Why can we talk about how cold (or hot, or rainy, or dry, etc.) so readily to others but are so reluctant to tell them about Jesus? This past week it seems that everyone (including strangers) wanted to talk about how cold it's been. Can you just imagine a town, or even a church, where people would begin a conversation with God? In Deut. 6:7 the people were to talk about God when they sat in their houses, when they walked by the way, when they lay down, and when the rise up each day. Jesus told us in Matt. 28:19 to: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations..." Now, how can we do that unless we talk about Him? It's so cold that I am grateful God has provided warmth for me!!

For His Cause,
