We live in the land of opportunity, but we often miss the most important
Think about your daily routine. You start your day at the gym, surrounded by people. Do you put on headphones and distance yourself from everyone?
It’s time to cook dinner but your cupboards are bare. You head to the supermarket and, again, find yourself surrounded by people. Do you rush through the store, brushing past everyone, to get in and out in five minutes?
When we’re out in public, we expect to see people … and we do what it takes to avoid eye contact. But avoiding eye contact is avoiding an opportunity.
We are called and mandated by God to spread the message of the gospel. And to ensure our success, he has filled us with the power of the Holy Spirit.
Of course, God doesn’t expect you to lead every person you meet through the salvation prayer and to the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Rather, we each contribute an element, according to God’s direction, to bring that person to Christ. One plants the seed, another waters it, and God increases it. This requires no special skill or training. God will use each of us where we are, utilizing the gifts He has already placed in us. And He will make something out of our efforts.
Now imagine the possibilities. Knowing God is in control, we can share the gospel without the fear of failure. Suddenly, we’re drawn to the same people we used to ignore because we know we have something they need. We are free to be purpose-driven and focused on our task to reach every soul in America with the gospel.
Don’t let another day of missed opportunities pass you by.
