What Would You Say??
Tonight I had a conversation with a really neat couple. They are in their late 20’s and have a little boy with another on the way. I really enjoyed my time with them. Our conversation was so cool because this couple has only been saved for a short time and they are not married. They really want to do things God’s way now but they didn’t really know what that was. They had questions for me and have really been wanting to learn how to grow deeper in their relationship with the Lord. How wonderful it is to get to help them start on this path to living successful Christian lives.
What they didn’t get from me was judgment or criticism. They got love from me. When I finished the conversation I told them I was proud of them. I was proud of them for growing and learning. I was proud of them for really making an effort and trying to give it their best shot. I am proud of them for raising their hand and making the decision to follow Jesus and I am so very proud of them for following through on that commitment.
We talked tonight about them getting married and what a covenant is. I am sure that is a new word for them but they are so ready to learn and grow. I love people like this; people who just want Jesus and are willing to admit that haven’t got it all together. They just want a Saviour!
What about you? What would you have said? What would you have not said? What do you think most “Christians” would say? What do you think that Jesus is saying right now?
