2014-0128 - be a witness

I am a Child of The King, born again into the family of God through the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior.  He is my strength and my power, my savior and my best friend.  He cares for me like no other; and it is my strong desire to serve Him, to honor Him, and to glorify Him in all that I think, say, or do.  My actions speak louder than my words; and I may be the only Bible that some of my friends and family will ever read...


1 Corinthians 10:31 (KJV) - Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.


I am the recipient of God’s many blessings and He loves me as no other ever has, or ever will.  He has saved me out of sin and debauchery to a life with purpose and reason. 

No, I am not perfect, but He is!  It is my responsibility and my privilege to share the gospel, the good news, of Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior with others.  That is part of the reason I am writing this blog. 

There are many ways to share the gospel.  Some people enjoy going out door to door and talking to people in their homes.  Others like to witness to their co-workers, or the people they see during the course of the business day.

We like to leave gospel tracts stamped with our churches name and address (with a nice tip) for our waiter or waitress after a meal in a restaurant.  A word of caution, please do NOT leave a tract unless you are leaving a generous tip.  It does not honor The Lord and may harden the server’s heart against Christians and future attempts to witness to the server. 

The Fellowship Tract League {click here}is a wonderful ministry and a great resource for gospel tracts.  You can find my favorite tract "Eternal Life is a Free Gift" by clicking here.

I like to smile at people and ask them how they are.  Sometimes that leads them to smile back or to ask how I am.  I like to take that opportunity to tell people how good God has been to me that I am better than I have any right to be through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior.

Sometimes I give a tracts to the people who take my money (or the ones that give me my food) at the local drive through; or, better yet, if we have something special coming up at church I give them an invitation and ask them to be my guest.  I also leave tracts with grocery store clerks, and bank tellers, who handle my money.

Sometimes an opening will arise if I tell people about events going on at my church.  When I run across someone who is down, a listening ear on my part may soften a heart, and give me an opportunity to share the goodness of The Lord.  It’s really important that people know you care!  People really don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.

My Prayer for Today...  Dear Lord, Thank you for giving me opportunities to share the good news of Jesus Christ with the people I meet every day.  Help me be tender to the needs of others so I can approach them in a way that will honor and glorify You!  Help me to love others with a sacrificial love, as Jesus loved me, and to demonstrate that love clearly to them so they will be able to see You through my attitude and my actions.
  
Happy Birthday, Zenice!

We love you!

    That's a good point about leaving a generous tip!
