Making a Difference

By Michael Youssef, Ph D.  08/30/22

Only the Holy Spirit can change someone’s heart, but God is calling us to be a part of the process. We can make a difference in the eternal lives of others. We can tell our neighbors how Christ changed our lives. We can share with our friends why we have peace in the middle of difficult times. We can train our children in the ways of the Lord. And we can unite together in prayer for the souls of nonbelievers.

We can pray that we will continue to have the freedom to openly speak Jesus’ name in public. We can pray that we remain free to share the full Gospel message, without being confined to a politically correct version. We can pray that God will continue to use His people to spread His Gospel to the ends of the world.

Spend time in prayer today examining your priorities. Where does the Great Commission fall on that list? Pray daily that God will renew your passion for the souls of nonbelievers. Pray that God prepares the hearts of those around you to receive the Gospel message. Pray for the Holy Spirit to provide you with opportunities to share about Christ. Pray that our country’s freedoms will continue so that we may freely speak the uncompromising Truth of the Gospel.

Prayer: Father, I pray that You would use me to make a difference in the lives of those around me. Renew my passion to see the lost come to know You. Open doors of opportunity for me to talk about You and give me the courage to boldly proclaim Your Truth. Thank You for the freedom we have to speak about You. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and the one who is wise saves lives” (Proverbs 11:30).
