Personal reflection on the day

Isn’t salvation itself evangelism? I have come to the conclusion that in these days and times the most you can hope for is to save yourself, and in doing so you may take others with you.  “Lead by example”  Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (Matthew 5:48) As you grow in spirit God will open you to new opportunities to spread the good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I feel more and more (aside from personal spiritual disciplines and a true intimacy with God) there is really nothing to do but always be available to the Holy Spirit and move without question to what ever the outcome is, also without question.  We need to remember that this is God’s plan for salvation, not our plan. I don’t have to think for God, if I try, I will have a very small God. Today I was standing in line at the bank with several other people. I realized in that instant how much I had changed simply by the perspective of my minds eye of how I saw them and felt.  I felt I was in the presence of God’s greatest creation (man) and felt hope and strength among strangers. This has never happened to me before……I actually felt that I could speak with anyone of these people, and united together we had great strength to help one another. This was the first time in my life I had ever felt this way around people I have never met, in a place of no expectation. It was not that I felt empowered or confident it was that I felt no fear.  morpheus von eon
