Speaking of the Lost

Colossians 4:5 Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity.6 Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.

Even in Alabama, we know there are lost people who need the saving grace of Jesus. You never know who you might be talking to when going about your daily walk, so it is best to be careul what you say to whomever. Earlier in chapter 4 Paul says to 2 "devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart." That devotion for prayer gets us in the right frame of mind in how to talk and live in the midst of believers and non-believers. Paul teaches us to "stay in the flow" in our daily walk and that "flow" is best accomplished for Jesus through a constant prayer relationship.

Peter said it this way in 1 Peter 3:15 Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. We are to be "on point" when living our lives and conscious of witnessing opportunities that arise for us. We are to be witnesses "in season and out of season." Paul wrote this to Timothy in 2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching. Since Paul wrote this to Timothy, his "son in the faith", you can bet it is important, as all of God's Word is to us.

In our daily lives we must always Remember the Lost and be prepared and "prayed up" and ready to go. If you live in that way the chances for realizing and sharing the gospel with the lost will increase dramatically and we will see the lost saved and the saved revived!!
