There When You Need It posted by John Sorensen on Jun 24, 2019
Aren’t you glad that God always gives us what we need? He really does. I’m sure you can recall countless times when you weren’t sure how you would make it through a situation, but just in time, everything turned out okay. You can look back and see God’s hand in your life over and over again.
That’s what’s so great about the Hand Presentation – we always have what we need to share the Gospel! You don’t need an elaborate speech or to be able to quote every verse from Genesis to Revelation – you just need to remember what’s on your hand!
Take your thumb for example, it represents Heaven- you can tell the person you’re witnessing to that Heaven is a free gift that cannot be earned or deserved.
Your pointer finger stands for man. We are fallen sinners who cannot save ourselves. Your third finger reminds us of God and the ring finger reminds us of Jesus. You can know all you need to know about the state of man, sinful and unable to redeem ourselves. You can know that God is holy and just and that Jesus is both God and man and came to save us. But that knowledge does absolutely nothing for us if we don’t have faith, represented by our pinky finger.
So, next time you have the opportunity to share your faith with someone ask the Lord to guide you as you remember how to witness using your hand!
This is our focus this week at Evangelism Explosion through our social media channels and our daily broadcast. Visit ShareLife.Today for more tools to help you effectively share your faith.
May God richly bless you this week as you look for opportunities to lead others to Him.
