Change Your Outlook

“How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in Him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”  Romans 10:14-15

 

 

Do you need spiritual encouragement?  Then tell the good news about Jesus to someone who needs to hear, and witness the power of God to save souls!

 

A friend of mine who had started a church in Texas was having difficult, discouraging times. Some of the people in the church were fighting against him. He called a mentor in the ministry and said, "What should I do?"

 

His mentor said, "Leave your office today and share the gospel with five people before the day is over."

 

My friend said, "That won't change anything about my situation."

 

His mentor said, "Maybe not, but it will change your outlook on your situation, because it will remind you of the main thing."

 

I've found it true in my life that when I share the gospel of Jesus with others, God uses it to bring encouragement to my own heart.   Ask God today to give you boldness and to help you see opportunities to share the gospel with someone who needs to hear a good word about Jesus.  It will be for your good as well as theirs!

 

Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
