Winning Souls

Proverbs 11:30 says, "the fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and whoever captures souls is wise."

Are we doing enough to win people to Christ? Are we doing enough to use our gifts for the Lord? Are we doing enough to put ourselves out there in order to draw men unto Jesus? Did you know that's one of the major reasons we were born? We were made in God's image and God wants people to be more like His image. Some of us really don't realize who we are and the major impact we can have on others. Some of us think we are simply existing for no reason, so there is no belief and faith in what God has for us and what He wants us to do. It's a ho-hum existence of nothingness. We just go through our day doing the same thing over and over again accomplishing nothing. I don't know about you, but I don't want to go through life that anymore. I used to do that. It was unfulfilling and it wasn't helping anybody, not even myself. Do you want to live a life like that? I don't. I want to be helpful to people. I want to draw them towards the light, not darkness. I want to tell them that God will help them in their lives like He's helped me during difficult and challenging times. I want them to be joyous and be able to use their gifts to spread the wealth of what they were born to do. People helping people. Fishermen catching fish. 

That's how we can win souls for Jesus. We can all do our part.

I feel free

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. How are you feeling today? What kind of head space have you been in lately? I ask, because I'm just wondering if anybody feels like me -- free like me. Free as an eagle. Free as can be. That's right, out with doing business the old stale way and in with a fresh new operation. It's a shifting happening in the atmosphere of Sharon's life and I'm moving on to the big and awesome things God has for me. What  do you say for yourself? What are you speaking over your life? What it is for you? 
For me, I am no longer afraid to go out in the deep end. I am no longer afraid to fly higher, I am no longer concerned about what I have or do not have, and I am no longer concerned about what anybody thinks or says. Who the heck cares anymore? I don't. Because God tells me he doesn't give me a spirit of fear or timidity (2 Timothy 1:7), but He gives me a spirit of love, confidence, power, self-control, and joy. And I…

Encourage yourself in God

Do you know that no matter what you may be going through, you can encourage yourself in the Lord? And the Lord will give you the strength and power you need in order to get through? Yes, He will do it. He did it for David when David probably found it difficult to understand how he would endure. But, guess what? God was with him and God blessed him too. There are so many things I love about David. One of those things is that he encouraged himself in the Lord beyond the challenging circumstances he found himself in (1 Samuel 30:6).
When it seemed all was lost, David didn't give up. When everyone turned their backs on him, he stayed with his vision. When his family and community were taken, he went forth with what God told him to do. David never left the Lord in spite of his circumstances. I love that he did the opposite of what some of us would do, he stayed with God, he didn't run away from God. And he didn't try to take matters into his own hands. He ran towards the order…

Jesus gives mercy

"Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road."
Isn't that another great testimony about God's mercy? That story comes from Mark 10:46-52 and it's encouraging for a number of reasons. Namely, that Jesus had mercy on a …
