Day 10 – Step out in faith, take God at his word and show radical love to those people you encounter every day.
The bible tells us to show love to our neighbors. This doesn’t just apply to the people who live in the house next door, but all the people we encounter in our everyday lives. We spend the majority of our time in school or work and we have a fantastic opportunity to courageously share the word of God with the people we meet there.
At work or school there are some people who are very easy to love, these are often our friends or the people we choose to spend most of our time with. There are some people what seem really difficult to love and even more difficult to tell about our faith. There are also those that everyone seems to struggle to love, but Jesus calls us to love them regardless.
God promises he will give us everything we need in order to step out in faith and tell others about him. He is always with us and will inspire us with the right words to say. We must take the time to pray for those who we work and study with, God will place on our heart’s the right things to do and the right words to say.
When we live a life sold out to God, people will notice that there is something different about us. People will be attracted by our radical love for others and will ask us why we do these things. Sister, you have a unique opportunity in you work or school. God has placed you there for such a time as this. So step out in faith, take God at his word and show radical love to those people you encounter every day. Maybe you need to take the time with that person that no one else will take the time with.
