Making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
Ephesians 5: 16
When I am with those who are weak, I share their weakness, for I want to bring the weak to Christ. Yes, I try to find common ground with everyone, doing everything I can to save some.
1 Corinthians 9:22
As the world celebrates the Christmas season this year, please use it as an opportunity to witness about the Christ of Christmas.
Don’t allow the funfair that accompanies the season to deny you of the opportunity to tell someone about the unique love of God that made God give His only Son to redeem humankind.
It’s like being a player either in soccer or football, and you are giving the opportunity to take a penalty shot. Please convert it to a good goal for Christ.
Don’t be involved in the theological confusion as to whether the word Christmas is in the Bible or not. Neither engage yourself with the argument of which day was HE born?
“For the love of Christ controls and urges and impels us, because we are of the opinion and conviction that [if] One died for all, then all died; And He died for all, so that all those who live might live no longer to and for themselves, but to and for Him Who died and was raised again for their sake.” 2 Corinthians 5:14-15
Somehow the world has come to acknowledge the fact that a Savior was born to redeem humanity so tell them about the real redemption story.
Apostle Paul says in the above scriptures that he would use every opportunity to advance the gospel and be all things to all men to win them to Christ.
Use the opportunity this season is presenting you to talk about the real Christ who came as the only Savior of the world.
Find common ground to be a real witness of Christ in this season.
