Do you realize there are people around you today who don’t believe and don’t realize the road they are on? Do you realize there are people around you today who are feeling bad and don’t know there is an answer and there is hope? Do you realize there are people around you who need to know they matter and are loved? Do you realize that there is a plan at work for you to make a difference in their lives? Do you realize that there is a plan at work for you to give them hope? Do you realize that there is a plan at work for you to pass God’s love onto them? Do you realize that you may be the only thing in their life at the moment pointing them to the love of Jesus? Do you realize you have been put in such a place at such a time for a greater purpose? Do you realize that you have been put there for such a day and such a time as this?
So what are you going to do with this responsibility? What will you do with this purpose? What will you do with this plan? Today is the day that the Lord has made, so let’s rejoice and be glad in it! Don’t stop believing! Take time to listen! Make a difference today! Be the difference today!
Have you had an encounter with Jesus? Do you realize He gave His life to the point of death on a cross for you? Do you realize that God loves you so much that He sent Jesus, His one and only Son so that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but would have everlasting life? Have you started a relationship with Jesus?
Do you feel the pain that everyone should get this encounter and experience and relationship with Jesus? Do you feel that loss for the lost?
Do you want your family and friends to get to experience this? Do you want them to be able to receive Jesus into their hearts? Do you realize you may not be able to convince them to go to church with you but that you may have to be the church to them? By the way you live in front of them! By the actions and responses you take! By the words you use and express!
How do you handle the pain or anguish for the loss? How do you handle the passion and the love? How do you balance them in your life and in your relationship with others!
Will you keep believing for them? Will you trust God’s sovereign plan for those you love? those God has brought into your life?
Today is the day! So what will you do with it? Don’t waste it! Keep believing! Make a difference!
What will they see when they see you? Will they see Jesus with skin on?
