Taken from The Way of the Master Minute

Taking the Initiative

ListenStudy how Jesus spoke to the woman at the well. He went out of His way to speak to her. He took the initiative. He didn’t wait for her to bring up the things of God. We need to do the same. The world won’t come to us and ask us about God. They love the darkness and hate the light_ “neither will they come to the light, lest their deeds are exposed.” So, determine to do what Jesus did. Go into all the world. Perhaps use a Gospel tract to bring up the subject. Hand it to someone and ask, “Did you get one of these?” Let curiosity do its work, and when they ask “What is it?” say, “It’s a Gospel tract. Have you had a Christian background? What do you think happens after someone dies?” Do it. Today. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
