SELLING JESUS

I could sell anything in the world. I have that natural ability. When I believe in a product or thing, I research it well and present my case. I remove every obstacle in front of me and hence, I get the sale.

In my previous positions, as a sales and advertising executive, I did my best to represent the companies and secure the orders. As an educator, I "sold" the students on the importance of learning and obtaining knowledge...all things I value today.

However, today, I face my biggest challenge. SELLING JESUS. Perhaps my most difficult "Sale", but certainly the most important and valuable. I am one, who has been asked by Jesus himself I believe, "to inspire others to turn towards HIM". It is almost too surreal to believe...
This great, famous, historical figure of all time...who also happens to be the SON OF GOD, has me assisting in SELLING HIM TO THE WORLD!

It is not always easy. There is a fine balance that I strive to keep within myself on a personal and professional level. You see, I do not work for a regular corporation and work 40 hours a week. I do not represent a company. I do not represent a product with pros's and con's or something I do not believe in 1000%. My job is slow and steady and it is sometimes hard to measure my success.

The one huge gift that comes with my work is the intimate knowledge of Our Beloved Lord. HE is always available to me. HE always reveals what I need to know. I am so Blessed to know and feel HIS amazing love and presence, that it alone sustains me in my work.

If only the world knew Jesus like me, if only I could capture HIS SPIRIT, PERSONALITY, LOVE and SELL IT TO THE WORLD...then I would experience real success today in my life.
SELLING JESUS is not always easy, but it is the most important job of my career. I pray many people turn to HIM because of my SALES...I hope to get many orders for HIM.

First I want to say that without Jesus in my life, i really would have no life, he teaches me compassion, how to walk in love, forgiveness comes easily now.The Lord died on the cross for all our sins to be forgiven, and when we are reborn we are new creatures in Christ Old things have passed away. I praise u my Father and give u all the glory each and every day. 1 Cor. 2:16 ( this is my moms birthday and she is with the Lord now : I have the mind of Christ and hold the thoughts, feelings, and purposes of His heart.
Thank you Jesus

Well it looks like you made another sale…

I’m impressed, you did a fine job. Here I am putting in my order and God knows I’ve already got more of “Him” than I could ever use in this lifetime!! Funny thing is I still don’t think I’ll ever have enough of “Him.” Besides, “He’s” the kind of thing that you like to have on hand. You never know who’s going to show up, and I like to have “Him” in abundance so I can share “Him” with others.

With that said… you keep selling, and I expect to keep buying.

“Blessings”

Dear Matt,
I love your comment sooooo much!
It is beautiful and sweet like you and Jesus!

I too, can never have enough of Jesus ...funny, because the closer we get to Jesus, the more we want HIM, the more we need HIM and the more we love HIM!

I feel so appreciated by your kind and loving words. If Jesus is this happy...I am in good shape! I always aim to please my boss!
Love you friend,
Kath

Have you read the book "The Greatest Salesman in the World"? You sound like you could have written it. Seriously, it's a great book. Read it if you can. It's got a great ending. (Just don't skip ahead like my wife likes to do.)

I'm currently going through a divorce, my wife left me for a boyfriend and I've been very successful so their plan was premeditated along with some additional family. I have chosen file bankruptsy just to watch them squirm and implode:) for money was never my motivation it was only to serve and this biblical concept translates to success in the business world. A few awsome things have been revealed and it's funny now because as a christian man I know realize that " my only soulmate is a male ( Jesus:) and in my next marriage I will be the bride, hopefully my newly converted family will be the wedding party! Thanks be to god! He opens doors and he shuts them always for our good!
