The most important work

Recently the Lord has been convicting me of neglecting the most important work of engaging people with the gospel. It is easy to make excuses. I can list many reasons why it's not a good time to talk to people. But God has called us to be His ambassadors. 2 Cor. 5:18 "All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; ... and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us." He has given us and is entrusting us with His message. This is a awesome responsibility.

Tonight God blessed me with the privilege to talk to Nick. The Lord has been impressing upon the importance of asking Him for opportunities and then being alert to His promptings through out the day. We went to Wendy's to have dinner as a family. Nick was sitting by himself and so stopped and prayed that God would fill me with His spirit. Nick's heart was very soft. He believed in God but acknowledged his feelings of being unworthy to go to heaven. It was a beautiful thing to see that the Spirit was already at work to show Nick his unworthiness. We gave him a connecting with God booklet and got his phone number. He even came back and asked if we had another booklet. Please pray for Nick that he would respond to God's leading and put his trust in Christ alone for salvation. Pray also that Nick would be willing to get involved in a local church where he can grow.
