I have a Jewish raised friend that I wish I could introduce to Christ. I am terrible with spoken words, I stammer and forget things and say things wrong. Indeed, I don't even come across with written words, because I am taken the wrong way on bulletin boards as well. But I have been praying for her for a while now. Her life is steadily getting difficult. Her marriage is breaking up. She has 2 kids and is in debt. I have made some baby steps. I have told her I am praying for her. She wished one day she could change her husband.(he needs changing!) I told her that I couldn't do that, but the Lord certainly could. Yesterday I invited her to church. She seemed surprised, not very interested, and told me that she had never been to a Christian church since she grew up Jewish. I told her that church was easy and rambled about some other stuff. Not what I should have said, but it was so hard for me to invite her in the first place that I got nervous! I did end up telling her that we would love to have her and her family attend. Now, please don't start berating me for my shortcomings. I KNOW what they are, so does God. I pray for boldness with my tongue to share the gospel. I haven't gotten it yet, but I am getting there. I am such an intovert and being persuasive is so hard for me! I even think I have a little asperegers syndrome. What I am wanting to know is a little more about Jews. Do they still wait for the Messiah? Do they preach against Christianity? How much can I expect my friend to know about Jesus? And how can I introduce Him to someone who seems to know nothing about Him? I am seeing her less and less, by the way, as her life is getting to be more of a struggle. Our friendship is a working friendship; I do sewing for her. Her buisiness is slipping and I may not have much reason to keep seeing her soon.
