Don’t Waste Your Summer: Speak Truth

26 05 2008

I just got back from New York City on a missions trip a couple days ago, and I learned a lot of stuff through our evangelism outreaches. But the greatest lesson I learned was the power of God’s Word. We all know the verse that says, For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart-Heb. 4:12″ (ESV).

This verse came alive to me last week as I saw people who at first rejected the Word of God, but at the end of our conversation, completely had a heart change and believed what they had read. There were times that I would make the person read the passage up to five times before the person realized the implication of the verse and believed it.

I said nothing to the people I talked to except “read it again.” I didn’t have to try to convince them, God’s Word can stand on its own. It worked every time without fail when the people were willing to sincerely look at the passage again.

My challenge to you this summer is to attempt to speak truth to everyone you meet. I have heard so many testimonies of people who have started their search for Christ because of a simple act of truth being spoken. There was a lady who was a clerk at a store, and a random customer came in and simply said “God bless” as he left, and that started the ladies search for Christ and eventually led to her salvation.

I met a man last week who was a member of the church I was at who was saved because people like our team were on the streets and handed him a tract. He read it, got saved, and came to the church.

What I’m saying here is that God’s Word is so powerful. We don’t need to add our own thoughts or lengthy explanation of a passage. Simply speaking truth is enough, and that is all God needs to work His power in the life of another person.

I exhort you to be faithful this summer, and talk to people about your Savior. Don’t be afraid about not knowing enough. Just know simple truths and where it can be found in the Bible; you’re not out there to argue a case for God–He can do that Himself. Carry tracts with you, pass them out to everyone, and talk to people when you have the opportunity.
