Reaching out in friendship: Be yourself

This one is tougher than it looks but it’s part of God’s beautiful mosaic of the world.

One of the things I love most about Jesus is that He wasn’t phony – full of integrity and with many sides.

Have you ever noticed that people have incredible phony-o-meters?  They’re not even sure we really need our product.

We’re automatically suspicious of salespeople because we know it’s their job.  What would we think if they we doing this on their own time – would anyone really believe in their product then?

Share Jesus only when you want to.  So many of us are sharing Jesus because they feel obligated to.  I want to share Jesus because I love Him and because He’s done so much in my life and in the lives of those in the Church.

Do what you’re good at doing.  If you are a businessperson, do business.  If you’re not – don’t.  If you live to serve the poor, then be a humanitarian worker.  If you don’t – don’t.

Say what you believe.  And tell them right up front.

 

 

 

 

 

About evanlaar1922

Have you ever noticed how many special ways God refers to us, His dear children? He calls us His beloved sons and daughters, the righteous, children of the kingdom, His anointed, royal priesthood, the faithful in Christ, His temple, His friends, and so many other loving names that speaks to who we are in Him. Also in many cases, the names we are given at birth have both biblical and heavenly identities tied into them. Our Heavenly Father who watches over us daily has created the ideal path for each of us to take to travel the journey of life, just as a father will make plans for his own child by putting things in place at a very early age for education, health, graduation, and marriage. God has predestined and equipped each of us to carry out a specific purpose that will create the design He desires to be in place for His kingdom to be effective in the earth.
