Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.
Gerd Muller? Does it ring a bell? With national record of 68 goals in 62 international appearances, this German footballer was aptly nicknamed the ‘Bomber’. He is one of the very few players to score more goals than the games he has played.
What made him so effective in goal mouth action? His uncanny ability to seize even a small opportunity and convert it into a goal.
In the process of sharing the Good News about God’s saving grace, ‘opportunism’ is vital. One has to be constantly on the lookout for an opportunity and when it arises, it needs to be grabbed... with both hands!
Remember, if we do not evangelize, we fossilize!
Dear Lord, please enable and equip us to be a good servant, who capitalize on every opportunity to share the Good News of You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
