A Conversation with Jesus-The Unashamed
A CONVERSATION WITH JESUS~
“Anyone who trusts in Him will never be put to shame.” Romans 10:11
“I am not ashamed of you. Don’t be ashamed of Me. Don’t deny Me or I will deny you before the Father. Speak the Word. Preach the Word. Teach it. Study it. Meditate it. Confess it. Dream it. Reveal it. Tell it. The Word has brought you LIFE. The Word is the Bringer of LIFE to others. Freely you have received, now freely give. Peace give I to you. Peace leave I with you.”
OUR INCENTIVE TO SERVE!
Here is a trustworthy saying:
“If we died with him,
We will also live with him;
If we endure,
We will also reign with him;
If we disown him,
He will also disown us;
If we are faithless;
He will remain faithful,
For he cannot deny himself.” 2 Timothy 2:11-13
Don’t be like a turtle hiding in its shell. Be bold. Take risks. Get out there and share the gospel. Just go to a loved one, or to a neighbour. Share what Jesus has done for you. Share all Jesus is to you. Keep it simple. Keep it sincere. Speak it from the heart. Make it personal. Lace it with the Word. But one or two verses will do. Don’t try to save them. This is not your job. It’s God’s. He draws, The Word reveals and convicts. You and I have the joy of telling. Just relax, and let the Word speak through you. That is all. Do it once and you’ll be free to do it again.
Remember this: “Your enemies can hurt you, but your fear defeats you! Only those who risk going too far will ever know how far they can go.”
If you feel foolish, that’s okay too, because this is what God tells us,
“For the message of the cross is to foolishness to those who are perishing; but to us who are being saved it is the power of God unto salvation.” 1 Corinthians 1:18
Jesus says this, “He that is faithful in small things, I will give greater things.”
So start small and build up. Just make an effort. This is all God expects of you. This, and no more.
Take a small step for God, a giant leap for mankind. Start telling the hell-bound that they can be heaven-bound. Take a risk, and compel them. TELL THEM!
