Care and Share

"And he stayed two full years in his own rented quarters and was welcoming all who came to him, preaching the kingdom of God and teaching concerning the Lord Jesus Christ with all openness, unhindered."
Acts 28:30-31

A leading newspaper executive was visited by a local pastor. The man of God came right to the point as they shook hands. "My friend," he said, "I'm here to ask you to become a Christian." The editor walked over to a window and for several minutes stood looking down into the street. The minister thought he had offended him. Finally the man turned, his face wet with tears. Taking his visitor's hand again, he said, "Thank you for your concern. Since I was a young boy at my mother's knee, not a single relative or business associate has ever taken an interest in my soul. I thought no one cared!"

Paul the Apostle cared about all who came to him. He shared the gospel of Christ boldly. Some received it and some didn't, but Paul never worried about the results of his witness. He left that to the Holy Spirit. Opportunities arise all the time for us to share the good news of salvation with the lost. We don't need to be concerned with how they react to our testimony. We only need to care enough to share what we know and leave the outcome to God.
