Someone in the office makes a joke about people who believe in Jesus. Do you laugh or are you quiet? When do you declare that you are a believer? This message points out that the problem isn't that we are afraid to share who we are as much as the fact that we don't have a good testimony that allows us to boldly stand up. A good testimony keeps us from being ashamed.

There are billions of people who have never heard the gospel story. Believers are around them every day. Why aren't these believers concerned about those who have never heard. Are they bored with stories of people coming to know the Lord? Or could it be more fundamental? Do they see them? Why not?

We live in a world that accepts what their peers say. Thus, we only challenge the things that are in the minority opinion. We sometimes accept things that our friends say without checking out what the Bible says. There are many things that God does and many things that He will not do. In fact, some of those things He cannot do. This has nothing to do with His power. It has to do with who God is. For example, God is all knowing and cannot make a decision without knowing the results. What does that mean when we speak of being chosen? That's what this message deals with.

Those who know Christ also know it is the best decision of their lives. It makes no sense to those who refuse to accept Him as Lord and Savior. Why is that? Is it because they lack education or the proper environment? No, they resist the Holy Spirit. There are strong forces keeping people from this eternal decision. This is the topic of this message.

Most Christians never share their faith because they are afraid. That fear does not come from God. Maybe that's why evangelism programs have been followed do "religiously." So often, they focus on the scriptures that have been memorized without recognizing the person who is listening to them. What if we didn't have a program but simply loved people into the kingdom of God? What if we were less mechanical and more personal? What if our hearts were broken each time someone rejected the gospel? What if our hearts were truly elated when someone accepting Christ? That's where this next series of messages is going. Don't just listen to this one. Let's win people to Christ by loving them into the kingdom.

How often do we need to hear that God loves us? Every day. How do we know He loves us? Paul was convinced that nothing could separate us from the love of God. How was he convinced? The same way you are. This is the message on this podcast.
