Do those who work alongside know you are My child? Do they know the forgiveness extended? Do they know they neither are worthy, but [are] also called? Do not let the years pass and the tree be barren of fruit. You have been redeemed, that My grace and calling would come through you. One flame lights another; do not hide under the bushel what is meant for others. Do not fear their response, for a gentle word from you will not offend. My Spirit calls you forward, and I Am with you. Allow them to know your healing, that they too would desire, freedom offered for the oppressed, given a key from My hand through you. Do not fear the judgment of man, as it is My own only that must be feared. Reach, that they might know you, and My Name, through you.
1 Peter 3:15 (NIV) – But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.
Romans 12:12 (ESV) –Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
Bottom Line: We may work for years right next to a great fellow-worker, but they really have never heard our story, the story of a great rescue – the sacrifice of Christ transforming us from who we once were. Your testimony can make all the difference. Your presence next to them is no coincidence. Be brave and plant the seed of your testimony in their heart. Pray for the right timing, and be ready when it comes about. Maybe one day many years from now, it will be your story that has a part in making their life story one of celebration. Speak, and let His Word work through you.
