A human being lives, but he is given life.
Christ’s method of witnessing was very personable; He mingled with men as one who desired their good. He showed His sympathy for them, ministered to their needs and won their confidence. Then He bade them, “Follow Me.” Since this was Christ’s of witnessing, when we receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit and Christ begins to live more fully in us, He will begin leading us to “mingle” with those in our circle of family and friends, putting in our heart a desire “for their good.” The greatest good is for them to come to know Jesus Christ and their Savior. Christ method was to take the initiative in contacting those around Him. He wants you and me to do the same.
Everyone has hurts, disappointed dreams, frustrations, and problems with which they struggle with. This is the very reason Christ has lead you to them. He knows their needs, and knows that you
have the answer for them. How does this apply to the Spirit-filled Christian? First, pray for Christ to come and fill you with the Holy Spirit and give you the passion for souls that He has. Make a list of those in your circle of family and friends who you feel do not know Christ. Begin praying for each of them every day. Appling the principles listed in the previous devotional. We must be willing to invest the time and energy needed to bring them to know Christ. Our interest must be genuine, we my truly care for them and want them to know God the way we do. He just needs us to speak a few words of encouragement to them. God will give you the words to speak.
