Spreading the joy of the LORD.
I have always wondered what it really was when person would say that they are an evangelist as a child. But I do know now, but then at the time growing up I had thought them to be such as a pastor of a church only. But as I understand it now it is someone who will go and tell others about the word of GOD at any given time. Anywhere, and everywhere.
Now when I say anywhere it is because you don’t know who it is that will need to hear the word of GOD. Anyone who the LORD will lead to you or you to them. We who love the LORD will always need to know scripture and be ready to explain why we all need the LORD and how we all are sinners! And even if we are at the level of not knowing all scripture, we can speak to others with a JESUS heart.
There are times when people when come over to start a conversation with me that really do not know me. Usually they are older people, who seem to be lonely. People my age are usually busy with kids and working so, they don’t really have the time to talk. They usually have a cell phone to their ear walking fast to their next destination.
Many people will say they do believe in GOD and know Jesus. But you know what, it is the fruit that they bear that will lead you to wonder. No, none of us are perfect and without sin. What I am saying is if this is so, they would be doing all that they know how to do to get into heaven with the help of JESUS as mediator.
They would do their best to avoid sin in all ways possible knowing if they don’t make it into heaven they will burn. They will want to talk about JESUS at any given time and not turn from you when you do.
They would want to share this joy and smile and call you a brother or a sister in the LORD! You will feel the connection and bond of the Holy Spirit! And not ashamed to mention their love and faith too!
Test the spirit when talking to people about the LORD when you do not know them. Many will feel you are judging them and will turn away because of the sin that they are in. Many feel they have done such horrible sins that they can not be saved. But this is not up to them, and only GOD will be the judge to this. Turning away from JESUS will not help them at all. And we as disciples of JESUS need to spread the joy.
If you are looking to find JESUS because you were led to this post, then you have already made the right choice by seeking answers to what being saved is. JESUS is the answer to salvation and accepting JESUS as your savior. It gets better after this through prayer. Anything , any negative thought or anyone that will try to turn you away from JESUS at this point is not from GOD. It is from the devil that lied to you to sin in the first place and does not want you to seek righteousness and have a place in heaven.
Satan was an angel in heaven called Lucifer and have caused a war there because he and hs minions wanted to take over heaven. He lost that battle and was kicked out of heaven. So you should think about this….this is why he works so hard to keep as many as he can out of heaven. because he can not be there because of the choices he made.
Isaiah 14:12 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Fall of Lucifer
12 “How you are fallen from heaven,
O [a]Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
So with all of the evil in this world, those who love sin are following satan. Not GOD and HIS loving perfect , good ways. Please do make the choice to follow and walk the path of righteousness, there is nothing but pure unconditional love, peace and joy there with GOD’s way of life. You will have some strife in life simply because this is not heaven. But you will have the love of GOD and HIS son JESUS always with you. Stay in prayer, read your Bible and stay away with those people who are negative and lost in the ways of the world who run from GOD and JESUS.
Romans 1:16 King James Version (KJV)
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek
Tell people with GODLY discernment about the Gospel and the invitation to the best party they will ever attend in heaven!
May you all have a blessed day. Be blessed as you read this blog and the others and share this to inspire others who need to know about the joy of JESUS and salvation! Pass the joy forward!
