When you witness to others about Jesus Christ, you will run into some people who will have objections or questions.

Suppose you want to talk to someone about being born again, and they say to you, "Not now—some other time." How do you answer this objection?

Here are some Scriptures that will help you. When they say, "Not now, some other time," read from Proverbs 27:1: "Boast not thyself of tomorrow, for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth."

Hebrews 3:15: "While it is yet today, if you will hear his voice, harden not your hearts."

Luke 12:19: "And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee, then whose shall those things be which thou has provided?"

With God, Time Is Of The Essence
Use these verses of Scriptures to encourage them to make that commitment to the Lord right now.

You might also want to have this verse of Scripture that I think is very important: Isaiah 55:6, "Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near."

Try to encourage them to realize that God's time is RIGHT NOW!

I found out that I was putting on some kind of religions facade, it was sort of a mask in some ways, to get up behind the pulpit and suddenly sound religious, as opposed to just being me.

I found out that I can't be Billy Graham, because God called Billy Graham to be Billy Graham. I just have to be me. I found out that just being Dwight Thompson was the best thing to be because that was all I was.

Just be sincere! Paul said in Philippians 1:10, "That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ."

I want you who are reading this just to be yourself. You're really super! God had a wonderful idea when He made you, so don't try to be someone else—just be yourself.

You will influence someone that will never listen to me. I could never reach them but YOU CAN! Let that personality just come out and be yourself, because people will listen to you.
