Who’s Your One?
Intentionality – Look for opportunities to have spiritual conversations with your one.
The TIME is NOW!
So often, we put off what we don’t want to do today. Procrastination is one of the most critical failures of the Christian in sharing our faith. We are not promised a “tomorrow”. Today is the day of salvation.
The Bible describes our lives as a “mist” or a “vapor”. Here today, gone tomorrow. There needs to be an urgency to sharing the gospel. No one knows what could happen tomorrow. We are not promised another day. When death comes, it most often happens when we least expect it. We can be so focused on living our lives that we can miss opportunities that God puts into our path.
1 There is an occasion for everything, and a time for every activity under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1 (CSBBible) The whole chapter of Ecclesiastes 3 reminds us to redeem the times. 11 Again I saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift, or the battle to the strong, or bread to the wise, or riches to the discerning, or favor to the skillful; rather, time and chance happen to all of them. Ecclesiastes 9:11 (CSBBible) Why take a chance. Why not redeem the time and start the conversation today. Trust God to lead you and give you the words.
Notice that the word Intercede precedes the word intentionality. Prayer must precede sharing the gospel with someone who is not a believer. These are spiritual issues and need to be entrusted to God to guide and lead. We can’t save anyone. God does that. Thus we need to pray and wait on God. Unfortunately, sometimes God initiates and draws us out to share the truth and we want to wait. The time is NOW! Sometimes we get ahead of God but more often than not, we tend to put it off.
32 “Now concerning that day or hour no one knows – neither the angels in heaven nor the Son – but only the Father. 33 “Watch! Be alert! For you don’t know when the time is coming. Mark 13:32-33 (CSBBible)
Don’t wait. Don’t put it off. The TIME is NOW!
Pray, and then just do it!
