There are Two Important Parts

They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving the meaning so that the people understood what was being read. Nehemiah 8:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are two important parts to this verse.

The first part I would call keep it simple. Do not use big words or go into big philosophical debates with them. Just share the Message with them. A majority of times they are most impressed with you sharing what Christ has done in your life and through your life. That makes Him real to them.

The second part is to explain what the Bible verse or verses meant to the folks in that culture and in that time so that there is deeper understanding.

So many times I have encountered Christians that quote a Bible verse however when questioned on its meaning in the context of the time and culture they have no idea which makes them appear rather stupid.

Before you go sharing the Message do your homework so you are prepared. This does not take a few days or week but years. Look how long it took Paul before He began teaching (I believe it was two years).

Before you go sharing the Bible, learn it and live it. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge.) bless me with the knowledge on how to deliver the Message in a clear simple manner in which the soul in which it is being delivered to can understand it and have a thirst for me and a yearning to become a Holy child of Yours.

Please bless me with the knowledge in understanding when those who are not receptive to receiving Your loving Message so as to not waste my valuable time while being respectful towards them.

I humbly ask this in the name of the greatest deliverer of the Message Jesus Christ. Amen.

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Must Mean Everything to Us.

Therefore I urge you,brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [dedicating all of yourselves, set apart] as a living sacrifice, holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship.Romans 12:1 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

Most western Christians have it backwards. They falsely believe that Jesus is here to serve them. They only call on Him when they want something from Him whether it is to solve a problem or whether it is because they want something from Him. When He blesses them with their request they are rude and ungrateful and do not even thank Him.

That is not the Christian life.

The Christian live is to dedicate ones self to Christ in serving Him. His will is to always supersede theirs. We are to lay our desires upon the alter and to completely surrender to their will in their lives. After all we were created to do specific works He has prepared for us to do.

For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:10 Holy  Bible Amplified Version

The Christian motto is to be: Christ first, others second, self last. Joseph a son of Jehovah

When others see our sacrificial works they will become intrigued and ask us why  we live such a life. This will be our greatest testimony and evangelism of all. We are to be a living testimony for Him.

Do not tell me of your Christ, show me Him in your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah

“Christianity must mean everything to us before it can mean anything to others.” — Donald Soper              

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) my eternal King for the supreme privilege of being Your humble servant. I praise You in Your magnificent name. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
