Are you confident in sharing the good about Jesus with strangers ?
I confess that although I enjoy writing about the Lord, I am less comfortable sharing the life-saving message of Salvation person to person.
I realized that with the Holy Spirit’s help, I could do so much better in this area. I learned this today when I was driving to my friend Bonnie’s flower shop to pick up some roses.
A man was riding a bicycle down the middle of the road . I had to slow down, and it gave me time to carefully study the message that he had written on the back of his blue jacket.
It was : ‘JESUS IS THE ANSWER. I TRUST HIM FOR EVERYTHING.’.
There, on the back of his jacket, this evangelist had written a summary of the message of Christianity !
These will be the last roses sold for awhile in our town, as shops are closing.
I thought of the women in Columbia who grow these beautiful flowers. They often work under very difficult conditions to support their families. I prayed for them, and for the people facing job loss globally, as this virus crisis continues.
The bicycle rider taught me the importance of sharing the Gospel in its simplest form : Jesus is the answer. Let us trust him for everything. Let us trust, and not be afraid.
