Ever feel like a broken record?

Read: 2 Corinthians 4:1-6

Many of us have felt the frustration of inviting a friend to church and seeing no response. Loving Jesus changes us in such a way that we want the ones we love to experience the same joy we have. So we share our story. We ask our friends to come on Sunday. We engage in awkward conversations in order to invite someone to church or share God’s truth with them. 

When we feel like a broken record, it’s easy to let the discouragement overwhelm us and just stop asking. But God, in all His wisdom, knew the battle we would face in this world and wants to encourage us.

In 2 Corinthians 4:1, Paul tells us to not lose heart! He reminds us that we are to speak truthfully about God and His Word and live in a way that points to Jesus (2 Corinthians 4:2). While that certainly includes inviting that coworker, brother, or friend, it doesn’t mean we have to save them because that’s God’s job. Unbelievers are actually blinded to the Gospel until God opens their eyes to His truth (2 Corinthians 4:4). 

God’s plan for that coworker, brother, or friend is perfect. We are part of that plan because we are a part of that person’s life. We are to love that person and point them to Jesus, no matter how many times we feel like a broken record. He takes it from there, knowing exactly how to open their eyes to His deep love for them. 

Reflection:

  • Who is one person in your life that is resistant to the Gospel? Spend time praying for God to open their eyes.
  • What is one way you can continue to reach out to that person and point them to Jesus?
