Making time to talk to someone about Jesus should feel like some thing we need to squeeze into our schedule. Yet we make it a chore, something we should make time for and get around to if we have time. Our priorities may need to be updated, when was the last time you honestly stepped back and took a good look at your priorities? What is important to you here and now compared to eternity?
“A righteous man who falters before the wicked Is like a murky spring and a polluted well.”
Proverbs 25:26 NKJV
I honestly not sure the last real time I had a deep conversation about Jesus with someone who needed to hear it. I have, but lately I feel it has been to long. Why? Am I too busy? Probably not. Am I worried about people’s view of me? Maybe.
It’s time to shed our pride. It us time to share to love a Jesus and his sacrifice for us. So many missed opportunities, we can’t afford not to share his grace with those around us. Jesus is returning soon and if we don’t start doing something now it will be to late.
On our own we are not righteous. With Jesus and the Holy Spirit living in us we have the power to be great witnesses to those around us. Trust him for words and insight. Let’s start sharing stories of the lost being found. Encourage on another that Jesus is still redeeming people. If the angels rejoice over one sinner repenting, should we not rejoice as well. Should we not be excited to share the love that flows in us?
Dear Jesus, move in our lives, Holy Spirit, we need your power to move us past just talking the weather and the game to sharing Jesus with our friends, families and coworkers. Give us the words to speak, show us exactly what the person we are talking to needs to hear. You love them and want them to repent and return to you, give us a heart for the same. Jesus, we want to see people as you do. Amen
