Jesus loves you! It is not just a just a coincidence that every pastor speaks of that saving love every Sunday.
We have Good News to share. For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life (John 3: 16). Can even a causal acquaintance see Christ’s love in our lives?
Every time we interact with another person, whether driving, standing in line, or doing any of our normal day-to-day activities, we are missionaries. We don’t have to be able to give a sermon to be a witness; we just have to be ready to share our story about God in our life.
Sharing doesn’t have to be a speech; after all, you only have a minute or two in the check-out line. You do have time to be helpful, time for a friendly smile, and time for a pleasant greeting acknowledging that God has given us this wonderful day of rain or sunshine. That smile may open the door to a relationship and the opportunity to share the Gospel. God uses us to open the door and then He does the rest!
Verse of the Week
So faith comes from hearing and hearing from the word of Christ. (Romans 10:17)
Last Week's Article
What’s on your bucket list? Swim with sharks? Write a novel? Bucket list items are not urgent; someday, we may (or may not) see our dreams come true.
In contrast, urgent things need to be done NOW! Grab that toddler heading for the busy street! Eat healthy! Call 911! Inaction could result in dire consequences.
Into which category does sharing Jesus fit? How about our joy in serving the Lord through the LWML? Are these bucket list items, or are they urgent? Consider this: Each day that passes is another day lost to sharing our joy in the Lord with our families, co-workers, friends, and neighbors.
As Paul said to his friend Philemon (v. 6), “I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith.”
We might say that The Time is NOW! to move “share Jesus” from our bucket list to our do-today list!
