Be Ready to Share At All Times
… preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. (2 Timothy 4:2)
I know a member of our church named Shelley whose father used to be a leader on the Education Commission in Washington, DC. They are good friends with President Bush, the elder, so Shelley, her husband Frank, and their two twin boys were invited to the White House to spend time with the President of the United States. When they walked in, they began shaking hands with the President.
As President Bush leaned down to talk to the twins, one of those boys said, “Mr. President, do you know Jesus?” And the President of the United States got down on his knees, put those little boys in his arms, and said, “Yes, I know Jesus. In fact, I bet I know a song that you know.” And those two little 3-year-old boys and the President of the United States sang together in the White House, “Jesus loves me; this I know, for the Bible tells me so.”
When I heard that, I wondered if I had been greeting the President, would I have asked him, “Mr. President, do you know Jesus?” You see, it’s always the right place to lovingly, tenderly share the Lord Jesus Christ. Yes, your methods may vary, but there’s never a bad time to express to others that the Lord loves them.
You may never meet the President of the United States. But you have friends, neighbors, and family who need to know God loves them. So be ready at any time to share the message of hope with them!
It's never a bad time to share the gospel. So be ready at all times to tell others about God's love for them!
