I hear what you say. I have family too. I love them very much.

We are followers of Jesus. Everyone expresses it how they decide. Let us remember the rich young ruler story, to keep us oriented rightly. That's Ll I'm saying. I didn't choose this, it chose me.

I do it because no one asked me if I'd like to go to church with them. Not even JW's, lol. I was bad, but I needed help.


To those who faithfully are witnesses to the saving grace of God and lead souls to Jesus. This crown has also been named the soul winner's crown. Itindicates here that God will be giving a crown to those who have witnessed toothers and leading people to Christ.Telling others about the grace of God, telling others about Jesus, is the greatest thing that you can do for someone while here on this earth. When you help someone to be led to the Lord, you have just been used as a vessel of God. It says in the Bible,"Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holy and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:"1 Thessalonians 2:10 God will judge you by your willingness and desire to be used by Him to witness to others, not necessarily on how many actually get saved; because we are to water and He gives the increase.Christians can be used by God to try to lead others to the Lord. God can fit opportunities for you in your life to witness and work for Him if you allow Him to. Some could be your unsaved friends, family members or co-workers, etc. The Bible says it good here,"For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of ourLord Jesus Christat his coming?"1 Thessalonians 2:19

Pray to the Lord of the Harvest.

Good day Mishael

You are right. We should be living for Jesus every day. We are to be ready for His return as we continue to go about His business. For some, it is missionary work, for others volunteering to serve others in a church fellowship, for others, it is continuing to work a solid work week to provide for their families, and for still others, it is being retired and spending time with family and enjoying grandkids. Family life is really important. All family relationships are important: parents, children, siblings,grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins.

All of these aspects of family are worth having and fostering in healthy, godly ways. So many children miss out on positive family relations.

As believers, these relationships are very valuable, as we should rely on me another in day to day life and in times of trouble. When more trying times come upon us, we will seek to assist our family first, as I think is how the Bible instructs us. Evangelism and love for others starts with family.

I think the point of being wise to the times and readiness is important, but I also believe we are to live out our lives in the situation God has placed us in until we have a clear directive from the Spirit to do otherwise. Others may disagree, but I think this way because of how the family has suffered so much damage over the past few generations, we just an't ignore the needs of our children and grandchildren. They are our mission field while they are young.
