Do you feel satisfied today? Do you like where your life is going? Do you feel like you’re making progress? Can you see where God is at work in your life?
It’s easy to get bogged down in the daily details. The baby woke up early. Traffic on the highway is at a standstill. The client changed his mind, again.
Sometimes it feels like we’re just existing rather than really living.
Imagine how much worse you would feel if you didn’t know God.
There are people in your life right now, today, who don’t know God and they really need to meet him. Sharing this video on Facebook or other social media can be a great way to start a conversation about what it means to follow Jesus.
A good friend of mine reminded me that I don’t need to wait until I’m an expert to talk about Jesus. I can get started now. If the idea of talking about the Gospel feels like an overwhelming, scary task, don’t worry. You don’t need to be an expert and you don’t need to go it alone.
It’s important to remember that the Holy Spirit is alive and at work in you. Follow his lead, and he will tell you when to speak and what to say.
Jesus said, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’” (When He said “living water,” he was speaking of the Spirit, who would be given to everyone believing in him. But the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet entered into his glory)” (John 7:37b-39, NLT).
If the idea of trusting the Holy Spirit to live through you is new, you can pray a prayer like this to invite him to do so:
Dear Father, I need You. I acknowledge that I have sinned against you by directing my own life. I thank you for forgiving my sins and purifying me through Christ’s death on the cross. I invite Christ to again take his place on the throne of my life. Fill me with your Holy Spirit as you commanded me to be filled and as you promised in your Word that you would do if I asked in faith. Thank you for filling me with the Holy Spirit and directing my life.
