THE STORY OF JESUS: Acts 8:26-40
“The Spirit told Philip, “Go to that chariot and stay near it.” (Acts 8:29)
When it comes to sharing my faith, I do not like being pushy.
All my reasons are likely mere excuses, but I still hold back.
But I like how the Spirit simply prompts Philip to go near the man.
Just hang around in places where others are, and let the door open.
The bigger challenge for me is paying attention to these Spirit nudges.
As I sit here in this coffee shop, is the Spirit nudging me?
I don’t have to jump right into a gospel presentation.
Just respond to the person where they’re at, what they’re doing.
Trust that the Spirit that nudged you will also give you a way in.
As a Jesus follower, I am led by the Spirit of Jesus.
He is leading me to places where I can share the love of Jesus.
If I am not looking for them, I will miss these baptism moments.
A baptism moment is when the Lord wants to pour out His grace through us.
Today I will make a point to follow His nudges, and look for the open door.
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, help me to relax and wait for Your nudge. Help me to look for the natural connecting point to speak to others. Help me to trust that if You set me up, You will lead me through!
