“Philip went to look for Nathanael and told him, “We have found the very person Moses and the prophets wrote about! His name is Jesus, the son of Joseph from Nazareth.””
John 1:45 NLT. http://bible.com/116/jhn.1.45.nlt
Sometimes I just get disappointed in myself. I don't take advantage of opportunities to share Jesus. I also think my actions don't always point people to him. Philip went right to his friend and proclaimed Jesus. I want to be like Philip.
This weekend I had the honor of praying for a young biker and his family. The biker was in a motorcycle accident and had severe brain trauma. The family chose to turn his life over to God as they disconnected life support. Such a tough decision to make about an 18 year old family member. It's in moments like these when people are vulnerable, open to the power of God, that I love to share. But, do I truly know my impact. No way! I really am honored to be there to support the family. These times could occur more. Do I have to wait for tragedy to be forced into action? Why do I not feel as comfortable witnessing outside of tragedy. Lord help me to recognize the opportunities. Help me to step forward at your will. Fill me with your strength to share you at the right moment. I love you Lord. Forgive me for my weakness in serving you.
