In Philippians 1:12-19, Paul describes an amazing way he found joy while sitting in a prison cell…by sharing his faith with others! Admittedly, on the surface, this doesn’t seem logical, but loving people to Jesus is one of the paths to incredible and sustaining joys, even when you are in circumstances that feel like a prison cell!
Two quotes from Bill Hybels that I used in the message are:
“There’s nothing in life that’s as exciting as befriending, loving and leading wayward people toward faith in Christ. Nothing!”
( A prayer) “My life is in your hands, God. Use me to point someone toward you today – I promise to cooperate in anyway I can. If you want me to say a word for you today, I’ll do that. If you want me to keep quiet but demonstrate love and servanthood, by your Spirit’s power I will. I’m fully available for you today, so guide me by your Spirit.”
I trust we will all be challenged to pray for and love people around us who need Jesus!
