Turning points--5 actions that will transform your life

These are all excerpts taken from David Jeremiah from Turning Points.
Be strategic--
Consider those around you who need Christ. Make a prayer list. Think of ways to approach them with the gospel. Reach out to them with friendship and seek to strengthen your relationship with them. Live a consistent life before them, demonstrating the hope that is within you.
Be resourceful--
Practice the way you verbalize the Gospel message. Memorize a scripture verse such as John 3:16 or Romans 6:23, and devise a simple way of explaining it. Think through how you would answer the question the jailer asked Paul in Acts 16:30. "What must I do to be saved?"
Be patient--
Plant a seed! When it comes to winning others to Christ, we are often links in a God-planned chain.
Psalm 126:6 "He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing shall doubtless come again with rejoicing bringing his sheaves with him.
Psalm 46:10 says "be still and know that I am God." That verse reveals our bottom line and our top priority. The bottom line is: He is God, Creator of the Universe, Sustainer of Eternity. Our top priority is being still long enough each day to know Him. At life's greatest moments or dullest days, prayer is the conductor that keeps our focus on God, who can do exceeding abundantly more than we can ask or imagine.
