In the dark days of mid-20th century Europe, a lone German decided to make political waves. His choices put his own life in grave danger.
Oskar Schindler was a businessman with factories in countries occupied by the Nazis. Jews everywhere were being shipped like cattle to extermination camps. Some of Schindler’s employees were in danger.
What did he do? He saved over a thousand of them by keeping their names on a list of employees necessary to conduct business. By war’s end, he had spent his entire fortune bribing officials to look the other way while his workers remained in their jobs.
Oskar Schindler took that road less traveled that we’ve heard about.
Mark 16:15 says, “He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”
In another life-and-death matter, for much higher stakes, Jesus has called us who love Him to share the Good News of His sacrifice with others. Sometimes this will place us in danger. Sometimes we will lose friends and alienate family.
None of that matters. All that matters is that lost people who have no other hope for escape will rely on what we tell them about our King.
Jesus has His own list.
Lord, the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross has given us eternal life. Please keep giving us opportunities to reach others with this Good News. Amen
