Fight the Good Fight, Be Obedient
If you are out doing your part in spreading the Word of God and witnessing to people, there may be times when you feel that you are just not making any progress and that no one is listening to you. This can be frustrating! You know you are planting seeds in the hearts of people but it still seems that no one is getting the message. If that is the case, consider this verse:
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord” (1 Corinthians 15:58)
Keep up what you are doing, we are not the ones who save, that is God’s doing, ours is to be obedient and develop our relationship with God. Whatever you do don’t compromise your message and start using the methods of modern evangelism to get “decisions for Christ.” That may make you feel good and feel like you are saving lost souls, but keep in mind that while we may rejoice over “decisions,” Heaven reserves its rejoicing for sinners who repent, and repentance is God-given. Trust in the Lord and in His timing, be obedient and the seeds you plant will grow. In God’s perfect time.
