Q u e s t i o n s  W e  M a y  H a v e
p a g e  2 8

-I have a friend at work whom I wish would accept Christ. Are there things I could say to guide her in this regard? My pastor says to talk to others about Emmanuel so they can be saved and will go to heaven.

Accepting Christ means...

Acts 16:30-34 "And brought them out and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord.Emmanuel Christ and thou shalt be saved and thy house. And they spake unto him the word of the Lord and to all that were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes and was baptized, he and all his, straightway. And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat.(a table of food).before them and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house."

1Corinthians 9:19-23 "For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ, that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak. I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you."

1Timothy 1:5 "Now the end of the commandment is charity.(word 'charity' is old English for 'love').out of a pure heart and of a good conscience and of faith unfeigned."

Acts 1:3 "To whom also he showed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God."

Creator has a work program leading to a great reward so each of us can be established for eternity. Salvation.(being in the Kingdom of God).is a gift. You are there now if you have Christ's nature of love in you. What you now do determines what position you will have there, just like in a corporation here and now. 

If the Creator is calling her, what you may say.(1Peter 3:15).will make some sense to her. Her mind will be open, alert to and welcome to the things of God and Emmanuel the Christ. If not, Emmanuel said that if they hear, they'll come to Him.(John 6:45), but all in God's good time.

But for those engulfed in this life, with evidence of no interest in spiritual matters, let them be where they are:.Hosea 4:17 "Ephraim is joined to idols. Let him alone." Ecclesiastes 3:11 "...also he has set the world in their heart, so that no man.(at the ego level of living).can find out the work that God makes from the beginning to the end.(and that's why the normal low consciousness of men hijacked Darwin's theory of evolution to perpetuate it as a way to separate man from the truth of the Creator for their own nefarious purposes)." Acts 5:38 "And now I say unto you Refrain from these men and let them alone..." Isaiah 26:10 "Let favour be shown to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness.(no one in this life can permanently change his or her heart on their own). In the land of uprightness he will deal unjustly and will not behold the majesty of the LORD." Matthew 15:14 "Let them alone; they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch."

If the mind is not yet open.(still eagerly after material things and overly having little, if any, concern for her spiritual life here and beyond, still involved in the glory and heartaches of physical living).it will all be foolishness to her:.1Corinthians 2:14; Job 15:20. Remember some people regard religion as a cross between a fire escape and a Christmas tree! 

But give her some truth and see if she handles it positively or negatively. The soul responds to honest words:.Acts 11:14 "Who shall tell you words, whereby you and all your house shall be saved."

The Holy Spirit needs truth to work on.(2Thessalonians 2:14; Acts 16:30-32).and we need wisdom to always be pleasant:.Colossians 4:5.

God is a family and in reaching others with the gospel, we all have a part. Remember it is the example of your life as they get to know you, as well as your words and your presentation, that glorifies God to them. The key here is your love to others.

And don't 'beat things to death' where others come to the point of 'dying to see you leave':.Proverbs 25:17 "Withdraw your foot from your neighbour's house lest he be weary of you and so hate you."

"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go."....Oscar Wilde.

Some things to talk about if you think she would be interested in and accepting of them: Tell her your own story. Ask her if she knows about Emmanuel, if she now feels that Emmanuel is calling her into the family of God? Ask if she wants change in how her life has been? Perhaps she already decided to be a person of love and therefore already has God's nature of love within here?.If.she asks.for study guidance.(1Peter 3:15), perhaps study the word of God with her, maybe first about Emmanuel and a relationship with the Father and about the Holy Spirit, the nature of love of the Great Infinite One
    On, going to heaven.
    On, pushing literature on others and going door to door.
