I’ve spent countless hours speaking to people who really weren’t interested in listening to the Good News I was sharing with them. Since I am convinced that this will bless them and impact their lives, I kept on trying to get through. But they were not ready to receive my message.
Jesus instructed the seventy two to find the “person of peace” who would be open to their message.
“Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘peace be to this house’ and if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. But if not, it will return to you” (Luke 10:5-7).
“Heal the sick in it and say to the, the kingdom of God has come near to you. But whenever you enter a town and they do not receive you,l go into its streets and say, ‘Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near” (Luke 10:9-11).
Find the persons of peace, and let the kingdom come into their hearts and homes.
