SEEING JESUS AS HE REALLY IS.

SOUL-LIFT DAILY DEVOTIONAL WITH DR D.M. TIKILI.

DATE: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 09 2020.

TOPIC: SEEING JESUS AS HE REALLY IS.

DEVOTIONAL READING:
Matthew 9.

KEY VERSE: And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. (Matthew 9:10).

BIBLE CHARACTER IN VIEW: MATTHEW.

Christians are capable of cooking up some elaborate evangelism programs. We bring in celebrity speakers and blanket our communities with tracts. We put up billboards and plaster bumper stickers on our cars. We televise our church services and hold up signs at athletic events.

GOD can, and does use such methods to draw people to Himself. But perhaps we’ve overlooked a more natural strategy for reaching out to the spiritually needy – creating non threatening situations in which our non-Christian friends and neighbors can see what CHRIST is really like.

That’s what Matthew the tax collector did. After he decided to follow JESUS, he threw a party. He invited all his wild tax collector buddies, and he made sure JESUS and his disciples showed up. Instead of bringing his friends into a religious setting where they would be uncomfortable, Matthew brought the Good News into their world. Though these tax collector and sinners were turned off by religion, they were attracted to and intrigued by JESUS!

Before you worry about reaching total strangers with the Gospel, think about your non-Christian friends, neighbors, and coworkers. GOD has put these individuals in your life and you in theirs for a reason.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Evangelism Means Creating Natural Opportunities For Your Unbelieving Friends To See Jesus As He Really Is.

Further Study- The Gospels, Acts 1:13.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION:

  1. O LORD, make me a true witness for you in Jesus Name.
  2. Every enemy of my calling, scatter in Jesus Name.
  3. My father, my God, give me grace to be faithful unto the end (pray for at least 5 minutes)
  4. I walk in divine health, wealth and prosperity in Jesus Name. Amen!

Be Lifted!
