Remember, the Holy Spirit needs to act upon them for there to be actual heart change. "We love because He first loved us." 1 John 4:19 and in order to be drawn to Christ, they must be drawn there (chosen) by God first "No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day." John 6:44 This also constitutes the theory of predestination. "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified." Romans 8:28-30 So, when you help bring someone to faith in Christ, you are doing the will of the Father and are being led by the Holy Spirit to bring them closer to being open to accepting Christ in their lives.
I am so very glad that people took the time to nudge the door open just a little bit more for me in 2007 until I found the light and came to saving faith in Jesus. I was a sinner who had lost his way in the wilderness of this world. When I saw the light I repented, turned, accepted Jesus into my heart, and was Baptized. Beloved, there are no words of thanks to adequately thank those who nudged me in the direction of faith. I challenge you today to find ten people in your life who are far away from God, and to begin that conversation with them about coming to faith in Christ.
