For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God – Romans 1:20 (NLT)
When we’re talking about apologetics and standing up and sharing your faith, it can be easy to feel like you need to have the most information or the most proof that God is real. That’s not the truth. It’s good to be armed with proof and information. However, as we learned yesterday, it’s God’s word that will change people’s hearts.
So as you stand up, show evidence, and use God’s word, realize this last truth. In everyone’s heart, they know that God is real. Maybe they’ve gotten too busy and as a result, ignored God. Perhaps they’ve hardened their heart to Him due to circumstances or trouble. However, deep down, in their heart of hearts, they know that God is real.
Today’s verse says that God reveals Himself through creation and that people don’t have an excuse for not knowing God. That helps me when it comes to sharing my faith with others. I begin to see that I don’t have to know all the evidence for God. I don’t have to win every argument. Why? Because deep down, people know that God is real.
Today’s Truth: Deep down people know God is real.
So as you share your faith with others, know that the people you’re talking to know deep down that the message you’re sharing with them is the truth. They know the God of the Bible is real because we all desire a fulfilling relationship with Him.
Today as you go out and share your faith with others, believe that God will use you mightily. Know that God’s word is powerful to change people’s hearts, and don’t forget to listen to the Holy Spirit when you don’t know what to say. He will give you the words to say and help you share your faith boldly with others!
Pray: God I thank you for how real you are. I pray for the people around me that don’t know you. Help me find opportunities to share with them how real you are and how much you love them. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
- Who do you feel God is leading you to tell about Jesus today?
- How are you going to tell them about Jesus? If you don’t know, pray and ask God for ideas.
