KEY VERSEIsaiah 34:2 (Isaiah to all)
For the Lord is enraged against the nations. His fury is against all their armies. He will completely destroy them, dooming them to slaughter.

I love you, and I love the world. I have done everything possible to engage the world and invite it to be in a relationship with me. And I will continue to do so until Jesus returns. But I will not force my will on anyone. I extend my hand and love to all. It is available to you and everyone you see. But if any choose to decline my invitation, I will allow them to go their own way. As long as they have breath, my invitation is available, and so I wait for a response, and I pursue relationships with all.

Turn to me for life. Run to me for protection. Seek me for wisdom. Call on me for comfort. Surrender to me for love and everything you’ve ever wanted. My global judgment is coming, and I want to protect you and everyone you know from it. I am here. Turn to me, and I will receive you.

Ask someone you know what they believe about God. Then ask if you can share what you think. Keep it short—90 seconds or fewer—and ask if they are interested in beginning or growing in their relationship with God.
