- It is God, through the ministry of the Holy Spirit that changes, opens minds to the gospel ultimately drawing them to Him – not our job.
- We are to live in a manner that attracts people to the gospel, praying for those around us, while speaking the truth of the gospel to them – our job.
- We do not know on whom the Holy Spirit is working but we know that He is working, so we should do 2 with all in our sphere of influence – also our job.

Yesterday I asked the question that if someone’s world view made the gospel irrational to them, what could we do to open their mind. I suggested, “Not much.” That does not solve our challenge. We are still are expected to share the gospel, even to those who consider it irrational. 2 Corinthians 5:14 – 21 describes that responsibility as begging folks to be reconciled to God. 1 Peter 3:15 tells us that we are to conduct our lives in such a way that those who do have a different world view are intrigued and ask what is going on with us; Philippians 2:1 – 5 seems to describe that type of behavior. Certainly prayer plays a part. Paul asks for prayer in both Ephesians 6:19 and Colossians 3:3 – 6 not only for boldness and the words to say, but for openness to the gospel.
