A young salesman was disappointed about losing a big sale & as he talked with his sales manager, he lamented, “I guess it just proves you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.”
The manager replied, “Your job is not to make him drink. Your job is to make him thirsty.”
So it is with evangelism. Our lives should be so filled with Christ that they create a thirst for the Gospel.
“The key to Christian living is a thirst and hunger for God. And one of the main reasons people do not understand or experience the sovereignty of grace and the way it works through the awakening of sovereign joy is that their hunger and thirst for God is too small.” - John Piper.
Jesus responded and said to her, “Everyone drinking from this water will thirst again. But whoever should drink from the water which I will give him - he will never thirst, ever. On the contrary, the water which I will give him will become a spring of water in him, bubbling-up to eternal life”. (Jn 4:13-14 DLNT)
