From Here To Him

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear….” 1 Peter 3:15

Phillip got the call from God to go to a desert road to share the gospel with an Ethiopian eunuch. The African was reading a Scripture that sparked questions, and God, in His grace, supplied someone to answer them. I love that the Bible says that “Phillip opened His mouth and beginning from the Scripture he preached Jesus to him.” Phillip started from where the man was and beat a path straight to the cross. Is there any road that God’s Spirit cannot hack through to the cross?

This holiday season is an ideal time to talk about Jesus to people who do not know Him. They are already singing about Him. Christmas is a blaring conversation piece for sharing the gospel. I encourage you, My Friend, to ask the Lord to open your eyes to those opportunities in which many are in an ideal place to consider the real reason for this season!

Welcome to Encouragement Outpost! My name is Dr. Georgia Pointer, a Christian writer who loves encouraging people in their relationship with Christ. I am a survivor of childhood rape and molestation, bullying, and emotional abuse. Negative thought patterns plagued me for many years until I learned to allow Christ and His Word to encourage and transform those thoughts. This background provides me with a passion to offer the same encouragement to anyone, not just abuse survivors, with the light of biblical truth that shines against the darkness of negativity, lies of the enemy, and daily struggles in living for Christ. I am a seminary graduate with a Masters in Christian Education. I also recently received my doctorate in Christian Counseling with a specialty in Family and Substance Abuse counseling. I served on staff for six years as a counselor at Moriah House of the Memphis Union Mission. I love the Word of God! I love studying it, teaching it, and speaking in public about it any chance I get. This blog, which I post about once a week, is my venue to share insights I glean. So, I invite you to subscribe to receive my weekly posts in your email and to share these posts with anyone you think might be encouraged by them.
