Two or More

Jesus left us with the Great Commission - Go and tell, make disciples, preach the Word.

But as we tell others of the Good News, we need to remember we are not in this alone.

The Holy Spirit is working on hearts, and ultimately it is between each person and the Lord.

No one can make another person be a believer. There is only one way to be Born Again into the new life and that is through Belief.

We can speak the Word. some will plow hard hearts, other water readied soil, and others reap the harvest.

What we can do is be ready with the Word and Pray. Don't be stressed. You can't change a person, that is God's job. We are a team.

In Ephesians, there is a prayer that Paul prayed. If you have someone you're concerned about - pray this prayer and insert their name where appropriate.

EPH 1:16-23

16Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
 17That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
 18The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
 19And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
 20Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
 21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
 22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
 23Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

This season, tell others of the Good News and pray that they see with the eyes of their hearts and are born again.
