At the beginning of my week, I seek your strength in all that I am weak.
“So neither the one who plants counts for anything, nor the one who waters, but God who causes the growth. The one who plants and the one who waters work as one, but each will receive his reward according to his work. We are coworkers belonging to God.” (1 Corinthians 3:7-9)
Our church went prayer walking into neighborhoods around our church yesterday. People were a little fearful and had some anxieties as many, though they had been in church for many years, had never gone out walked their neighborhood and prayed over it, those who live there, and shared the Gospel. They were worried they would get it right or be able to convince people about Jesus. However, our role is not to be right. We do not go out needing to convince people. Our role is to simply share the Gospel and pray and speak Jesus over them. If a seed is planted and growth is to occur leading to initial salvation in a person or rekindling of faith, God is the only one who can do that. It is His Lordship and His Kingdom, we are simply, yet powerfully in love to share the Gospel of the grace of Jesus. Only God through the Holy Spirit can “flip the switch” on of faith in an individual.
As Peter stated of concerning Jesus, “And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among people by which we must be saved.”” (Acts 4:12) “name given among people” We are to give, to share the name of Jesus with people. “Salvation in no one else” Jesus is the one who convinces and saves. “Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. (Romans 10:17).
My family, I pray this morning you pray over and resolve, without worrying about being right or convincing someone, to share the name of Jesus with at least one person everyday, including today. In Jesus’ name. Please pray the same for me. God bless you my friends!
I would love for you to share your reflections and prayers with us on this blog in the comment box below.
