How wonderful to know You! Jesus, what can I say, how awesome to walk with You ...wanna be close.. and to tell others! I ask that You'll do that again, yes, please use me.. use us in a way that glorifies You.
Feelin' grateful! I just had the excellent privilege of praying with a man from Algeria named Nabila ..who got it.. who heard the simple Gospel and just repented as he gave his life to Christ. There's no better place, or company, or thing, or person to give it to! Please do pray for him and his family.
No politician on the left or on the right can do that for anyone. I like to vote, but Christ alone can save and wash us clean. He alone is the One who can make us loathe what we used to love (destructive sin habits), and love what we used to loathe. Religious men try to change sinners like me from the outside in, but Jesus is gentle and changes from the inside out. Have you invited Him in.. as Savior and Lord (the CEO of your decisions)?
"If a commission by an earthly king is considered a honor, how can a commission by a Heavenly King be considered a sacrifice?" —David Livingstone
"It is the only happy life to live for the salvation of souls." —D. L. Moody
I pray that God gives you His grace today in a very special way as well... that He helps, empowers, equips, and guides you with His Word so that you can understand more and more how great His Love is towards you, and even help you know His specific will today so that you can keep on growin' in your relationship with the Lord. Amen.
I'm thinking about Christ's words in Matthew 10:32, "So everyone who acknowledges me before men (not always so easy until we pray - takes some boldness), I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven."
"And this is the record, that God hath given (FREE, not sold) to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son." 1 John 5:11, emph. mine
Listen, you too have a story. So share His story, and share yours - people will so relate to you then with the questions or fears or struggles you had..or how you felt. Tell em how you took steps of faith and came to know Jesus. What a joy!!! Fun!
"Let's quit fiddling with religion and do something to bring the world to Christ." —Billy Sunday
Jesus told us to come "learn of Me" but, "The Scriptures were not given to increase our knowledge (primarily), but to change our lives!" —Dwight L. Moody
"Be assured, if you walk with Him and look to Him and expect help from Him, He will never fail you." —George Muller
You already know how one of the very best ways to "build a bridge" when sharing some Scriptures with a person who does not have a relationship with Christ is through telling your own personal testimony in their language. facebook.com/shareJesus
