But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them. Acts 2:13 New King James Version
When I was a teacher we would always get into discussions about why I live different from other foreign teachers the Chinese students have met. It would be explained to them that I was a Christian. Then we would get into debates about Christianity. After about six months there would only be about four students out of a class of fifty that would be open to accepting Christ.
That was because just as there were many that heard but not all accepted with Peter.
So too it was with me and so too it will be with you.
It is only those whose heart is open to hearing the Word that will be receptive to the Word. So give the message, if people’s hearts are open they will come to you, if their hearts are closed it does not matter what you say or do, they will refuse to listen and you are therefore wasting both their time and yours.
Prayer: Please Jehovah KalEl (voice of God) bless me to be your voice to the people. Please give me the wisdom to be open to those who are receptive to Your life giving word. Please give me the wisdom and grace to be hospitipal to those who reject Your wise word. I humbly request this in the name of he who taught us the proper manner in behaving towards others Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
