Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.
Have you ever sat and watched a plant grow? That would be a pointless exercise because growth takes time. The same can be said of spiritual things. It can be much slower than we would hope for; and sometimes this is how we might feel when we share the Gospel. Unfortunately, some of the people that we talk with will not accept God’s free gift of eternal life immediately. And when this happens, we can lose heart and feel that the Gospel isn’t reaching them. But can I encourage you today? The Gospel is powerful, and the Holy Spirit works on the hearts of those who hear it. Paul writes in first Corinthians three six, “I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow.” The Holy Spirit can use many instances to call a heart to repentance. So don’t be discouraged — continue to plant the seeds of the Gospel and trust that God is making them grow! For more information, visit share life dot today.
