My little sister and my twin brother both got saved within the last 2 weeks, which is a pretty amazing/spectacular/phenomenal thing.
I think I learned a bit about what it means to lead someone to Christ…Both times (with my sister and then brother), I wasn’t the person who literally LEAD them to Christ. For my sister it happened when she was talking to the youth pastors wife, and for my brother while praying with some guys at a bible study. So basically, it was a team effort sharing Jesus with them.
I realize this is awesome because, I can’t take credit for any of it! It’s ALL because of Jesus. It’s kept my pride about it in check. All I’ve done is rejoiced that they have been saved.
What I’m really trying to get at is, when do we ever REALLY lead someone to Christ? Christ leads people to himself. We don’t even open the doors; he does that as well. He just graciously lets us participate in it. I believe that’s what he did with my siblings. I was obedient, I talked with them, I invited them to church/bible studies, and when they came, he called them.
So I consider this goal done, according to how I now see ‘leading someone to Christ’, and that is for me, merely my obedience in sharing the good news with others, and acknowledging that it was Christ who really did the leading, not me.
