Several years ago, my husband ordered a box of paperback Bibles. We give them out to anyone who enters our house that we suspect might need or want a Bible. This one simple act has been the catalyst for many interesting conversations. Some people are thrilled to have a Bible, saying that they’ve never owned a personal copy. Others are happy to take one to pass to a loved one. Still others are encouraged to go home and do the same.
Do I think every person has taken it home and read it cover-to-cover? No, but I do feel confident that when they open that Bible, God will use His Words to draw them to Himself.
I know that when trials and rejections come, they can find comfort in the Bible. It may be riding around in the backseat now, but someday it might be a lifeline.
The Message version says God’s Words will “complete the assignment I gave them.”
He may just have a special message to someone that receives one of those Bibles. Maybe step one of that process is me placing it in their hands.
How are you sharing the Word of God with those in your path? Do you pass along a verse to a friend in need? Or write it out on a notecard for them? Do you ever post God’s Words on your social media accounts? We share everything else – why not share something that really matters?
Lord, Your Words can change someone’s eternal destiny. Please help me boldly share Your Word to those who come into my path. Give me kindness, creativity and faith to believe that Your Words will accomplish Your desired purposes.
