The film Schindler’s List is based on the true story of Oskar Schindler, a German businessman who saw how the Nazis were persecuting the Jews. So he began hiring more and more Jewish people to work for him in his factories, with the objective of saving them from the Nazis.
In fact, that is what he spent the rest of his life doing. He essentially put all his money into it and ended up saving more than a thousand Jewish people. Today their descendants are many. But in the film, Schindler laments that he couldn’t have saved more.
I wonder if we will look back on our lives and say, “I should have shared my faith more. I should have told more people”?
I think when we get to Heaven, we will wish that we had done more when we were on this earth. There is happiness in telling others about Jesus. Psalm 126 says, “Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy. They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest” (verses 5–6 NLT).
Conversion is the work of the Holy Spirit. God doesn’t hold us accountable for how many people come to Christ through our testimony or sharing. I’ve never converted a single person and never will. And if I had, then he or she would be one sorry convert.
My job is to sow the seeds of the gospel. My job is to live the Christian life. My job is to look for opportunities to engage people in evangelistic conversations. The results are up to God.
Sharing our faith changes the lives and destinies of those who believe. It’s one of the few things we can do in this life that has eternal ramifications.
