Sharing Your Faith

cb devo mar 12“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God; In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” John 1:1,4 & 5 (NKJV)

Ever become discouraged when sharing your faith with a friend? We witness through our actions and words with no apparent results; let’s face it–we often get discouraged! Yet if we enter a room filled with light with a sealed box in our hands, the box is filled with darkness. When we open the lid it does not affect the light at all! But if we enter a completely dark room and have a sealed box in our hands with a brilliant light turned on inside it’s a completely different story. When we open that lid, the darkness flees and although the room may not be bright as day, the light makes a great impact! So it is with our witnessing: we may not see the results we are hoping for, but we are leaving small “boxes of light” in that person. One day, God will enter and they will realize “he that follows Him shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life!” Don’t ever give up instead exchange your discouragement for His patience and press through leaving the results in His hands.

“Father, people are so precious in Your sight, even with their imperfections. Help us to see them with compassion as You do, and never get weary of lifting them to You each day, interceding for their salvation.”

For His Glory
