As I sit in the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston I see people everywhere. Who are they? Where do they live? Where are they going? Are they married? Do they have children…grandchildren? Do they believe in God?
The list of questions is endless. The number of people who live and travel around the world is incredible, really more mind boggling.
The only way to know anything about them is to get involved in their lives. The challenge is taking that step. How can we lead them to the Savior without this connection?
More than likely, we will have to overcome some of our inhibition to take this step.
We will need to overcome fear!
What are we afraid of the most? Rejection? Failure? Saying something wrong?
The application of this thought is true whether talking to a stranger at an airport or a neighbor across the street.
Leading anyone to Christ involves the first step of moving past our fear and connecting to their lives. As challenging as the step may seem, the emotional connection of genuine love will make the difference.
