(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – Jeremiah 31-32 & 1 John 4)
This really brings things down to the nutshell level!
How do I go about witnessing? I believe that just-getting-started Paul’s formula is a good one. He preached who Jesus was and what Jesus did.
This verse simplifies the process even more. My witnessing must center on Jesus being the Son of God. Without that focus, the train is already off the tracks.
Acknowledging that Jesus is God’s Son is part of believing that what He said and did was important.
What He tells us to do we want to do. His Word (Bible) becomes our guide.
We are in constant communication (prayer) with Him because He lives in us and we live in Him.
“Lord, I want to please You in everything I do. You are the Son of God. I thank You for dying for my sins. I thank You for confirming Your power over death by rising from the dead. I thank You that You are preparing an after-life place for me. What a place that will be! Forgive me for my lifestyle that denies You. Continue to prick my conscience when I stray. I desperately need that! Help me to manage my time so that at the end of the day I am rejoicing in You instead of trying to restore my relationship with You. I love You, Father!”
