gospel wednesday

GW

Dear friends,

This week I was honored to share the Gospel with someone new. I met her a couple of days ago and we instantly clicked. We both felt so comfortable opening up with one another and sharing our stories.

She is in her twenties and is beautiful. She has a 5 year old son. She has a tattoo with deep meaning and significance. She is separated from the father of her child. She lives with her parents. She has a successful and enjoyable career. More importantly, she is compassionate, sensitive, and searching for goodness. More importantly, she needs a Jesus – who has every bit of the goodness she’s trying to see.

We had a great time talking about family, friends, life, and eventually…God. I got to share a little bit of my story with her. I told her that my parents didn’t have the intention to raise me to become a Christian, but, by God’s grace, that is what happened.

I told her that I was not looking for God, but I can see now that He always had plans for me. I told her how I was invited to church by a friend out of the blue and it changed my life forever. God found me, saved me, and I simply believed. Then I got to tell her what that meant, to be saved.

Being saved is all about Jesus. Jesus opens our eyes to the rebellion and sin in our lives. The sin in our hearts, minds, past, and present. Jesus lived a perfect life and never sinned, which we can never do. Jesus reveals to us the wages of our sin – death. Jesus died on the cross, in our place, for ALL of our sins. Jesus loves us, forgives us, purifies us, sets us free, and gives us new and eternal life. Jesus rose from the dead and conquered all sin and death forevermore. Jesus will return and set all things new. Jesus is our Lord, protector, and friend.

Romans 6:23 says: “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

In every humans search for goodness and grace, we do not have to look any further than the cross of Christ. That is GOOD news.

I hope that this young woman sees God in a new light through our conversation. I pray that she would believe the Gospel and put all of her hope and trust in Jesus. All glory goes to God above!

Like I said earlier, it was an honor to share the gospel with someone new this week. It was an honor to spend time with her, get to know her heart, and care for her soul. God is always good and I pray her eyes will be opened to that truth.

  1. Hi Sarah, HI! Thank you for your prayers Sarah, they are really helping! I wanted to tell you Sarah, that It was your interest in becoming closer to Jesus that it was my intention to drive you to your Youth Group meetings at Huntington Beach First Christian Church. When you showed interest in soccer, church, and many other positive activities, I usually tried to provide those opportunities for you while you were growing up. I am proud of the woman you have become, my wish for you and always, is to be happy in the present and enjoy the wonderful life God and Jesus has given all of us. I wish you LOVE always, may the power of prayer and Jesus surround your heart. MOM OO

  2. This is such a sweet example of your heart for others to know Jesus! Sounds like you’ve made a new friend, and she’s blessed to have met you. Excited to hopefully hear that she responds to hearing how much she is loved by Jesus! XO
