A prayer of mine during this time of prayer and fasting has been about reaching the lost. Jesus says this in Matthew 28:19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” As followers of Christ, that command applies to us.
As we pray for those we hope will come to know Christ, pray also for boldness and opportunities. God wants to use you to reach those in your life who do not have a relationship with Jesus. You are a light in a dark world and you have been positioned where you are to reach those around you. How can you share Christ with those in your life today? Spend time praying for those who need Christ and for opportunities to be used.
We often use fear as an excuse when it comes to sharing our faith. In those moments we need to remember who God says we are and cling to what his word says about us. When we step out in faith God will give us the right words to say to those around us. Being used by God is like nothing else. It brings purpose and joy to our lives. Who has God placed in your life to be a light to? Be bold and share what God has done for you!
