Finding someone who would die for a godly person is rare. Maybe someone would have the courage to die for a good person. Christ died for us while we were still sinners. This demonstrates God’s love for us. (Romans 5:7-8. God’s Word Translation)
We’ve all heard it. We don’t get good to get God; We get God to get good. It is all too common for people to tell me that they would never want to go to church with me because if they did, they would burn. It is difficult for people to understand that Jesus can forgive them of all the mistakes they have made. What is even more difficult is trying to explain to them that He died on a cross for them.
Reaching out to people who seem to have life all together can be a challenge, but it is what we are called to do. You will never truly know where a person is and what they may be seeking for their life. Pray that God leads you to those who will be receptive to Him and the love that He so graciously wants to give them.
Prayer: Lord, I thank you for letting me watch friends walk to an alter and give their lives to you. How truly blessed I am! Lead us to the right people today. Let your love shine through us. In Jesus name, amen.
