“And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy.” (Acts 2:17-18)
That verse doesn’t say “all churches”… it doesn’t say “all Christians”… it says “all flesh.” Well, surely God meant to only say “Christians”, right? No, He meant “all flesh.” Do you have any relatives that aren’t Christians that don’t know Jesus? Sons, daughters, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, nephews, or nieces? God is pouring out His Spirit to all people and wooing them. The Holy Spirit is wooing them. This is what God is doing. He is giving them an opportunity over and over to choose Him. And God has given us His Holy Spirit. He uses us to be witnesses, to be bold in sharing with others the truth of His scriptures.
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
People are looking at people differently, looking at Christians differently. The world is not changing for the better, it’s changing for the worse. We need to be changing for the better and that change is how God wants to use you to share your faith with others.
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
We were created for good works. As we grow spiritually we grow in the love of Christ. So be a doer and be creative in the ways that you do the Word of God. The Holy Spirit will show you how to do it. He will show you how to pray for the sick, to share Jesus with most people. You might wind up baking cookies and take it to your lost neighbor next-door or help your neighbor accross the street repair his cooler. The Holy Spirit will lead you into any and all of those things and the Holy Spirit makes a difference between a dull boring life and a vibrant over flowing electric adventure that we were created for.
Heavenly Father, Continue to open my heart to share with other people. Help me to take moments to share with my family and friends about Your love and goodness. Thank You for giving me the power of Your Holy Spirit. Thank you for allowing me to have an adventurous life and continue to change me to be more like You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
