All Christians should want to bring others to Christ. As we begin to experience and delight in Him there should grow a desire to share Him. We live in a country where the majority of its citizens have already heard about Jesus. There are some who have not heard, from lack of attention or interest. Most, I believe, have heard and rejected Christ at some time. To speak for Him, can seem futile, a waste of time. Every excuse and reason is given why they cannot believe in Him.
They abandoned the God who made them, and rejected the Rock their Savior. Is this the way you repay the Lord, O foolish and unwise people? Is He not your Father, your Creator, who made you and formed you”? Deuteronomy 32: 4-6 & 15
We must not stop trying. How can we make our friends, family and co-workers realize the joy and peace of believing God by following Jesus if we do not tell them? Oh how I want them to confess that Jesus is Lord and believe that God raised Him from the dead so they will be saved (Romans 10: 9). How can we persuade them that Jesus brings peace even through trials, and that he gives hope for a glorious future. Our prayer should be the same as Paul’s.
Ask God to give me the right words as I boldly explain God’s secret plan…pray that I will keep on speaking boldly for Him as I should”. Ephesians 6: 19- 20
Jesus also gave us a promise.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses… Acts 1: 8
May we continually pray for our friends and acquaintances that they would accept Jesus and the Holy Spirit will give us courage and tell us what to say.
