STATE OF MIND
Good Morning G,
I just wanna thank you for being God and saving my life.
Thank you for dying on the cross and giving me chance to live right even though we always fall short.
I thank you for protecting my family and bringing us thus far. In Jesus name🙏🏽
My testimony maybe foolish to others but it’s a tool to God.
“So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.”
2 Timothy 1:8 NIV
The Resource...The Word!
The Wisdom of “Foolish” Words
Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 1:18-20
I know very well how foolish the message of the cross sounds to those who are on the road to destruction. 1 Corinthians 1:18
CHECK OUT these statements from insurance forms-forms where drivers had to describe the details of their car accident in the fewest words possible.
Think about this: Sometimes your explanations of Christ and what he has done in your life will sound just as weird to non-Christians as those statements sound to an insurance company-and to us. You claim that Jesus Christ was the Son of God, and people blow you off. You invite people to trust Christ and experience his life changing power in their lives, and they laugh at you. You explain what God has done in your life, and they insist that you’re over-emotionalizing your religion.
You want your non-Christian friends to welcome your life-giving witness, but don’t be totally disheartened if they don’t. You never know how the Holy Spirit will use your words. And no matter how people react to what you say, you are sharing God’s utter wisdom. Give God time to take your words to the heart, where they will make a real difference.
REFLECT: How can you explain to your non-Christian friends what Christ has done in your life?
PRAY: Ask God for courage to share how you got to know him-even when you fear your friends might mock you.
