Hey there..!! I am so happy to share that ‘Voice of Jesus’ has reached 1K views. Truly grateful to God for His favor. Thank you all for being so supportive and active in sharing it with your family and friends..!!!
So, before I begin I wanted to share that this post was not in my planning list I had made while starting the blog. But I always had this concept in mind, just felt the need to write this while praying. Going ahead to the topic of the post..!!
Addressing the one common question –
Because I and my family belonged to a different faith our decision to follow Jesus Christ had left our relatives and friends surprised and panicked too. We were often asked for a reason for this decision. While some were curious to know the reason, others simply asked only to know if we had changed our faith.
What really bothered was the question ‘ Did you get converted ? ‘ basically the way it was framed. I was personally questioned this way a lot every time I had expressed my faith.
All that I want to answer is that, when a person decides to follow Jesus Christ, he/she is Born again by the love of Christ. The old has gone and the new is here (2 Corinthians 5:17 ) . They have decided to follow Christ because they have tasted the love of God and have witnessed the good deeds that Jesus Christ has done in their lives. Above all it is because they have encountered the TRUTH, a truth that has set them free.
Initially when being question it seemed difficult to answer. But very soon every question became an opportunity to share about the truth I had encountered about God. I was happy because I could share the good news that could bring peace, love, joy and happiness to my friends and relatives just like it had brought me once I had believed.
What Jesus does in one’s life can never be concealed. His good work shines like a bright light and nothing can cover it. His goodness reaches to the ends of the world. No one who has learned about the love of Christ can keep this truth to themselves but share it with all.
If you are also being questioned just like I was, I want to encourage you that God is using you as an instrument to spread His Word and speak to your loved ones about the goodness of Christ. Let not the questions bother us but rather be a channel to share the good news. Paul in his letter to Philippians mentions that his situation of chains served as a purpose to advance the gospel, taking that as an opportunity the good news of Christ had reached even from the palace guards to everyone in that palace. (Philippians 1 : 12-14)
Not to miss out, many of those who heard about how Christ had saved my family have approached for prayers to seek Christ’s divine power to work in their lives and have witnessed breakthrough’s. And they have acknowledged that Jesus Christ is indeed our Lord and Savior. It is so exciting to see how God work’s in each of our lives..!
