Then why keep doing it?
We all see God in our own ways, some see Him as their Healer, some, as their Best Friend, some, as their Financial Advisor, some, as their 911 Operator and some, their Daddy. Some will see Him with a flowing white beard, some will see Him as the Universe, some can't even describe what they might think God is or looks like. We do this because at least while we are here on earth, no one has ever seen God the Father. We don't have a box to put him in. We try though. We make up God's, religions, and ideas to satisfy how we want God to look like. We argue, we fight, we react and we respond to what "we've created" as God.
We must not forget, we have seen God the Son. We know his name is Jesus. We don't have to make this up, because he walked and lived, on this earth. He proved Himself, He proved God. He fulfilled what you and I could have never done and then He hung bleeding on that cross so that He could be the final sacrifice for your sins and made a way for you in heaven. The only thing He asked for, was not your perfection, but your love.
Ok, back to my original question, why when we know that no one listens, do Christians, like myself, or not like myself, for that matter, continue to keep pouring out Christ. Because, one day, Christ's love over took us so deeply and became so clear, so real and so true, that it became impossible for us not to share.
People will share Christ in all different ways, because we see Him in all different ways, what matters most is that you don't deny Jesus. It says in God's word, that the resurrected Jesus is the only way to get to heaven...there is no other way to get there, there's no exception or different view.
But Ang, that still doesn't tell me, why we should keep sharing Christ if no one listens?
The answer to that is in itself a miracle. Remember when John the Baptist said "he came to prepare the way"? He said "Repent! For the Kingdom of God is at hand. Remember John the Baptist, who Jesus said was one of the greatest men to ever live, who did not heal anyone, did not change lives, did nothing but got people ready for Jesus's arrival. Once those people that John baptized, talked to, prepared the way for, met Jesus, they received Him, and all those seeds that John had planted started to grow. Many, John never saw. We know this because when John was in prison and was sad and depressed because he had done the work of God and was looked down on, captured and later beheaded for the work he did for Christ, he asked, "is He (Jesus) really the one?" To which Christ replied "yes, tell John that what he planted has helped me to open blind eyes, heal the sick and set the captives free."
Friends, you may not see what your testimonies do, you may not see what your good deeds uncover, because when you plant a seed it lies dead in the ground, until God tells it to grow. Keep it up my friends, Jesus said that John was one of the greatest men on earth, because he prepared the way to Jesus and Jesus is the same now as He was then.
This means that people may not listen to you, but one day, someday you may never see, their lives will change because of Christ, and those seeds you planted will start to grow.
