Sharing the Word

Don't you just love it when you read the Bible and it speaks to you

I mean not in a voice that says, "HEY!"
But a voice that grabs your heart, because it is just what the Holy Spirit has been whispering to you.

This morning I was finishing up the books of Thessalonians...I became exuberant when I got to this part...

2 Thessalonians 1:11-12
*from The Message Bible:

Because we know that this extraordinary day is just ahead, we pray for you all the time-
----pray that our God will make you fit for what He's called you to be, pray that He'll fill your good ideas and acts of faith with His own energy so that it all amounts to something.  If your life honors the name of Jesus, He will honor you.  Grace is behind and through all of this, our God giving Himself freely, the Master, Jesus Christ, giving Himself freely.

Why does this make me giddy?

Well, God put it on my heart to do a series of posts on my blog on sharing our faith, kind of like a 101 on how to lead others to Christ.  I have been praying and asking God if this is really what He is asking me.  As I read this, God said, "I am praying for you...I am speaking this over your life." 

So guess what...I am going to be seeking Him and asking Him the best way, to simply share what's on my heart with you!  I've asked a friend to join me in this venture...would you pray for her to hear from God on this too?  Let nothing hinder us preaching the Word to the ends of the earth.  Indeed a blog is one way to go into all the world and preach the gospel (the Good News of Jesus!)

My life verse is Matthew 4:19, God spoke it to me when I was thirteen years old; I have been holding it tightly since then..

"Come, follow Me,"  Jesus said,  "and I will make you fishers of men."

Isn't God's word amazing - I was doing my devotional this morning & was thinking how the bible doesn't make any sense if you don't have the Holy Spirit to interpret the message - got me praying for some dear people in my life who I know have read God's word, but it doesn't seem to have effected!

Looking forward to your posts!

Thank you for sharing that Scripture, and your faith.

I will be praying for you and your friend. I'm looking forward to what God has for me to learn through you both.

I'm reading Jeremiah right now, and I'm thrilled how God used him to speak to the people. He never stops doing this and it's awesome!
