Back to the Cross

13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways,
    so that sinners will turn back to you. Psalm 51:13

We sometimes think we have to have all the answers when we share our faith. But I don’t think God expect that. We just need to show them the way. It’s like a man saying, “I’m just a beggar showing the way to find bread.”

The cross.

It’s a stumbling block to atheists, Muslims, Buddhists, agnostics, and Hindus. The cross is the defining difference, the one that separates those who believe and those who don’t.

The words we use may not be flowery or fluid. Many people you come across already know the way. They’ve heard the truth a thousand times and some of them may even have drifted away, and are waiting for your guiding hand.

We really never know what stage of life people are in in this journey. Nor do we know what kinds of “seeds” others have planted.

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 1 Peter 3:15
