So very difficult! This proclaiming the gospel! Especially on home turf!
Living the life, obedient to the commandments of love. Try telling those who do not want to hear, those whose very being cries out with 'don't shove
it down my throat!' rebuttal, is completely counter productive! So, in Truth, seek other ways to sow the seeds of life.
Amongst the congregation I mentioned in my previous post, were some elderly women, many widowed, many who had personal health issues, some who had
husbands and families. I am finding it difficult to express my thoughts on just how much some, who may appear to offer nothing, to not be living the
life, contribute! The people who run the tea stalls for example, raising funds for those in the field. What a powerful testimony! Those who promote
and nurture peace in their own communities and the power of prayer, to combat evil, lessen the harm.
I think that if it were not for prayer, the world would have been engulfed in endarkenment long ago.
Proclaiming the central theme of the gospels, that Jesus is the only way to eternal life, nobody that I have ever mentioned this to has taken the news
well. I soon learned I had to find more subtle ways to have the conversation, that the conversation itself rarely works in itself anyway, that
actions, such as yours that you have told us about in this Thread, these are the ways the Lord uses to open the doors to understanding.
There is just so much more to evangelism and prophecy than mere verbal proclaimation, some of it quite joyful!
Thanks be to the Lord and thank you for this Thread I Want to Believe.
