“Return to your own house, and tell what great things God has done for you.” And he went his way and proclaimed throughout the whole city what great things Jesus had done for him.”
Once when I was leaving a store, a man had set up a table outside the exit and was offering something to passersby – what it was, I’m not sure because he didn’t seem to care about his product. He could have been giving away gold, but his lack of passion made me say, “No thanks,” and walk away.
Then the thought hit me. I’ve seen Christians who act that way about Jesus.
But how can this be?
Charles Finney, the great American evangelist, said, “From the moment I believed, all sense of condemnation had entirely dropped from my mind; and from that moment, I could not feel a sense of guilt or condemnation by any effort that I could make. My sense of guilt was gone; my sins had been forgiven. I felt as if I had never sinned at all.”
Finney went out from that experience to tell anyone who would listen about the Lord Jesus Christ. Finney knew what he had received and resolved to share it whenever God gave Him an opportunity.
Why are some believers excited and enthusiastic about sharing Jesus with others while others are not? I cannot judge, but may I ask you: How convinced are you of the value of your salvation?
We are a saved and rescued people! Jesus loved us so much that He willingly offered His blood in payment for our sins – past, present, and future. We are sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, and our eternal home in heaven is guaranteed. (Ephesians 1:13) That, my friend, is a message worthy of being shared!
Awaiting His return,
