Hello! Hope you’re well 😊
I had the opportunity to catch up with a friend of mine called Don the other day. He’s active in Church, is into acting and can be seen in some videos telling people about Jesus. He’s an Evangelist. I was so intrigued and encouraged at his openness/honesty when he was sharing with me ‘stories’ of him sharing the gospel to the homeless and gang members – the Gospel is truly for all.
A few years older than me, and very driven for the Gospel, he’s been evangelising for about 10-15 years telling people about Jesus across London. I too (being very passionate about serving God), just bombarded him with questions and dilemmas that I had in my own journey and I thank God for his life and his patience in addressing some of my concerns. As it happens we go baaaaaaaaaaaack. In fact, he actually helped me with my dissertation a few years ago! Don is a fountain of knowledge and was willing to share! Some of the things we spoke about I’m going to share with you today (with his permission ;)
As soon we said goodbye, straight away I just jotted a few key points in my notebook.
Here are some notes:
· When evangelising, trust God even when it doesn’t make sense
· Share the love of Jesus when talking to people
· Be kingdom-minded
· Persevere – the joy of the Lord is your strength
· Be led by the Holy Spirit
He said a lot more but those are some of the things that stood out the most to me.
When I left him I felt encouraged and I felt as if he ‘talked me up’ by encouraging me to keep going and continue serving God in and outside of the Church.I love this advice, “Trust God, even when it doesn’t make sense”.
Until next time.
