Telling Others the Gospel, Even When It's Difficult
- Thursday, October 29, 2009
At that, I asked the Christian woman to lead her in a prayer. I could have done it myself. It would have been great. But I just sat back and watched as the Christian woman in front of me at first hesitated, then turned to this Hungarian woman, put her arm around her, and for the first time led someone to Christ.
I challenge you to pray: Dear God, I want that experience. I want to know what it is to win someone to Jesus Christ.
Why be ashamed of the Gospel? It is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes (romans 1:16). It changes lives here and now, and for eternity!
The Dutch evangelist Corrie ten Boom had a God-given desire to win others to Christ. One of her poems says, When I enter that beautiful city / And the saints all around me appear, / I hope that someone will tell me: / It was you who invited me here.
Whatever our place in the Body of Christ, let's actively and prayerfully invite others into God's kingdom. After all, God doesn't have a plan A, a plan B and a plan C for evangelizing the world. He has only one plan and that's you and me.
