It seems to me that I keep bringing this up. Maybe it’s because I need to hear it. But there are certain things that are God’s job and NOT yours or mine.
Specifically for this discussion, only God can change a heart and mind. Only God can save a soul and revive a spirit. While God has set things for Christians to do, sometimes we try to do more than what we should.
But our job is only to witness. It is to share God’s Word. It is to speak the truth in love, regardless of another’s response. You can’t save anyone. Only God does the saving.
God is the one who prompts us and strengthens us, since witnessing is a Holy Spirit led activity. God is the one who prepares hearts for a gospel encounter in the first place.
Saving people is God’s job, not yours.
