God Replied

Romans 1:16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ…” (KJV)

     I said to God “I really don’t have many chances to give a verbal witness to others about you  and your love.”

God replied ” Give and care and share. Help others in such radical ways that people will ask ‘Why did you do that?’ Then you can tell them about me.”

     I said to God “I really don’t  have many chances to give a verbal witness to others  about you and your love.”

God replied, “I will allow you to be publicly tempted and you can publicly resist that temptation. People will ask ‘Why did you act like that?’ Then you can tell them about me.”

     I said to God “I really don’t have many chances to give a verbal witness to others about you and your love.”

God replied “I will allow some tragedy to come into your life. As you continue to be loyal to me in your time of trouble people will ask ‘How can you have such faith in times like these?’ Then you can tell them about me.”

Possessions, temptations and grief are opportunities for us to develop stronger trust in God and a stronger witness for God. Is our faith strong enough that He can reach others through us?

     Today I will meet some “evil” people who will enrage and oppose me, some “good” people who will frustrate me and upset me, and come Christians who will ignore me and puzzle me.

As a child of God, I am to pray for all of them and actively love each of them.
