The older I get the more I desire for the people around me to come to a knowledge of Jesus. Families rarely allow you to invade their lives with thoughts of faith. Most of us then are often challenged with their lack of knowledge of sin, hell, heaven and eternity.
Will we ever come to a point in life where we ask, did we spend enough time persuading those without Jesus to come to a knowledge of Him? The question here is, what causes us to shy away from that moment ?
John 3:16 says ‘For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.’ (TLB). The bottom line is, our lives should serve the introduction of Christ to those around us, that would become the greatest gift we might ever provide them.
When you know Jesus, you know you are here to invite others to also know Him.
Father, help us to shape what we say to the people we love to show them who Jesus is and what He sacrificed for our eternity with You. Amen.
Be intentional in the months ahead. Write a list of those you know and pray for. That they might have a Jesus encounter, until they are saved.
