Here lately my heart has been hurting for lost people. People who let go of their relationship with God, people who don’t understand, and those who don’t want anything to do with Him. It’s heart breaking. It’s serious and so sad. We all know people who are like this. The first question that comes to my mind is why?!? Why does this happen? They have allowed things in there life that opened the door for the enemy to press in and confuse them with lies. Either that person wasn’t raised to believe or they were but backed away. It normally happens slowly. It always starts with a selfish desire. One thought at a time or one temptation at a time has lead them to a place where they have no connection with God whatsoever. (If you haven’t read my blog on Connection click HERE ) Or maybe they were raised to believe there was no God and science is the answer. They have never fully allowed God into there lives and have no understanding about it at all. Maybe they think us Christians are just crazy people believing in something “impossible.” This kind of person has never encountered Gods mighty work. They are all in the facts and stuck in thought. They haven’t opened there hearts. They haven’t experienced it, therefore how are they suppose to know? Well we have to speak up!
Live It Out!
If we want to save the lost we need to bring Jesus to them. Not keep it in our circle of church friends. Most unsaved people don’t want to come to church and don’t want anything to do with any of it. You should always try though. The presence of God in Church can do miracles but it’s hard to get people who don’t want to come to come and experience it. Most don’t even want to open themselves up to it. We as Christians are to make disciples and spread the word. The bible tells us to! When we live out our day to day lives we are suppose to be a living example of Gods love and grace! Not just in our words and the things we share on Facebook but by the kindness in our eyes and the look on our face. The way we communicate to people every day. The things we do to help. People who aren’t saved don’t always feel the presence of God. They have pushes themselves so far gone they don’t have any connection. But they do watch how we act and how we look. (Go and read more about this subject HERE ) Our outer appearance is very important!
God does so much for me in my life and has blessed me with an incredible testimony. Not because of anything that I’ve done but because of who he is and how much he loves every single individual he created. When you give your life over to Christ it gives him the permission to do amazing works. Blessing, favor, healing, joy, peace, I can’t even put into words what all he can do. It’s a never-ending list. But when these things happen we need to SHARE!!!! It’s so very important! I’m not talking about just sharing it here and there to your fellow christian friends and family. I’m talking about an obnoxious share to people who don’t believe. When you pray you can actually say “God give me an opportunity to share what you have done.” He will! Trust me! I’ve been in that situation. When the opportunity comes you need to be prepared. Ask God “God, please give me the words to explain myself so they can understand.” He will help you! I remember the very first time I shared my testimony at 11 years old on TBN (If you don’t know that is a christian television network) and my parents helped me pray this prayer. God really spoke through me. When I got done I had no idea what I said. I knew God communicated through me. When you ask Him to He really will. So share your story. Maybe it will speak to people and spur a thought. You never know what God will do when you I’ve him the glory and credit.
In other words, don’t waver in your faith. God’s word is full of promises and he will always win. Be secure in that. Strive to have a consistent lifestyle. Don’t say one thing and do another. Talk to God and educate yourself in his word on a regular basis. Basically what I’m saying here is that we need to be prepared for any kind of situation to come our way. If it’s being able to share your testimony, withstanding temptation so you don’t end up lost and confused, or if its just living your life everyday as an example. We need to be ready and strong in the Lord. We need to be ready to speak up!
