God: did it for you; you do it for others…
St John 12:11 (KJV) “Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus”.
When some of us are asked why we decided to give our lives to Jesus the first thing we reply is that we want to gain salvation, or words to that effect. But we ought to have at the forefront of our minds as well and know that when we give our lives to Jesus it is a story that needs to be told with the focus being on Jesus.
Some of us have had wild and crazy (boy do I mean crazy) lives prior to coming or being propelled, or being hogtied and pulled to the foot of the cross and we know. At times we choose to remember it a different way, taking off the crazy from the statement “crazy lives” and that I attribute to the good job the Holy Spirit did in cleaning us up.
The things He did for us is a facet of His character, so share it with someone; that testimony might win a lost soul or someone heading to hell; just tell the story and be proud in your future. Look at our man Lazarus, just his presence after that marvelous work which was done was able to make people believe; he won souls with his presence, you never know what you can do.
