Devotional by Raul Ries
And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.
I have met so many people, everywhere I go. At the gym, there is a woman who has been coming for the last five years. She works out every single day, seven days a week, and I have been praying for her. Her daughter came to CCGS, and she got saved.
She came up to me and said, “Raul, I want to tell you something. I am searching. I work out every day. I go to work, but I have no peace in my life. I see my daughter, and she has peace in her life now. I am going to come to your church to see.”
Going down to the beach, we have many guys come up to us, and we do not preach. We preach by our lives. They see how we fellowship with one another. We are always joyous; we are not bummed out.
They come up to our cars and ask us questions all the time, because they see something different. They are all educated people, but they are empty.
This is what God has been doing. This is what God does. We do not have to be afraid. We have to be powerful witnesses of Jesus Christ. We have to be bold in proclaiming the Gospel. We have to live it. We have to really live it out.
When people ask you, do not be shy. Tell them the truth. “You are going to heaven or you are going to hell.” Make them make a choice.
It is the Word of God, the Word of God that fills people’s lives and gives them peace—the peace of God.
Evangelism is truth demanding a verdict.
