Who’s Doing What?

Posted in Mission at 10:18 pm by Dan Barnett

“Father, hear my prayer. I need the perfect words, words that he will hear and know they’re straight from you. I don’t know what to say. I only know it hurts to see my only friend slowly fade away. So maybe this time I’ll speak the words of life with your fire in my eyes. But, that old familiar fear is tearing at my words. What am I so afraid of? So, here I go again talking about the rain and mulling over things that won’t live past today. And, as I dace around the truth, time is not his friend. This might be my last chance to tell him that you love him. So, here I go again.” How many times to we try to share Christ with someone and not care if God is involved? My “Do You Care?” post talked about why don’t we tell people. But, why don’t we rely on God when we do tell people? I know I am nothing, but it is Christ in me who speaks if I trust him and petition him to give me the words and tools to minister to someone. But, when he does, I can’t back out. I must stay and follow through with what he has sent me to do for this person.
