Evangelism: Week 2 - Devotion 2

Read this quote and think about it today:

“Jesus himself did not try to convert the two thieves on the cross. He waited until one of them turned to him.” - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Does that quote mess with you a bit? It should. It makes two interesting points you should spend some time thinking about today. 

1)    You can’t save anyone. Period. It’s God’s work in God’s timing. But you can faithfully serve as an example of what a life lived in relationship with Christ looks like. And you can be there for people when they have questions. 

2)    Are you living in a way that others would turn to you with questions or needs regarding their faith? Let that one sink in a bit . . . 

Good thoughts to think about today. Make sure you spend time in prayer and thought wrestling with these truths.
