Remember When

Think back to the moment Jesus saved you. You may have been sitting in church with your heart pounding, knowing you should surrender, until you finally stood to your feet. Or maybe you were alone, just reading your Bible and Jesus grabbed your heart. No matter how He did it, you know you shared an unbelievable moment with your Savior. A moment when you realized everything you had ever done is forgiven. An instant where you knew Jesus died for your freedom and secured eternity. Hopefully, the moment of your salvation brings excitement, thankfulness, humility and eagerness to tell others.

In Acts 9:20-31, Saul had just had his moment with Jesus. Saul realized everything he had done against Jesus was forgiven by Jesus. He knew Jesus was the Messiah and “immediately began preaching about Jesus in the synagogues” (Acts 9:20). Saul was full of excitement and eagerness to tell everyone he encountered about Jesus even when people were trying to kill him because of it.

Remember your initial moments with Jesus, and use that memory to reignite that burning spark of eagerness to tell others. Every opportunity we have to share our salvation story is an opportunity to remember our salvation story. Remind yourself daily that Jesus saved you. Accept your calling to tell others all about it.

Reflect:

  • Do you have a memory of when you met Jesus? If not, what is stopping you from accepting His love?
  • If you are a Christian, do you have the same passion for evangelism (telling others about Jesus) as you did when you first met Him?
