Reaching Out

The Most Important Thing

The most important thing we can do in our lives and to spread the Gospel is to spend time with the Lord. If we don’t spend time with the Lord in His Word and prayer, where our minds become transformed, we will have nothing special to share with others. We will be like a dry well that has no living water to share with others.
Five Keys:
1. Have a special place and time, preferably in the morning, where we spend time with the Lord in His Word each day – our secret place of the Most High (Psalm 91:1). 2. Start with prayer, casting all our burdens upon Him and asking Him to join us in this special time. He is already knocking on our door; we just need to invite Him in (Revelation 3:20). He knows us better than we know ourselves, He loves us more than we can imagine, and He invites us to join Him. 3. Be expectant – this is a divine appointment with the sovereign, living God of the universe, and we are entering into HIS PRESENCE. Don’t you think the sovereign, living God of the universe might have something special to impart to us, to give us comfort, guidance, peace, strength, and courage? 4. Take notes in a journal, writing out the flow of thoughts that come to us. Just write, and you can reflect on your notes later. 5. Share with others. The Lord will reveal insights to us that apply in our lives and the lives of those around us. When we share these with others, we bless them and become rivers of living water (John 7:38).
