I came across this question recently, which has resulted in the wheels turning in my own brain. I have followed Jesus for thirty-six years, studying at Bible College for four, serving in ministry for twenty-five, leading and teaching women's Bible studies and Sunday School classes, discipled and mentored women, etc.etc. and yet...
Today I am struggling with how to share Jesus with someone I have known for a long time. There is hesitation on my part. Jill(not her real name) knows I have a "strong faith", her words, not mine. I want her to know more, I want her to know Jesus who can take away pain and suffering and be the lover of her soul. I want to be concise with the message, I want to be loving, I want her to see Jesus and not Jody.
What is the message of the Bible in one sentence? How would you answer that question?
Would you pray for me as I find my way to the foot of the cross today, asking the lover of my soul to so penetrate my heart and mind I will find the words for not just Jill but whomever he puts in my path.
