Sharing the Gospel

My what hidden treasures I have found while going through almost nine years of blog posts.

Audrey has always had a heart for others and it has been amazing watching her faith in Christ grow. As I read this post I couldn’t help but think how much I have grown these past several years as well. Although it is still out of my comfort zone, I do find it easier to reach out to people than I once did.

“Where do people who are not saved go, when they die?”  That is the question  Audrey asked me last night as I was cleaning up the kitchen. Audrey is very emotional when it comes to things like this, especially right before bed ~ so I really did not know how I should answer her. (She will not be able to sleep and will have bad dreams) After thinking on it a minute, I was very honest with her and explained to her that people who have not accepted Jesus as their Savior would go to h*ll. She thought on that a minute and looked at me with tears in those big eyes and said, “I’m glad I’m saved” I told her that we needed to pray for the lost, so that one day they might ask Jesus into their hearts. Later on she came back and was very concerned for Sarah, because she could not talk and ask Jesus to save her. We had a nice little chat last night; one I think will remain with me for a while. 

 

The more I think about our conversation, I can’t help but wonder how many Christians out there say “I’m glad I’m saved” but with a very selfish attitude. No, they may not say it out loud, instead by how they live their lives.  Not caring about who hears the gospel or not ~ only concerned for themselves and maybe their families. I will be the first to admit that I do not get out of my “comfort zone” much when it comes to this ~ I am very open about salvation when it comes to children, I do not have a hard time asking them if there was a time in their life when they asked Jesus to come into their heart. I can talk to them about living a life that pleases God. But you put me with another adult and for some reason I shut down, it’s almost like I have forgotten how to talk!  I often think to myself, oh I wish I had the boldness of such and such. Do I really? Have I prayed and asked God to help me be bolder? Do I really believe that I can do all things through him?  Starting today that will be my prayer! It amazes me how God can take a 10-15 minute conversation with my daughter and show me many things in my life that I need to change. The first being that I need to have that same love & concern for this lost and dying world that she has for Sarah!

 

Much love, 
Michelle

  1. Wow..your words really touched my heart. Your little Audrey sounds like my oldest Jake who’s 7. He is such a worrier and has also asked me where he would go he he dies. Such a LOUD question from such a little person that it stops me in my tracks. We have expalined our beliefs to him and he does understand that he is safe, however I don’t think his worring has stopped, just moved on to something new. I too feel like when it comes to adult conversation I sometimes shut down unless I am very comfonrtable with that person. Something I will have to pray about as well. Thanks for the good thought s that you have prompted in me this morning..have a great day!
