But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?
This passage is so exciting. Like for reals, so exciting! We are being called to share the word of God with those around us. Woah. Be that with our family, school friends, team mates, colleagues, the list could go on. This is ordaining you to be the change in someone’s life, to have the privilege of sharing God’s amazing grace and love with someone.
Now I know what you’re thinking, that’s sounds fantastic but it isn’t that glamourous, the heavens don’t open with a light beaming down angelically on you when you do that. Or maybe, for the less theatrical amongst us, the people we’re talking to are just not that interested in what you have to say. I have been in that place so many times, where you’re just talking to a blank wall, or the person you’re talking to shuts down and attempts to discredit every word you say.
Don’t be disheartened.
You have planted a seed.
Just because you may not see the fruit of your conversation immediately, that doesn’t mean that something isn’t stirring within them. Keep praying and you will see God’s hand at work, in both your life and others around you. Pray for opportunities and you’ll be surprised with how God hears you. Have courage.
