Thus says the Lord of hosts: In those days ten men from every language of nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you. Zechariah 8:23 NKJV
God said He would bless the great city. He will bless the nation of Israel. He will cause Israel to be a blessing to other nations and people.
My wife has a sister. She is married. She has children. They do not know the Lord. My wife traveled to the city where her sister lives to attend a woman’s conference. She asked her sister to stop by for a visit.
My wife’s sister thought it was funny that so many Christian women were gathered together in one place. She is a mocker. She thinks Christians are odd. She is uncomfortable around us even though we do not preach to her or judge her.
My wife’s sister calls when her family is in crisis. She calls my wife because she has a relationship with Jesus. She calls because my wife prays. She knows God hears my wife when she prays. She calls my wife because of her special status as God’s beloved!
People who reject Jesus often turn to the Lord in times of trail and hardship.
We must be available when people reach out to us. We must reach out and love them as though Jesus is reaching out to them and loving them through us. We must pray for them. We must tell them God loves them. We must tell them about Jesus!
Jesus is blessed when unbelievers call out to Him. They can have the same intimate relationship with Jesus we have.
People will turn to you during times of distress and hardship if you are a reflection of God’s love and character!
Tell people what Jesus has done for you in the past. Tell them what Jesus will do for you in the future. Tell them what Jesus is doing for you today. Jesus wants us to share with other people the joys and blessings of living in intimate relationship with Him!
Jesus is with us. He is an ever present help in times of need. He is leading and guiding us. He loves us through the trials and hardships we must endure.
If you surrender your hearts and life to Jesus He will use you to bless other people!
