Daily Devotional: Reaching Out to Others (8/4/12)

Daily Devotional: Reaching Out to Others

Prayer Starter: Lord, I want to readjust my priorities and reach out to others the way You want me to. Help me as I step out with determination to make a difference for You.

Isaiah 58:10 And if you give yourself to the hungry And satisfy the desire of the afflicted, Then your light will rise in darkness And your gloom will become like midday.


Speaking to others about God has become difficult in today's society. Christians have been so demeaned, lambasted and lied about by the media that we keep to ourselves. Make a choice to tell others about God.

It has been with God's help that I got mine in order.  I have learned to listen to Him more.

Thank you for your post!


“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

Keep on shining the Light as the days get darker and darker the Light shines all the brighter!

One great way to do this is just open your mouth to a stranger and ask in your heart for the Lord to fill your mouth with the words. You'll be surprised by what comes out. Many times not a word of the Gospel comes out but what Jesus thinks of that person. It will always leave them with a feeling of joy and elation. A simple, "Wow, you have a great smile." is all it takes to share Jesus with someone. "You sure have a lot of thankfullness in your heart today." "Man you are great at your job." This last one seems to come out a lot to people in menial jobs that appear worn out. And my favorite one which is true about everybody... "Your future is going to be much brighter than your past, that's for sure." It's called prophecy and the apostle Paul said he wished we would all do it.
