Jesus tells us to tell others about Him. He has asked us to tell them their sins can be forgiven if they come to Him. This news is transcendent and transformational. It is the best news that the world has ever heard. Why then is it so hard? First, there is a very real spiritual battle going on around us. In addition, we often think ourselves responsible for convincing someone to believe what we tell them about Jesus.
The Bible tells us that God is the One who gives the increase. The Holy Spirit is the One who convicts and convinces people of both their sin and their need for a Savior. What is our part? Our part is to simply deliver the message. When we realize that it is God's job to convert, suddenly we are free to tell others about Jesus. It makes something that could have been terrifying, a sheer joy. May you find the joy of telling others the great news about Jesus while placing the results in His capable hands. There are no better hands.
Life Lesson: We tell other people about Jesus because He told us to.
