“My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.” (Psalms 119:172)
Some of you won’t like what I have to say today. If you are in a mood, maybe save this post for another day.
First, let me say, I am NOT for easy believism. I am ANTI the whole “1-2-3 repeat after me” type of soul winning. It grieves me to hear someone be sloppy in their witness for Christ. BUT, I don’t think we should throw the baby out with the bath water. I believe we need to still talk to people and try and reach them for the Lord.
When you become a student of the Word and have a daily practice of prayer and study, I can guarantee you that you will want to tell someone about the Lord. You will have reflected on how God’s Word has transformed your life and you will desire to share that transformation with someone else.
Now, not all of us are called into the ministry. Not all of us in the ministry are called to go to the foreign field. But ALL of us can tell others about the Good News.
When I don’t get to talk to someone about the Lord, it wells up inside of me like pressure. I get antsy and feel like if I don’t go knock on a door or clap at a gate like we do in Brazil, I will explode. But is that Sheri? Is it me causing me to want to tell about the Lord?
It is the Righteous Word. I wouldn’t know I was supposed to go and tell if Jesus hadn’t told me to! He is the One Who told me to not hide my light! The Perfect Lamb of God is the One who commands me to be the salt of the earth and a city that cannot be hid. He instructs me in the way I should go, and He wants me to share that with others.
My tongue needs to be speaking about His Word. Yes, my actions and my testimony should back that up as well. But I need to be speaking about Him.
Let’s never become silent about Salvation. Let’s never take for granted our eternal home. I want neighbors there, don’t you? Let’s be busy talking about God and it will keep us from gossiping about others.
Until Next Time, Lord willing,
