Taking Faith Based Risks

Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom you believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? – 2 Corinthians 3:5

God gives opportunities for evangelism, we do not make them by creating the perfect seeker sensitive scenario. I need to be vigilant to share the Gospel because opportunities are there. The harvest is plentiful and God is calling me to go out in faith. He is faithful and will provide the increase. If my heart is in tune with his then I will see myself an ambassador called to proclaim his name.
All I have to do is proclaim His name and by His hands and feet. He will do the rest; He must do the rest. On my own I can do nothing. That frees me go to forth boldly knowing that the work and results are in His hands. He provides the grace to do the work. Therefore my working is a resting in him.

Heavenly Father, I am so deficient in being your ambassador. Too often I am more concerned about others think instead of living for an audience of One. Help me to grieve for those I know are going to hell. Enlarge my heart to see the Gospel as so magnificent that I can not help but to tell others. Make my heart like yours so I can tell others about you
