle, they may taste death, but it will never be but once. They will never feel shame, will be perceived by others with pride and admiration. Death will only come once in their lifetime. Valiantly invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
