We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded with all types of messages. Through social media, the internet, television, radio, and newspaper we are continuously told what is happening in the world: the good, the bad, the ugly, and what we should do about those things. Christians are called to add their peculiar message into the fray of communication saturation. But, our message is very simple: Jesus. “Speaking Jesus” doesn’t always mean that our message will be “positive and encouraging.” Sometimes it’s a message of advice. Sometimes it’s a call to repentance. Sometimes it’s a motivation of re-direction. But speaking Jesus is what we are called to do. Therefore:
Recognize your opportunities to speak Jesus into someone’s life
In Acts 3, Peter and John make their way up to the temple to pray. On their way they are accosted by a lame beggar looking for handouts. Peter and John recognized their opportunity to speak Jesus into this man’s life and they obeyed the Spirit’s leading.
This man was not looking for Jesus. He had a perceived need. However, his real need was Jesus. And Peter spoke a healing word into his life. Through the Spirit’s working and the man’s faith, not only was he made to walk but he became a believer in Jesus Christ.
If you are going to exalt Jesus you need to recognize your divine opportunities to speak Him into people’s lives. Be watchful and obedient for who He will place in your life this week.
