“Look, I now teach you these decrees and regulations just as the Lord my God commanded me, so that you may obey them in the land you are about to enter and occupy. Obey them completely, and you will display your wisdom and intelligence among the surrounding nations. When they hear all these decrees, they will exclaim, ‘How wise and prudent are the people of this great nation!’ For what great nation has a god as near to them as the Lord our God is near to us whenever we call on him? And what great nation has decrees and regulations as righteous and fair as this body of instructions that I am giving you today? Deuteronomy 4:5-8 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Do you notice that it is when the Israelite’s lived according to Jehovahs instructions that the surrounding nations became intrigued by them?
So too it is to be with us in our quest to bring others into Jehovahs family.
I hear so many preachers say we must evangelize the world to bring everyone to Jesus and we must share Jesus with the world.
Never mind telling them, the most effective way to bring others to Christ is by living the Christian life. When others see you are different from the rest of society they will be curious. THEN, you can share what Jesus has done in your life and through your life.
A Christian must walk the walk before they talk the talk. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Those whose hearts are receptive will move towards Christ while those who prefer living in darkness will walk away. Do not go after those who walk away. Leave that to the Holy Spirit to move their hearts towards Jesus. If they will not listen to the Holy Spirit, they sure will not listen to you.
Prayer: Please Jehovah GELAH RAZ ( the God of the Revealer of Mysteries Colossians 1:26 ) bless me to live a life that emulates Your beloved son Jesus Christ so that when others see this mysterious manner of living they will be drawn towards me and I can be blessed with sharing the simple truth of the blessing of being a loved child of Yours, which is a mystery to the dark world. I humbly beseech Thee in the name of the Light of love in this dark world, Jesus Christ. Amen
The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving Father to be shared with others. May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah
