I joined twitter about 2years ago, but only started taking it seriously late last year. So far, I love it! twitter is very interactive and responsive. I have a couple of followers and some fellow bloggers I often interact with, e.g @cassie_daves @worshipandswag, @chinomnsop @sisi_yemmie to name a few. I’m quite active and I discuss everything! so kindly follow me ^.^ .
Last night was very lovely and value adding. Maggie of @worshipandswag blog tweeted this scripture:
“I was in a cab on my way to church sometime back with a Muslim driver, and we got into a conversation about God”
“Actually the driver wasn’t even a Muslim, I assumed she was. She was an Indian pagan”.
“She asked me where I was headed and I said “church”, she smiled saying “I love people who go to church”
“She went on & even shared a testimony on why she believes there’s a “God”. I was happy at her recognition but she had not yearned for salvation”
“This lady(driver) actually said she felt unworthy, and was such a sinner so God wouldn’t answer her prayers”
“On hearing that I was so passionate about “correcting” her notion on God’s faithfulness, trying to explain the Concept of Grace.
“I went on as if I had the power to “convert”or help someone experience a conviction. Forgetting that my job may just be to plant that seed.
“Getting back home, the holyspirit brought to my attention that ‘it’s the spirt of God in man that gives understanding’ Job 32:8
“He also brought this scripture to my understanding 1corinthians 3:6 “I have planted, Apollos watered; BUT GOD gave the increase”
“You can preach all day long, but remember your job is NOT to “save”. Your job is to demonstrate the love of God.
“That just changed my orientation towards evangelism or outreach. Let the Holy Spirit do his job.
“I no longer try to convince anyone about the existence of God or his power. I just live in Christ and let his light & power do the talking”
“You see 1 Corinthians 2:14 is too apt! It says ” The person without the Spirit does NOT accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, But considers them foolishness and CANNOT understand them because they are discerned ONLY through the spirit”
“The moment you grasp this, your walk with Christ & others becomes easier. You meet someone, SHOW the love of God & if necessary use words.
“Which brings us back to being a child of God, you are as bold as a lion, the light of the world, like a city set on a hill that CANNOT be hidden.
“Dear friends, you CANNOT be truly sold out to God & the world won’t recognise the paradigm shift. You must be different! You must stand out.
“What will be your witness? What makes you approved if you’re just like the rest?
“Let me back it up scripturally why you must show your self approved. The importance of doing good works, and even men should recognise.
“Matthew 5:16 Let your light shine before MEN in such a way that they may SEE your good works, and GLORIFY your Father who is in heaven”
“However that shouldn’t make you a hypocrite unconsciously, parading yourself as self righteous or doing only good in public, See Matthew 6:1. ‘Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. You will have no reward from your Father in heaven”
“May God equip us in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus christ Hebrews 13:22
Hope you enjoyed!
Have a wonderful week ahead.
