Share the Love
My husband and I enjoy spending time in the outdoors. We like to hike and go camping together, and my husband also loves to rock climb. We’ve found we enjoy those activities even more when we can share them with others. We often encounter this situation with college students we meet who are visiting from other countries. These students are only in the USA for a short time while attending school and so they may not get to go camping or rock climbing unless a friend could take them. Sharing our love of the outdoors with them increases our delight in these favorite activities.
This is an excellent picture of what happens when we share our faith. In watching a dear friend become consumed with love and gratitude for Jesus, our own hearts become infused with an extra dose of that same love. We reach out to others with the Gospel for their sake, but isn’t it just like our Lord that he makes the experience satisfying for us as well? He is so good.
I pray that I have many opportunities to share the natural beauty around me with others. But even more, I pray that I can share the beautiful love of Jesus with many souls who need Him.
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. – 2 Corinthians 2:14 (NKJV)
As you share your faith with others, I pray that they may come to know all the blessings Christ has given us. – Philemon 1:6 (Contemporary English Version)
