I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
(Psalms 91:2 (NIV))
What do you say about the Lord to other people that you know and to those whom you meet?
I realize that this question makes one assumption about you faith and that is that you share Jesus with the people in your life.
Do you share Jesus?
What do you say about Him?
Perhaps I should ask what you do not say, for it is often the lack of words that says the most? Do you tell people that it is only by His grace that you made it through a specific time in your life? Do you tell people that He has been there with you through every step of your life, both the mountaintops and the valleys? Do you tell people that when you didn’t have the strength to make it through the wildernesses of life that He was with you? Do you tell people that He carried you when you simply could not make it through another day? Do you tell people that He has been there even when everyone else has abandoned you?
One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
(Proverbs 18:24 (NIV))
Most people who profess a faith in Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior will share the concept of needing Jesus with other people if asked, but it is a rare believer who will go out of their way to find these opportunities. No matter when you tell others about Jesus, it is much more effective if you will simply share with people what He has done for you. This opens up the door for others to ask what He can do for them.
