Introducing Jesus

Every evening following dinner, it's time for a short walk with the dog. Last evening's walk included an especially beautiful sky, in fact, it was stunning. The moon was barely a fingernail sliver and very close by shining brightly were Venus and Jupiter. The sight was quite breathtaking even with the suburban lights aglow. It was the perfect reminder that God's handiwork is all around us. 

There are some that say God doesn't exist. They can't seem to see the work of His hands around them. They are unable to hear His still, small voice in the quiet of the morning.  When they look at their loved ones, hear the cry of a newborn baby, or witness a rainbow they lack the capacity to know that God is responsible for such beauty. Still, God loves them and longs to have an intimate relationship with them because his love is endless and his patience long standing. 

On your daily journey with the Lord, you will surely encounter some that do not know God. In fact, God may place someone right in your path because their only chance to be introduced to Jesus is through you. It may be the Holy Spirit's gentle presence or the kindness you display that will open up a conversation and inquiry about your love for the Lord. In that divinely set moment, trust that God's lovingkindness will be all that is needed to share the truth and provide a perfect introduction to the Lord Jesus.

Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, your justice like the great deep. You, LORD, preserve both people and animals. Psalm 36:5-6
