Start With This

The first thing to do when sharing Jesus with others

O that one might plead for a man with God, as a man pleadeth for his neighbour! - Job 16:21

Job's friends had a lot to say.  Some of their comments were on point, and some were not. Either way, they missed the point. What mattered was not what they understood about God, nor what they understood about Job. What mattered most was what God had to say; how God viewed Job's plight.  They had a lot to say, but what they needed to do most was pray.

At some point, we - collectively - will realize that deep prayer is needed for deep problems.

The problems people face and the ultimate problem of sin need God's intervention. So, start with prayer. Pray for people who you aim to share Jesus with. Pray before speaking. Pray while speaking. Pray after you have spoken.

Pick 5 persons in your world who do not know Jesus and ask The Holy Ghost to inform your prayers for them.  Write down what you hear. Pick a time of day to pray for them. Put that on your calendar as a "Meeting with God."  Then, keep your appointment.

And may God help you to experience the benefit of understanding this, as you see it in your own life: Job wanted someone to plead for him, but in the end it was his pleading for others that turned his life around.

And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before. - Job 42:10

Plead with God for those who don't know Him.
