Devotional: Seizing The Opportunity

Christian Devotion about making the most of every opportunity



"...Behave yourselves wisely [living prudently and with discretion] in your relations with those of the outside world (the non- Christians), making the very most of the time and seizing (buying up) the opportunity..." - Colossians 4:5 (AMPC)

We are Christ's representatives down here. That is an awesome responsibility - and maybe sometimes a little overwhelming when we see ourselves in His light, knowing we so often fall short. We need to be ever aware that the non-Christian world is watching. We need to be living wisely and uprightly, so they can see a difference in our lives.

How often have we missed opportunities to share Christ with others? I know of many times I have failed to share Christ when there was a perfect opportunity. For some of us sharing Christ with others seems to be hard, while others find it a lot easier. Let us challenge ourselves to look for opportunities every day to share something of Christ - maybe your testimony, or a recent blessing or answer to prayer. When we think of it, there are quite a few things we can share, like our personal testimony of God's goodness. You don't have to share the 'Salvation Message' every time you open your mouth, but just the little, everyday things as you converse with people.

Let us seize every opportunity
To share Christ, and our hope of eternity.
