Recently, I’ve been staying more busy than usual with some big projects going on, however, the last few days, its seemed that the Lord is further from my mind… because I’m thinking on these other things instead. Because of this, last night, I determined not to work on those projects today, but rather spend that time [even though rather small] with the Lord. It’s been neat to see Him bless that today.
This morning I woke up with the song, “Glory, I’m saved, Glory, I’m saved, my sins are forgiven, my debts are all paid!” If that is true for you, is it possible to have a bad day? My worst day has to be better than an unsaved person’s best – I’m saved, I know where I’m going – the Lord has purchased me, and covered all my sins in His blood!
At church this evening, a sad story came up about a 2 year old boy who fell from the 11th story of an apartment near us. What a sad story, we for awhile discussed the shortness of our lives. Why do we not work harder to get others saved? I went into Wal-Mart tonight while in town for church to get oil and filters for my car, and was amazed to see God’s provision – the filters were on sale in a cart at the front of the store $1/each – and my style was in there. Little things, but it is neat to see God’s provision. Back on the topic of getting people saved, God worked in my life in that way, yet on my way in, I realized I had few tracts to share with people, yet didn’t go back to my car for more. We
see [know people are] people dying around us, yet do so little to warn them of their destination.
The day started with “Glory, I’m saved,” and after church, a tract on the CD in my car ended with an excellent question. In response to all that Christ has done for me, saving me, giving me victory, blessing me with safety, health, and material blessings beyond the vast majority of those before me, “how then can I not bring them to Jesus, when He’s done so much for me?”
Side note: A culturally Jewish co-worker asked about my music today, and commented on what makes Christian music – is it that the people who do it are Christian? After a further discussion, he concluded that “you’re a Christian singer since you sing around here.” I asked, are you ever going to be a Christian singer?” He responded that he doesn’t sing.
Me: “Will you then be a Christian live-er?”
Him: “I’m Jewish.”
It was neat to share with him how in reading this morning in Zachariah, I read about how the Jews will one day mourn over “Him whom they have pierced.” They have already pierced Him – Jesus – and will yet mourn for Him. Whom else have they pierced that they might mourn over? Praise the Lord for allowing me to inherit some of the treasures of the Jews – I’m just a Gentile grafted in!
Let’s bring them to Jesus!!!
