I am reading a book by David Jeremiah entitled Signs of Life. He says, "as Christians we should be making people thirsty for God." I think it is important to examine our lives routinely to see how we are doing with this. Some questions to ask:
"Am I encouraging others in their Christian walk?"
"Is it evident to those I meet that I am a follower of Christ?"
"Is my speech honoring to God?"
"Are my deeds evident of my motivation as Christ's child?"
Think of a hot summer day when you have been working outside for a few hours. You take a break and relax in the shade, drinking an iced cold glass of tea, lemonade or water - something that refreshes and quenches the thirst. This is how we should be to the people we meet - a cool drink in a dry and thirsty land.
How are you doing with making people thirsty for God?
