This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world.
It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace. Colossians 1:6
When we truly encounter Jesus, we change. We don’t need lengthy training. That’s what I’ve discovered with the people I’m mentoring. I simply introduce them to Jesus, give them a few pointers, and they take off on their own.
I thought it would take a lot more.
You become a candle who lights other people’s candles. They light other people’s candles. Perhaps meddling in the process and trying to control outcomes actually does damage. Then we get into manipulating people to be for us and our program, which results in making them against someone else.
When people are free in Jesus, they’re for everyone, just as Jesus was.
How could Jesus be for everyone? Simple: He’s God and he’s for everyone he created.
What should you and I do? Be for Jesus. Then Jesus in us will be for each other and against no one.
When we’re for Jesus, he will tell the world, “Look at those people…” and our example will influence the entire world.
It’s happening to us right now.
