Live and Learn

Yesterday I was speaking with one of my girls at work, and she speaking about her father and how he is ill. She was telling me how she’s going to go visit him and spend some time with him since they’ve only given him a few months left to live. I asked her if her father had a relationship with Christ and if he was a believer, but she stated that she wasn’t really sure. So, I encouraged her to make sure that she speaks with him about this as soon as she gets there. Although she was nodding her head yes I could see the hesitation in her mannerisms. So, I’m going to tell you just like I told her: each one of us doesn’t know 100% what we’re talking about, because we have not seen heaven face-to-face. But we do know this, we sense Gods  presence every single day. We have proof beyond proof for the existence of Jesus throughout history.  Even if we only know a little bit and if we are not confident in our words, some words are better than none. All of us have doubts and all of us have fears at some point in our lives, but that does not negate our duty as a Christian to spread the wonderful love of Jesus.  There are eternal consequences to not having a relationship with God. The Bible tells us that Jesus is the way the truth and the life and no one can come to the father except by him. Knowing that this is the way, we should seek and strive every day to tell people the way to heaven. Even if you don’t say everything completely right, just say it.  Maybe people will have a ton of questions and you won’t have answers for them, but that’s OK. You can simply say to them well, I don’t know the answer for that but how about if we look some stuff up together or can I get back to you with an answer with that. Some people may even argue with you about things and say 0h are you some Bible thumper now, but once again it’s OK. You got this. Don’t wait until it’s too late to introduce somebody Jesus.  And if you feel that your walk with Christ is not strong enough, what are you waiting for? none of us know the day or the time of Christ returns, nor do we know what’s going to happen for one second to the next quit hesitating. For this is that moment in time but eternity is a very long time to live.  Yes, we have a choice to make. We either believe and spend an eternity in heaven, or we just believe and spend an eternity separated from God forever. There is no in between.
