“To serve Jesus is not always comfortable. To know Jesus is not always comfortable…
I believe that Jesus has called each one of us to share our faith with those around us…The fact is, the call is still valid today. We’re still to go into all the world making disciples of all nations…We need to convince them of the love of Jesus Christ; that He is the Son of God. And it takes time, it takes patience, and it takes gently sharing God’s Word, and you know what? If you don’t know God’s Word, you don’t have a very strong foundation to work from. Sometimes the best way to approach a family member or friend who does not know the Lord is to simply pray for them, and then tell them, ‘I love the Lord but I don’t know enough to tell you everything why I love the Lord yet. Just simply be my friend. Watch how I live and see what the Lord does in my life.’ And you know what? That’s more apt to convince someone of Jesus Christ then any argument you can get into. Use God’s Word but use it wisely.”
