My mother has recently come to live with us. (She'll be in a mobile home on the other side of the yard as soon as the electrician is done.) It is becoming more and more obvious to me that she is NOT a Christian, and alas, I am not an outspoken witness. In fact, I'm more or less a silent witness - people see a change in me, I constantly wear a cross and Christian T-shirts, I'm very involved with my church, etc., but I don't know how to talk to Mom about Jesus. Since I became a Christian in '01 and joined a church and was baptized, the rest of the family (mom and brothers and sister) has treated me like I'm a religious fanatic. From their reaction to the changes in me, you'd think I'd run off with a cult, that at last the black sheep had gone off the deep end, and these reactions are based only on my statement of having joined a church and gotten baptized! I don't know what to do about this situation. I certainly don't want Mom to be lost, but I honestly don't think she'd believe anything I might say. To add to the puzzle, her brother is a Presbyterian minister! She attended church every Sunday when she lived with him for two years, and either she never heard the gospel or the information didn't sink in. My biggest fear is that the Rapture could happen before she might be saved. She'd be all alone after that, and I'm the child (of 4 to choose from) that she decided to live with. I can't let her down! My husband I believe we were led by God to care for my mother. Either I am the child that needs her the most, and I am the child that SHE needs the most. See my predicament? Would it be cowardly of me, or a burden on him, if I asked our pastor to pay her a visit? This is tearing me up. I've asked God for wisdom in this matter, and I don't want to goof it up.
