Ever wonder?

Why some people are harder to reach for Jesus then others?

2 Cor 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

I must remember always when witnessing to someone, anyone, to pray, pray, pray before, during and after. Cause I guarantee you if I open my mouth to witness to someone, satan will be right there whispering in their ear that I am lying, crazy, well you know all the lies he tells people about us.

2 Cor 4:5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

See this is something else I must remember. When they reject what I am saying, they aren't rejecting me, they are rejecting Christ. Well unless I am promoting myself, which I pray I never do, I only want to promote Christ. I am but His servant, a vessel presented to Him daily (at least that is my prayer, some days it is harder then others), for His use, to bring Him glory.

Today I am doing some laundry, a few dishes, having lunch with a friend, quilting/knitting probably. Then supper if Lester is off, will be another cooking demo. If he is working late, then it will be just me here and I will figure that out later lol. There is plenty of food here to eat so I won't go hungry.

I pray you have a blessed day in the Lord.

I witness all the time because I know what He has done for me...and it's not but recently that they rejected Him infront of me. I always have to remember what you said...on how they aren't rejecting you as a person but rather's sad...they don't know what they're missing! Have a good weekend!

Love you, Mere

I have been so busy that I am behind on my blog and others' blogs in reading them. I loved what you said about witnessing and how when rejected they are rejecting CHRIST and not you. My own mother rejected me because of my relationship with Christ and that was what I would always tell myself... that she was rejecting CHRIST and not me. It was hard because it was my mom. Great post once again Kim! My next blog... whenever I can get the time is one I will share about what has been going on with my middle son. I have spent the last week crying every single day and so overwhelmed at what God has done. Keep in touch!

Lots of love,
