Why Didn't You Let Us Know?

"Why didn't you tell us sooner?"
The words came sad and low.
"Oh, you who know the gospel truths
Why didn't you let us know?
The Savior died for all the world;
He died to save from Hell,
But we never heard the story --
You didn't love enough to tell.

How sad it will be in that great and final day when those in the world will have to face eternal judgment before Him who is longing to be their Savior. But it is equally sad to realize that those in the church will have to face judgment before Him who had sent them to share the good news of His great love and sacrifice with the world.

Scripture: Luke 19:10; Matt. 28:18-20
