12 For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”
EXTRA READING: LUKE 12
Consider Think about what is keeping you from sharing God’s word with others. Is it fear? Is it because you are like so many that say” I don’t know enough about the bible? Or are you afraid of what they may ask you?
Focus Many times people fear ridicule or persecution for sharing CHRIST. And that does happen. In Luke, he is telling us that the Lord will literally give us the words to say. Certainly, fear of persecution is very real, but the excuse of not knowing enough about the Bible is not. If we are diligently seeking after CHRIST and digging into HIS word, Luke 12:12 tells us that HE will intervene for us when we witness for HIM. HE stands in the gap. We will most likely never know everything contained in HIS word; but we can absorb as much as possible; and, even if we don’t have the answer, we can always search HIS word for it. But God will always honor our witnessing effort if it glorifies HIM.
Ask Ask yourself: What is holding you back from witnessing and sharing your story of how CHRIST has changed your life with those you come in contact with everyday? Now write that down and be completely honest with yourself._________________________________________________________________________________________________
Apply Close your eyes. Think about that day CHRIST saved you. Remember the burdens lifted and the joy that entered your heart. Now if CHRIST opens up a door for you to share that with someone today, don’t miss that opportunity. Certainly your actions reveal this to others, but CHRIST desires for our mouths to open and share words with those around us.
Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord… Acts 14:3
