jbertonbounds :I believe my calling is to share one-on-one as opportunities come, and the Spirit "whispers in my ear" when it's time, and gives me the words.Would you be willing to share with us how you knew this was your calling?
We are all called to share the truth of the gospel. We UR believers have "discovered" the truth of the Gospel of Victory, as opposed to the gospel of fear. Why would anyone not want to share this truly good news with the world, especially those who already believe in Jesus as the Savior?
UR was revealed to me right after I began praying in earnest that God teach me truth. To answer your question, God has given me such a desire to share it, that I am willing to take chances that it will cost me personally - and I have peace about that. It's a feeling that I know in my inner being that God has revealed this to me for the purpose of telling others. I know this sounds vague, but that's the best I can explain it. It's an inner knowledge and an inner peace.
Since we communicated last week, there has been a new development with me, and this is what I posted in the prayer room thread Saturday:
My ET church is uneasy.
I have posted several UR links on FaceBook, with messages to encourage folks to check out UR.
A number of my FaceBook friends are members of my ET church.
I have also spoken with several individuals in our ET church about UR one-on-one.
This has caused quite a stir, as I am told.
The head deacon has paid me a visit and strongly (but lovingly) suggested that I keep it quiet.
He implied that action would be taken in the future if I continue.
I cannot, will not keep quiet.
I know it's part of truly following Jesus, but still, I hurt.
I do have peace about this, but still the grief is something the deal with. I do grieve for my church. I keep asking myself the question:
"Since we are all believers, why can't we have differences
in beliefs, and still worship and serve together?"
