For years I used the excuse that it just wasn’t my gift; that others were set apart by God to be good at evangelism. But telling others about Jesus is not a spiritual gift; it’s a responsibility and privilege that belongs to everyone who claims Jesus as Lord.
I was reminded of that when I read an article recently about 7 Habits of Highly Effective Soul Winners. You can read the entire article here but I want to share just one habit that challenged me.
Soul winners pray for those with whom they have witnessed.
They pray for those with whom they have not yet witnessed.
They pray for divine appointments and witnessing opportunities.
While God has given us the task of sharing Jesus with others, He hasn’t left it up to us alone. He is already at work stirring people’s hearts and we are simply participating with Him. Staying in step with God happens when we pray about the chance to share Jesus and stay ready at all times.
