Last night in a chat a few were left in a room and someone came into the room asking questions. I knew of this person who for years comes into the room asking questions and I am reasonably sure that he is a Buddhist. Those left in the room pointed him to Jesus. My answers were clear and true. Then a person in the room said to me "take a coffee break bud. He wanted to be the one to give the answers to this man. Well, I do not like being called "Bud". But that is no big thing. The man who wanted to witness alone was right. If you are in a room witnessing, it is best if it is one on one. The one who cares the most about the person should witness, if he is led by the spirit and knows the word of God. In my heart I knew this man was not going to be a Christian, because he has done the same thing for years. I left the man to witness one on one because I thought it was the right thing to do. I could have played the usual game of debating and showing who has the best answers. A cock fight does not win anything. Let everything be done in truth and in order. We do what is right following the spirit. Even in warfare, we are at peace with God.
Php 2:3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Php 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
Php 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Rom 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
1Co 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1Co 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
Php 1:9 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;
Php 1:10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;
I am needing to be in the things of God who has all wisdom and understanding and loves us deeper than we can understand. Do what is right, no matter what others say or do not say. We are to be led by the spirit and he is not pushy or divisive.
