When is the last time you shared your story?
When is the last time someone asked you
Of when you met Jesus, when you responded to Him
when you said Yes to His love
when your life changed?
One day while I was meditating about this
I realized that there are people
in my fellowship that
I touch base with on a regular basis
and who I have never asked them
I have a friend who co ordinates
our outreach to Portland Rescue Mission
The first time you ride with him and the group
you are initiated by being
strongly encouraged by him
to share your story.
It is a breath-holding experience
to discover the Jesus connection
in someone's life.
So are there Christian friends, fellow travelers
that you are close to
you have never asked
Some time over a coffee date
or while riding in the car
asked them their story
and then share yours.
One more thing,
many Sunday goin Christians
consider themselves part of the family
because they have sort of slid in.
They never totally in a moment
of heart loving surrender
recieved out loud
Jesus as their Saviour
Jesus as their Lord.
If that is you
let's seal the deal right now
take a definite step
and pray with me
these words of surrender
Though I say I know you,
I realize I have lived my life for myself only.
I am sorry, and I repent and I ask you to forgive me.
I believe that you died on the cross for me, to save me.
You did what I could not do for myself.
I come to You now
and ask You to take control of my life
I give it to You
from this day forward.
Help me to live every day for You
in a way that pleases You.
I receive Your Holy Spirit in this moment
to empower me
to love You more,
to live for You more.
I love You Jesus
I thank you for Your boldness to be Your witness
to share what Your Grace,
Your love has done for me
that I will be spending
all eternity with YOU.
Now go tell your story
If you have a heart for the
homeless and would like to
be a part of our outreach
at Portland Rescue Mission
on the second Tuesday of each month
Please email me and I will
connect you to my friend
