I never know who is reading the blog until I get a comment, even weeks later, on a particular post and invariably, the one commenting says, “I found your blog while searching a specific topic online, and…”
That makes me realize how far-reaching the www can really be. AND, it is humbling. I kind of wish to curl up in a ball, suck my thumb, and rub the corner of a satin-edged bam bam (aka baby blanket). Instead, I’ll curl up in my Slanket (thanks Valerie) and type away in response to one such comment received yesterday afternoon.
Patty, I don’t know you and I don’t know where you are. I did get your comment yesterday pertaining to a post this past fall entitled, “How to Share the Gospel.”
I will frame my answer based on what I was reading at the time, 1 Thessalonians. I encourage you to look at that epistle of Paul’s and read it, read it, read it. Read it. While you’re reading it, make a list of the things you see in Paul’s life that pertain to sharing the gospel. If you have time, read 1 Corinthians 15 on what the gospel is. After all, it’s imperative that you know what to include as gospel when you share it.
Then, come back tomorrow and I’ll share my list. Okay? This is for you, Patty, and anyone else out there needing a reminder of what sharing the gospel is all about.
Thanks for being honest in your comment about your inadequacy to share.
I think God lets us feel inadequate so we are stronger in Him and what He will do through us as we step out in faith to be obedient to share the gospel with others.
