The relief of being a witness for Christ
September 2, 2011
“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’ve been preaching now for more than 40 years. And throughout my days as a preacher and a minister, there have been times when I’ve tried so hard to inspire, challenge, and motivate people to follow Jesus Christ.
But every time I’ve come up with just the right words, I’m reminded that if I can talk them into doing something, someone else can talk them out of it. And if you just constantly pressure people to follow Christ, pretty soon they’ll just decide to stop listening.
Becoming a Christ follower isn’t something anyone can be convinced to do. Sure, they can pray a prayer, put on the show, and blend in with all the people in church. But there’s going to come a day when what they really believe is brought into the light and they’ll fall back into their old patterns of living.
Following Christ is not something you just get up and decide to do one day. It’s God who draws His children to His Son and supernaturally reveals who He is in their hearts. So when you share the Gospel with others, remember that it’s God, not your words, that saves them. What a relief!
WHEN YOU SHARE CHRIST WITH OTHERS, REMEMBER THAT YOUR WORDS DON’T SAVE BECAUSE ONLY GOD CAN DRAW PEOPLE TO HIMSELF!

Tap into your only true source of power!
When life gets busy, it’s easy to miss your daily time with the Lord. Yet, what you think will save you time actually ends up sapping you of the power you need!
That’s why I want to send you a copy of my popular 365-day devotional book called A Daily Encounter with God.This powerful tool contains a Bible-focused reading for each day that will help you plug into Jesus Christ—your only true source of power.
Along with the devotional, I’d like to send you a copy of my I Am Second story on CD. It’s my prayer that my story will be of encouragement to you or someone you know!
Both of these resources are my gifts to bless you when you give an online donation today. So thank you for giving to help PowerPoint reach people with the Good News of Jesus ’til the whole world hears.
