The Scripture for today, December 30 (12/30), is Matthew 12:30, as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
What? You can’t just drift along just showing up at church services and that is all? You must gather people to him? Are you sure? Oh, I don’ know enough about the Bible. Besides, I’m too busy.
Deep down inside, do you fear that, if you bring Jesus into a conversation, people will do you great harm and become dangerous enemies? Although in some countries of the world this is true, in most it is not. Those of you in free countries, do you quake at the thought of bringing up Jesus to your friends, and even to strangers? What will they do to you? Kick you? Slug you? Poison your food? What is it you fear?
Those are Satan’s lies. He has gotten into your head and you are believing him. Most people will appreciate a little discussion about Jesus because most people do not attend worship anywhere and know little about the Bible.
Instead of listening to Satan, perhaps you should quake that some of your friends are headed to hell. Satan puts fear in your heart. Do not give in to Satan. “Perfect love casts out fear” (1st John 4:18). Do as Jesus did: “Seek and save the lost” (Luke 9:10).
Help your friends who do not know they need help. Overcome your fear for yourself and give in to the fear for their souls. It can be done. Stop watching so much television or playing endless games. Give it a try. If it were your soul, would you want someone to at least try to save you? Rise up! Defy Satan! For your new year’s resolution, dare to be a gatherer of souls.
EASY BIBLE WORKBOOKS: ACTS OF THE APOSTLES. All workbooks are surveys of a book. Here is a simple fill-in-the blank workbook for Acts. It gives the exact verse so there’s no hunting. Caution: It is in the NIV version. It was set up for weekly group studies where the student does one part of a lesson each day so s/he is ready when the group gets together. However, it can be used in weekly classes or by homeschoolers, or just lone in private study. (Note: I am going through another edit in January.)
