"Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ . . . (Christ) gave us the ministry of reconciliation . . . not counting their trespasses against them, and he has committed the word of reconciliation” —2 Corinthians 5:18– 20
“Ye are our epistles written in our hearts, known and read of all men” (2 Corinthians 3:2 KJV)
“You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men” (NASB)
Each of us having family members, either close or distant, whom we have a fairly good sense that they do not yet know Him to assure their salvation. And there are also people with whom we work with and friends we've lost touch with who He's laid on our hearts.
Thankfully, this burden we're carrying can be lifted if we'd simply trust everyone to the Lord, while we focus on becoming so drenched in His love, that everyone around us will be affected.
This course will help lighten your burden to the point you will wait in anticipation for the next salvation story He will reveal in your own life! And when He does, please be sure to share your Salvation Story with us.
Acts 16:31 NIV—
“They replied, ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—
you and your household.’”
“They replied, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved,
and your entire household.’"
The word "household" in the original was Greek or oikoß meaning “all the persons forming one family.”
No doubt like all of us, you have someone you love who you know is not saved or, based on how he/she lives his/her life you suspect they've never met the One who would change it forever!
I too had many, so many, that I felt burdened to pray for each, a burden that became simply too much for me. That's when I finally spoke to my HH about it, and the Lord spoke to me, giving me the verses above, that lifted my burden—but what also led to the MANY of Salvation Stories you're about to read.
This course is designed to give you ONGOING faith as you read one a week, or more should He lead you, and also as you pour out your concerns, prayers and also promises for each person(s)—allowing you to LEAVE that person with Him—trusting that He will finish what He, and you, started.
Be sure to first READ the week's testimony but then stop to ponder— letting the Lord speak to you. Ask Him questions, tell Him how you feel, what your concerns are, ask Him what He wants to teach you and take away from reading the testimony.
Then, take the time to pour your heart into the Daily Journal form, leaving the burden of that person(s) salvation with Him—coming away with a sense of knowing it's only a matter of time before you submit a Salvation Story for this person(s) you love.
We recommend doing a chapter each SUNDAY or as often as He leads you! 🙂
