Be Their Chance

I’ve got everything I need right here. How could I ever witness to him?

A message from Jesus

No one has ever been this real with me and talked to me like this before.

Maybe no one showed you how real Jesus is.

Thanks for taking the chance to tell me about Jesus.

Everyone needs My love and salvation, whether they look like it or not, and whether they act like it or not. In the heart of every person, there is an empty space that I have created just for Myself, a need that can only be satisfied by Me and My love. It can be difficult to approach people with a witness if you’re looking at their appearance. Maybe you feel that they are too cool, straitlaced, fashionable, attractive, or self-assured for your witness. That’s why to have guts to witness you should see them as I see them—souls in need of a savior. Don’t look at a person’s appearance; look at their heart (1 Samuel 16:7). It helps to ask yourself if you can risk passing up the chance to offer someone eternal life simply because their appearance is intimidating. Witnessing can be scary, but a verse that may help you is 2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV): “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.” No matter how little you might think you have in comparison to the other person, or how much of a “nobody” you feel you are, if you have salvation, you have everything. So be someone’s chance. Take the risk. You’ll be happy that you did. Not only that, but it will give you more selfconfidence, courage, and determination to “preach my Good News to all creation” (Mark 16:15 AMP).

I am in you—in your heart to give you the love you need, in your mind to give you the words you need, in your eyes to give you the friendliness and radiance you need, in your feet to give you the power you need to walk up to that person and start talking.—Jesus Originally published November 2007; adapted.
