My grandson, Max, told me that all the kids in his second grade class will have Jesus in their heart now.
Amazed, I said, you mean all the kids in your class are Christians now? He shrugged and said, “No—I mean I told them how to have Jesus in their heart; then I prayed with them. So, I did my part.”
God’s Holy Spirit directs us to speak, pray and witness to those that are without Christ. We sometimes think we should see the fruit immediately and are discouraged from our witness when our efforts bear no evidence.
Satan uses our discouragement to convince us that we are not a good witness. Remember, satan is a liar. (John 8:42-44)
Our lifestyle and attitudes should be a constant witness to those around us. We should live with such integrity and compassion for others that our relationship with Christ should be obvious. (Matthew 7:15-17)
Sharing Jesus is simply telling our friends and acquaintances about somebody we love. Satan hates for us to share Christ! Realize your discouragement and feelings of inadequacy to witness come from the devil.
When Christ is an important part of our life, we can’t help but talk about Him! The Bible says to always be ready to share God’s love.
I Peter 3:15-16 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.
