God thinks YOU are the best option!


How many times have you felt God wanting you to talk about Jesus to a neighbor or friend? Maybe, it is when a co-worker suddenly asks about your weekend plans. Maybe, it is when a neighbor is hurting, in the hospital or in need of help. Or, what about those moments that someone knows you know Jesus and is coming to you for answers. One thing remains true: we all wish some else could answer their questions about God!

God isn’t interested in using pastors, experienced Christians, or zealous evangelists to reach your neighbors and friends. He wants you. He needs you… AND He thinks you are the only answer to your friend’s question about Him!!Ken Mitchell

Why is that? I’m guessing it’s because people like me have made you feel like you need a college or seminary degree in the Bible. Or, older Christians have convinced you that 20 years of Bible study “experience” is necessary. Or, “bold” Christians who love evangelism expect you to love it too!

Wanna know the truth? God isn’t interested in using pastors, experienced Christians, or zealous evangelists to reach your neighbors and friends. He wants you. He needs you… AND He thinks you are the only answer to your friend’s question about Him!!

Why you? Because your love, your care, and your trust in Him are way more powerful than spiritual debate, archeological digs, and lots of Bible verses!”Ken Mitchell
But what about…? Wait! Before we start making excuses like Moses, let’s remember that to your friend the greatest spotlight on Jesus is your life, your love, and your testimony of who Jesus is! Believe or not that is exactly what your co-worker, basketball buddy, and next-door neighbor needs!

So next time… Just share Jesus. Just share why Jesus loves you. Just share why Jesus comforts you. Just share why Jesus has been your answer for eternal life. Just share! Why you? Because your love, your care, and your trust in Him are way more powerful than spiritual debate, archeological digs, and lots of Bible verses!

Speaking of the Bible… check out what the Gospel of John says:

“By this everyone will know you are my disciples, if you love one another.”John 13:35

Ready to be that spotlight with you!
