And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come.
Ever just had someone randomly tell you something that you know they could not have known? Ever felt the need to share something off the wall with some stranger? How about just feeling drawn to someone, feeling you have something they need to hear burning in your spirit? That’s God. He is using others around us to speak to us and He urges us to speak into the lives around us. How often do we ignore these things and just walk on by? What if God was trying to use us and we second guessed His voice and just ignored it? I feel we do this a lot in some circumstances because it is so hard for us to get out of our boxes and spread the Good News.
Now the purpose of me sharing this is not to judge or make any one feel less of a Christian because they don’t, it is merely to show how God wants to use us. Tonight I went on a treasure hunt with the revival group. We prayed together at church and listened quietly in silence for clues which would lead us to speak to others about Jesus. We listened and looked for five categories: Location, Appearance, Unusual things, A need and Names. We then divided into groups, compared clues and picked locations and persons we were looking for.
Our group headed for a local store and we began our search. Sometimes the clues don’t always lead us to someone but having them with us and just talking to random people helps. As we approach others we can explain we are on a treasure hunt and just begin talking about the purpose of our mission, to share Jesus. Tonight my friend and I split from the group and we talked to a few persons. One was not really open for prayer but we chatted a few minutes about God and then moved on. Our purpose is to share not be pushy.
We then ran into a young lady who was on break and we were able to minister and pray over her. I cannot describe what a blessing it is to bless someone else just with a word of peace for their lives. To know that you can speak life into another person is just amazing and when you realize it was all God it’s even more Glorious!! I encourage you to begin to listen to the still small voice in your spirit and begin to step out of your comfort zone and be brave enough to walk up to a complete stranger and share the love of Jesus.
Sometimes it is as easy as, “Hey, do you know Jesus loves you?” I think sometimes we as Christians make it seem so complicated when in reality it is just simple truth which wins souls to Christ.
