I had a quick Facebook chat today with one of my oldest friends. Sometimes she drives me crazy but I love her like a sister. I started thinking about how to best witness to her. I’ve always tried to show her Christ’s love and kindness. But to this day I’m still not sure where she stands with Christ; she changes the subject whenever religion comes up. Maybe that’s the problem, I need to talk less religion and more Christ. I’ll be seeing her this summer for the first time in about 5 years. I could sure use prayers for my conversations with her. I’ve known her for over 30 years, I’d sure love to know her for eternity. My heart aches to think of all my friends who have turned from Christ but especially for Melody.

“Maybe that’s the problem, I need to talk less religion and more Christ.”
I think you’re on the right track with that thought!
“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16 KJV)
“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him.” (John 6:44 ESV)
Pray for God to work in her heart. He’ll do far better than you can, anyhow! Then wait for the words to speak.
Amen to that! Let’s watch and see just what irresistible grace can do!
