Happy New Year for 2018.
We read in John 6:56-66 that some of believers following Jesus turned away and stopped following Him yet we read a little later in John 18:8-9 That Jesus says He has lost none of the people God entrusted Him with.
Should you leave your job to travel the world making disciples? Yes and No. If Jesus tells you to this the answer is YES but start with the people God has entrusted you with.
We can get so busy with things of God that we can easily forget God in it all. Let's start this 2018 by examining our hearts, repent from sin that the Holy Spirit points out, spend more quality time with God daily and the let your family and friends pick the fruit from your life. Show them you are a new man with a new heart.
Learn to share the Gospel by practicing the (cups and cookies Gospel presentation) which is only one way but an very effective way. Share this with your Colleagues at work and your friends at home
What if you stand in front of God one day and you claim to have made many disciples all over the world and He asks “What have you done with the ones I gave you” ?
Be encouraged and go into the harvest, it's ripe and ready. If you are afraid DO it afraid! God goes with you!!
Reino and Ilze
