MAKE IT ATTRACTIVE

READ:
Colossians 4:2-6

Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.
-Colossians 4:5

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Job 11-13
Acts 9:1-21

The story is of a young boy who, during a bygone era, was aboard a passenger train attempting to make money selling apples. He made his way through the train car, saying “Apples! Would you like to buy an apple?” When he got to the rear of the car, he still had a bagful of apples and no money.
A gentleman who noticed his plight took him aside and asked to see one of the apples. He proceeded to go to the front of the train, polish it conspicuously with a napkin, and then walk down the aisle eating the apple and commenting on how delicious and refreshing it was. Then he told the boy to try again. This time, he sold every apple. The difference? The apples had been made attractive to the potential customers.
This story can remind us of one way we can interest others in the gospel of Jesus Christ: Make it attractive to them – show them the difference it has made in our own lives. That is best done by following the words of Paul in Colossians 4:5. “Be wise,” he said, “in the way you act towards outsiders, make the most of every opportunity” (NIV). If we show kindness, love and compassion to others, those who observe us will wonder why, and that may give us an opening to tell them about the beauty of God’s love for them. – Dave Branon
Dear God, You have given us so much by providing our salvation. Help us to make the gospel attractive to others by the way we shine Jesus’ light on those we encounter each day.

The beauty of a changed life can attract others to the One who makes us beautiful.
