Are you negligent in sharing the Gospel?
I am. I tend to live in my own world.
– Solving my own problems.
– Rushing to the next thing.
– Hurrying through the grocery store.
– Driving in traffic.
– Cleaning toilets, sweeping floors.
– Avoiding people.
Being task oriented, sharing the Gospel is not on my to-do list.
My agenda is what matters.
However, recently I decided to pray for change.
Now, every morning, I pray for God to provide divine appointments.
He is at work in the lives of people, so I ask Him to drop them in my path.
I even put tracts in my foyer, in hopes a lost person will stumble to my doorstep.
It Finally Happened
Well, last night, it finally happened. While cruising through Walmart, wishing I wasn’t there and eager to get home, I asked an employee for sesame seeds.
She was a Hindu lady from Nepal. Friendly and eager to serve, she walked me up and down aisles, refusing to give up on our hunt for sesame seeds.
I knew this was the opportunity I had been praying for. It was easy.
She was eager to hear the Good News. She listened with a hungry heart.
And she was even unconcerned about the people around us who heard our conversation.
After sharing the Gospel, I left her a tract. Hopefully, I will see her again. If not, I know seeds were planted.
I wonder how many lost people—people unsatisfied with life and searching for a Savior—I have passed in the aisles of Walmart. Probably a lot.
Sadly, for years, I have been too consumed with myself and my to-do list to notice.
I Want To Be Faithful
I want to be faithful in God’s agenda: redeeming souls.
It’s great to check off my to-do list, but it’s FAR greater to share the Gospel.
Divine appointments will come, but we must ask for them and wait patiently. God is eager to engage us in His redemptive work.
Have you had any divine appointments? If so, please share them. It encourages and sharpens the body of Christ to hear what God is doing!
