What We Don’t Say: Day 10

I’m sure theologians have written libraries about the different types of witnessing and given them names and descriptions and how-to’s. I am not a street preacher. My insides go cold at the thought of grabbing a microphone and yelling at the masses as they pass by. I have participated with one and held the flag looking for an opportunity to help someone with their luggage or something heavy and I had that opportunity. I find my ministry is different as all of our ministries are different. I would rather help a random stranger that I will never see again than plant the seed of the gospel without watching it grow. I witness to family, friends and coworkers and only if they’re receptive to it. Be prepared for rejection.  The Bible prepares us for tribulation including being outcast for our beliefs.  Know when to walk away, you are not going to “win” people over all the time and your best witness are your words and your actions.  God doesn’t need you to prove that He exists.

What We Don’t Say: Day 6

There are limited opportunities for people to accept the gospel. This isn’t something that people can put off until later as later is not guaranteed. At the same time, I can’t stress this enough. YOU are not going to save anybody. Not a single person ever in your lifetime. GOD is the one that saves someone and they have to make that decision on their own. It doesn’t matter if you beat them over the head with a Bible to repeat your sinner’s prayer just so you would go away, it’s not up to you to tell anyone if they’re saved or not. You are only responsible for sharing your testimony and the gospel and answer any questions you can. You won’t even know your entire life if something that you said turned that light switch on unless you’re lucky and they tell you.
