It is not universal
The most important job isto be a disciple
It is not everyone
If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. John 15:20
Not everybody is going to reject you. Indeed because of your faith you may lead others to Jesus and that will be a jewel in your Heavenly crown.
Think of someone who’s heart is empty, they are tired of the bar scene and one night stands and is looking for something fulfilling in their life, or an addict that wants to get out of their hell and see’s how you have been freed or someone that is tired of the empty materialistic world. Your new life may be the candle on the hill that directs others to Jesus.
Man may dismiss compassion from his heart, but God never will.
Just make sure that you are always point to Jesus and not you. Share with them that it was not you who made the changes but the grace of Jesus that brought about these changes. Share with them the peace and joy in your life now.
The serene beauty of a holy life is the most powerful influence in the world next to the power of God.
Take it slow though, many people have had bad experiences from hypocritical Bible thumpers and are reluctant to come forward or make a sudden commitment. For some it may happen suddenly while for others it may take a year or more.
Hence we must support one another, console one another, mutually help, counsel, and advise.
Thomas à Kempis
Be patient and be in constant prayer for them and for Jesus to show you the proper way to guide them to Him. Trust Jesus, He knows them much better than you do so He know the best way to guide them to Him.
Prayer: Jesus Rabboni (Jesus our teacher) please teach me to open my eyes to those who are teachable. Bless me with the wisdom, strength, patience and endurance to lovingly guide them to You. I ask in your wise name. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
