Sharing It Saturday:

What is better to share than Jesus Christ, John 14:6  "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me".
When we share Christ with others we know we are giving the very best, that no matter what his word says it is the truth, and if we stick to his word, and not try adding our own words, we will give them everything they need for a good and pure life. It was when Eve added her own words to what God had said, she got into trouble, that is another reason for scripture memorization, GOD said it best, Psalms 119:11   "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee".
When we have memorized the word, when we share it with others, it makes it much easier to share it with others, if we do not know God's word, it is very hard to tell others what God has said, none of our memories are great these days, the elder woman any how,  but when I was young I did memorize the word of God, and to this day, some 35 years later, I still remember those verses I learned, I have called upon the lord to help me in many situations to bring to mind his word, and he has never left me out in the cold, he always brings to mind what is needed when I am sharing him with others.
My goal this new year is to learn more about my Jesus, to read more of his holy word, to spread the gospel more, and to be able to go out and tell others what this wonderful Saviour has did for me. You know if you have not memorized the scripture, just share with your family and friends what God has did for you, where he brought you from, and where you are now. I certainly am not what I want to be, but praise God I am not what I used to be, and as long as God gives the breath to me, I will take his word, and share it where ever I may go. That is one promise to God I will not break, and I will not with his help fail to tell them about this precious Jesus that saved my soul so many years ago. I have let him down many times, but you know he has never let me down even once, he has been by my side though thick and thin, he always give me the encouragement I needed, I would fall, he would help me up, dust me off, and give me sweet words to go on.

Let us turn to Jesus, and keep our eyes on him this year, with his help
may we exceed anything we have did in the past for him, I feel the time is getting close, I know it is at least 60 years closer than when I first heard he was coming back for me, so let us who wear the name Christian, make our lord proud, and serve him with all diligence and honor.
God bless each of you reading this post, may give you the desires of your heart, and may you serve him more today than you did yesterday.

Memorizing scriptures are good, but more importantly, we need to live by them. It's easy to tell others what the word says, but much harder to look at our own hearts.

What a worthy subject. Can we ever give the Gospel too many times?

I've heard it said, and believe it's true: The more time we spend with the Lord, the more we look & act as He does. That's what is so compelling to others - to see Him in us, and to feel the love He alone can convey to them.

Hi! Barbara, what a powerful post! I love it! You know, we must tell others, that it what our message should be to everyone we come in contact with. Yes! God's coming is so very close, and I don't want anyone to miss it! I enjoyed the encouragement! Warm Blessings and Hugs!

Barbara said...

Yes Sandra we must live what we teach, or it will be of no avail. When we say Christ, it needs to been seen as well as said.
Mary you may use the star of David, it comes from a wonderful Jewish site we support.
This is a wonderful subject, Jesus, is there any sweeter. None that I have found. I love the interaction we have, it truly blesses my heart.

Hi Barbara,
What a nice reminder in your post to share Jesus more! I am hoping to read the bible more this year myself. It is true that the versus you memorize can and do later on come to mind when you need them most!

God Bless and have a great week,
