“For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them.”
Paul in 1 Corinthians 9:9
One of the most fascinating aspects of accepting Jesus in your life as your Lord and Saviour is the overwhelming shower of love He pours on you. That loving assurance of knowing that you are secure in HIM and that nothing can come against you, which you are not able to overcome by His power and spirit.
The love I am here talking about is not based on any feelings but is based on an unconditional kind of love that while we were still sinners and therefore His enemies, Christ died for us so that we could have eternal life.
Once we open our hearts to such love, selfishness will turn into selflessness and greed will turn into willingness to give to others. It is a fact that the most effective kind of sharing the good news about Jesus (the gospel) is sharing the same kind of unconditional love with others. Theodore Roosevelt once stated a fundamental truth:
“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”
I know that many of you find it difficult to speak out and start a conversation and that hinders you to share your testimony about Jesus. Doing an act of kindness with your neighbour, your working colleague or even that person who has something against you, will speak volumes into his or her life, opening a door for you and the holy spirit to sow the seed of salvation.
My invitation is for you to pray for the Lord to open opportunities for you (and there will be plenty) for you to help others today!, so that you too can become a winner of souls through the love of Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
