Your saved. That is great! How about your friends and family? If they were to die tomorrow, do you know where they are heading?
Sometimes the hardest discipleship is within our own families, friends and neighbors…where to start?
- Ask God to guide you to someone. Pray about the people around you that are lost.
- Introduce your friends, family and neighbors to Christ. Tell others how your were saved and what glorious things He has done in your life. Listen to what the Lord is telling you to say for each person. He will guide. Make it clear that becoming a Christian is not doing something, but receiving someone, our personal savior Jesus Christ.
- Use the tools that He has provided, God’s Living Word. “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 NKJV
