The only way others will come to Christ
August 16, 2012
“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day.”
I can honestly say that, over the years that I’ve been in ministry, one of the most astonishing things to me has been the lack of response to the Gospel message from many. For most followers of Christ, I think the message just makes so much sense to us that we can often become frustrated when others just don’t seem to get it.
Yet when an invitation is given or a Gospel message is shared, there is almost always at least one person who leaves without Jesus Christ and doesn’t accept His free gift of salvation. And the best explanation for this is that for someone to see their need for God’s grace, God has to open their eyes to it.
That can make us a bit uncomfortable. It’s our own human inclination to think that we’re in control. And if we have the right words and the right inflection, we can open people’s eyes to the Gospel. But the Bible is clear: only God can do that!
Instead of this creating frustration, it should create relief in knowing it’s not up to us to save others. So share with confidence the message of salvation with others, knowing that only God can open their eyes to His grace.
SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH CONFIDENCE THAT GOD—NOT YOUR PRESENTATION—WILL DRAW PEOPLE TO HIM.
