Being an Effective Witness for the LORD

Be an effective witness not a turn-off.

Think of lost souls as a beautiful garden or lawn where weeds have overgrown and taken over, trying to destroy God's creation; the beauty in nature. There are two approaches to use to witness to them and I'll use garden and lawn products as an example.

Think of lost souls as a beautiful garden or lawn where weeds have overgrown and taken over, trying to destroy God's creation; the beauty in nature. There are two approaches to use to witness to them and I'll use garden and lawn products as an example.

Weed-B-Gon is guaranteed not to harm grass if used as directed. We have the Holy Bible to use as directed when witnessing to others. It will in no way cause harm. On the contrary, it will save lives!

In contrast, Roundup, another product, kills everything it comes in contact with, weeds, grass and flowers. If you don't want it to grow, use Roundup. It is not "weed-selective" as Weed-B-Gon. It is great to use to remove weeds creeping up in the driveway between the concrete slabs. It's useful to edge the sides of a driveway, in rock beds and along fence lines, as well. I've used both products.

When witnessing to someone, we cannot be as aggressive as Roundup to win souls. I'm reminded of Proverbs 15:1 which says, "A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger." Weed-B-Gon is the soft answer and Roundup would be the harsh words. A gentle tongue about the word of life can turn a stoney heart. There is power in the word of God; a power to draw men to Him if He is lifted properly. We must represent God and while doing so, others will see God is love. His love, light and power will radiate from and through us.

Use the word of God as "Roundup" for Satan and his dark evil forces. Carefully apply the word of Truth to the weeds among a garden of beauty. More than one application may be required. It's safe to do so, again and again until the weeds are gone and another soul has received Jesus Christ as LORD and Savior.

As you witness to others and just in daily living, it is my prayer "the LORD lift up His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace (Numbers 6:26) and a burden for lost souls.
