Prepare To Be Amazed…..2016
“Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel.” Ephesians 6: 19
Many people have recently asked me why I have so much success in leading people to Jesus. They wanted to know if I had a rehearsed plan or spiel, like the “Roman’s road or The Four Spiritual Laws”, that I used to get folks to “buy in” to Jesus. I can honestly say that I have no advance plan, agenda, script or formula that I follow in sharing Christ with others. My sharing with them is always entirely spontaneous and Spirit led, moment by moment.
What I say to people can be a mixture of my personal testimony, actual words of Jesus, or other pertinent passages from the bible. I always try to speak from the heart, not from a script. I seriously doubt if I have ever used the same exact wording with more than one person. I feel the main reason I easily connect with others is because I am authentic, real and genuine. With me what you see is exactly what you get with absolutely no guile or pretense. (But even I have bad days) I sincerely love all people and it shows and that draws people to me I am certain. I view all people as precious and valuable to God and potential members of my Spiritual family. I see the spark of HIS Creation in everyone’s life and only want to offer them a full and rewarding relationship with Jesus and The Body Of Christ.
Another reason I have been able to impact lives with the Love and acceptance of Christ is that I pray continually for Jesus to prepare the hearts and minds of the people He is going to put me in direct contact with. I also pray and submit my will to Him asking that He continually prepare my heart, mind and message; so that I can always be ready for those He sends my way on a given day. This is not rocket science. I purposely and intentionally make myself available to Him and others. When I do this He fully equips me and makes me more than able to share the Truth in Love with whosoever will. You see it really is ALL about Him and not about me.
I hope you can now see how simple sharing Christ can be? It doesn’t take smarts and extreme biblical knowledge. All it takes is an open heart and complete surrender to the pathway He picks for you. Along the way on that path you will encounter those who need His Love, Grace, Mercy and Truth. Then in the proper moment simply open your mouth and allow Him to speak His words through you. It is all about simple conversations, real give and take dialogue. Worked for Jesus, worked for Paul and it still works for me. “Perfect Love casts out all fear.” Trust Jesus to use you in this manner also, and then prepare to be amazed.
