“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” ~ John 3:17
Quick and simple !!! For those who know the truth, free they should be. For those who know the truth, should be shedding truth to those who are unaware. We should be meeting truth with truth. It might not be easy but it is possible. Those who debate you with the truth you are giving, could be doing it for many reasons. Some examples are;
*they probably had a bad experience regarding the topic
*it could be a test of your faith, trust, and believe in the Lord
*the way you delivered the message
*they are probably very aware of the context and felt like it was given incorrectly
*it’s possible they just don’t care
*it might not be their season to understand what you are sharing, but it doesn’t excuse you from not sharing the gospel
As we can see there is an endless list of excuses, but yet no excuse to not share the love of God. There is no reason to not shed love. There is no reason to not shed hope, and faith toward someone.
Whether we feel like we are ready to take that step, isn’t up to us. The Lord encourages us to pick up our cross and follow him. He encourages us to spend the gospel to every ear. He doesn’t say if they want to listen, if they meet a certain requirement, if they ask for it or not. He said to just speak and he will fill your mouth with what you need to say.
In that note love and don’t judge! We get nothing out of judging besides judging ourselves. The moment you point the finger, you are causing fingers to get pointed at you. Your thoughts upon someone else, are your thoughts about yourself. So let’s help save the world with the Lord.
When in doubt pray until the Lord reveals answers, confirmation, and direction! When in doubt prayer will get you out !
