Have you met my friend
Have you met my friend yet?
I recently had cause to reflect on how many time I have opportunity to introduce my friend Jesus and just how I can miss the chance.
Have you ever had an annoying phone call in the middle of your day?
You know the type.
You find yourself talking to someone from a marketing company who is obviously from overseas.
They are stilted in their speach and its obvious that they have a limited grasp of English.
We all have been there from time to time.
I used to get frustrated with these nuisance calls, which seemed to chew up my time unnecessarily.
But now my challenge is to see that so- called interruption as an appointment.
My chance to tell someone about my friend Jesus.
They are ringing my home (my workplace so to speak) and my job is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.
It has been great to see how my attitude has changed.
Now I see it as my way of fulfilling the great commission of Mathew 28:19 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations”
You have to be polite and patient with them, tell them you will listen to what they have to say if they will listen to you talk about the good news of Jesus Christ. Firm but friendly.
Imagine bringing Jesus to someone in India or Asia and all from the comfort of my own home.
Mission- minded without leaving my home.
It can change your whole focus and make an annoying interruption into a divine appointment.
Now that’s a God idea…
