Mistaken Facebook Friend Request?

I received  friend request on Facebook from a name I could not place right away . I messaged the requester asking how we knew each other.

The return message was that we worked together for awhile at a nursing home in Kirksville. I responded that I had visited people there, never worked there, but was nonetheless always open to making new friends. Then I said, “I have an intriguing question, do you think most people will go to Heaven.” Their response was that all who ask God for forgiveness of sins and do their best to live for Him will definitely go to Heaven. I suggested looking at Matthew 7:13,14, qouted it in the message and asked if it confirmed their answer or caused them to alter it.

The reply was that they had never seen that scripture before, were at work and wanted to look up the reference further at home. I suggested also considering the Matthew 7:15-23 with a view to what it says about how to be part of the few.

I suggested that I like talking about the Lord and doing personal Bible studies with friends. Then I asked how interested they would be in continuing the conversation. They said they like talking about the Lord too.Then we friended each other on Facebook.

“Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving; praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned; that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak. Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.” Colossians 4:2-6 NASB

Keep alert at all times for the opportunities the Lord affords you to share His will with others.
