Today’s devotion is based on Acts 26:27-29, where we read about a discussion between King Agrippa and Paul. “‘King Agrippa, do you believe the prophets? I know that you do!’ Agrippa said to Paul, ‘In this short time do you think you will make me a Christian?’ ‘Whether a short time or a long time,’ Paul answered, ‘my prayer to God is that you and all the rest of you who are listening to me today might become what I am – except of course, for these chains!’”
 
While there are many logical arguments for becoming a Christian, there is no logical argument that will make a person become a Christian. That does not mean that we should not talk to others about the importance of becoming a Christian. You cannot, in the end, convince someone to be a Christian. For it is, after all, God alone, through the work of the Holy Spirit who gives the faith to become a Christian. Sometimes we have to let go of our own strength, our own cleverness and our own desire for instant success in bringing others to faith. Where we end, God begins, and he can and will act on those he chooses.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, gracious God, creator, and sustainer of all things seen and unseen guide me through your Word so that all who watch me and listen to me as I live my will become believing children of God, In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
