This post relates to more than hunters, but since hunting season is not too far off, they will certainly relate to the idea of having only one shot. When the opportunity is present, there may only be one shot, so it needs to count.
Metaphorically, the same is true when considering the opportunities God provides in reaching out to others with the gospel, leading them to Christ. If we only had one shot, we can understand the necessity of making it count. What factors need to be considered to make it count?
The priority must be focused on Christ. Scripture is clear; Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” (Jn. 14:6).
The reality is we do not know how many opportunities will be provided, yet the need is the same. People need to know Jesus and we develop those relationships in hopes of sharing a message that will change their lives eternally.
One shot may be all we need, so we need to be ready for it and make it count!
