How About a Cup of Cold Water?

Introduction: There’s nothing like a cup of cold water on a hot summer day! Do you need a drink? Is life handing you a scorching east wind? Will you give a cup of cold water to someone and quench their thirst?

Who needs a cup of cold water?

Those dying in Sin! (Matthew 10:40-42) – “And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.”

People are facing death everyday. Many are not ready to meet the Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus said, “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:22-23).

And again our Lord said, “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:13-14).

This statement by our Lord indicates that most people are not saved and thus not prepared to go to heaven. Have you made preparations?

Have you trusted by faith Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior?

Note: There will not be any cold water in the lake of fire…. only fire and torment.

Conclusion: Not only do those who are dying in sin need a cup of cold water, but also those who are dying from sin! Will you give a cup of cold water to someone today? According to Jesus, it will not go unrewarded!
