Ever wake up to a soft alarm?
The very phrase sounds like an oxymoron. But it starts softly and slowly builds to a point where you have to act on it. You’ve got to get up. It’s like sharing Jesus with people. You have to start gently. You can’t scream “repent” right out of the shoot like a crazy loud alarm clock. You’ll run them right off.
You may carry a big stick, but be sure to use it wisely. Don’t beat people up with it. Gently and gradually share the truth. Eventually, it gets loud enough in their spirit and they have to wake up and act on it.
People need Jesus!
