In every season there is always something to share about Jesus. During Christmas, we are here to remind people that Jesus and His birth is the reason for the season, not Santa Clause. It is not about all the gifts we can receive, but our minds are focused on Jesus. If we are moved to purchase something nice for people in need, that is showcasing God’s love through you. During Easter, we are here to remind people about Jesus and what He did for us on the cross and the resurrection. This is the reason for the season, not the Easter Bunny. It may be fun to hunt for Easter eggs, but our focus should be what Jesus did for us on the cross and that through Him we have forgiveness of sins. During Halloween, we are here to warn people about walking in darkness and doing things that God hates. Even if it one day out of the year, we are to continue looking to Jesus and allow His light to shine through us. And every other season, holiday, family gatherings, trips, and while we are on the streets, we let the Holy Spirit lead us. In doing this, God opens our mouths and gives us words to speak to people. Though in our flesh we may feel afraid to talk to people about our faith, God gives boldness to those people that trust in Him. We are then able to do things that we were not able to do on our own before like heal people that are sick, preach the gospel, and witness to people one on one.
Evangelism is a gift of the Spirit, of which showcases your true love towards God and your fellow man. And when you get this gift of God the Spirit will be so strong that all you will want to do is share the gospel message of the cross and resurrection of Jesus, while helping others. This we do, for Jesus said, 1“go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.” (Mark 16:15,16) We do this willingly, as God’s servants, for 2“we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (2 Corinthians 5:20,21) This is the reason why we go out and witness for Christ. Our love for Him and others leads us to do this. Even our hearts are moved to help those in need. Therefore, the homeless are also assisted by our efforts to love everyone as Christ loves us. It is amazing to think of all we can do when Jesus and His Word is alive in us. So keep reading the Bible daily, praying often, while desiring to do God’s will above all else. Then, will you do great and mighty things in God’s kingdom. And though it isn’t not you doing the work, it is God’s mighty hand working inside of you, because of your faith in Jesus.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I am so blessed to know You and to pray to You now. Thank You for being there, even right by my side, to hold me and to bring me into Your presence. I can feel Your abundance of love and light all around me. Thank You, God. Oh, how I love You. Every time You take me in and put Your arms around me, I know that I am the luckiest person to be alive. Why is this? Because I am free. God, because You love me so much and never want me to fall, I am able to walk differently. Things I never thought I could do, I am able to do now, because You are there right with me. Yes, Lord, You have given me freedom from my sins, that I might experience what true joy and happiness is all about. I don’t have to worry about different sins, bad habits, and addictions wrecking my life, for You are my shield. Surely, the enemy will never prevail as long as You are for me. Lord, You have done great things in my life and I give You all the praise and glory because of it. If I have become a witness for You, while on earth, I am honored to be one. Because the Holy Spirit is in me, my heart breaks to see so many people in the world that are lost and are in need. Therefore, it is the least I can do to share the gospel with them and to help any person that has a need. And because I know that You hear our prayers, to pray with them is the least I can do, for your healing is for me and everyone that has faith. I love You, Lord. You are my greatest delight. All I desire is to lead people to You and to be with You forever. Amen.
