John Hagee (August-01-2022) Daily Devotional: 1 Peter 3:15 - But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.
Am I my brother’s keeper? We are, and may the Lord help us to be true to His holy word.
Romans 10:13-15 tells us that whomever calls on the Lord will be saved. How will a person call on Jesus if they have never heard of Him unless someone speaks up? We are God’s messengers of grace.
Soul winning is not a gift; it is a commission from Christ. He commands every single believer to be His witness, to tell His story. How do we respond when someone shares a problem with us?
We can listen, show compassion, and offer intellectual solutions, but more importantly, we can point them to the One Who holds the power to help. As simplistic as it sounds, Jesus is the Answer. When we take their hands and begin to pray, heaven comes down. Remedies that we did not see will suddenly become apparent. The knowledge that we do not possess will pour from our mouths.
When we stand up and step up, God will do things through us that we thought impossible. Ask Him to alert you to every opportunity to share His glorious message. Oh, the treasure that we have to give!
Blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Determine to become a messenger of His grace so others may embrace the hope and love only found in God the Father through Jesus, His Son.
