Taken from The Way of the Master Minute

Birds of a Feather


Most people keep to themselves. They are birds of a feather and they prefer to keep it that way. But not the Christian. We know that we must speak to strangers. Fortunately, we have the example of the way of the Master. If you study John chapter four, you will see that Jesus took the initiative by speaking first to the woman at the well. He didn’t wait for her to ask why He had peace in His eyes, or to mention the things of God. He had an agenda to share the Gospel with her, so He initiated the conversation. We have a clear agenda. We want the world to hear the Gospel and to be saved. They are not going to come to us, so we have to go to them. So, break free from the flock of shy birds and fly with the message of everlasting life. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
