Just put a roast in the slow cooker. Mmmm…smells good already–perfect for a chilly day. As I generously added garlic salt and seasoned salt, I was reminded of a verse I read yesterday in my Bible study homework that I am taking to heart and praying for tonight.
“Let your conversation always be full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” Colossians 4:6
We had Jehovah’s Witnesses, Shonda and Ashtyn, visit us last Thursday. They gave us literature and asked to come back in a week. Gabe graciously said sure. We have verses ready that prove Jesus is God, not Michael the archangel. Verses that tell us that hell is a real place. Verses that say we will go to heaven when we die if we have accepted Christ’s sacrifice for our sins.
I am not really looking forward to this. I have “better” things to do on a Thursday evening. Better things than lovingly sharing the truth with two young women who are lost. Worse than lost. Being brainwashed by people who tell them that Christianity is deception. That they can only read the Bible as it is interpreted by the “mother” (the JW organization) I cannot believe the lies these poor people believe.
Could you please take a moment to pray for my attitude? Pray that I will feel an incredible burden of love for Shonda and Ashton, instead of feeling that their visit will be a burden to me. Pray that my conversation will be full of grace, seasoned with salt, and that I will know how to answer them. Pray that these two gals might see the light of God’s truth, that the Holy Spirit will speak through Gabe and me and convict them.
