Sheila’s Shofar – Today’s Call to Action – Tip of the Day

 Kudu or antelope or trumpet horn as often referred to in the Bible which Sheila sounds as an ancient Call-to-Action on the show.

Here is my Call to Action for today – Be prepared to respond when someone says they don’t need God.


 Conversation with Sheila Johnson (The Shorfar Lady) 

Amazing Snippets of Wisdom from our conversation:

Meditate on these Guest Quotes to see the useful wisdom that might come from God’s voice and resonate with your heart and be implemented today on your journey.

  1. Sheila: … and I remember, it’s like I made a decision of my will that I was going to go after this with all I have and that is when I began to experience the supernatural. Jesus taught “unless you have faith you will not see.”  It’s not that you will see and then you will have faith. You have to have faith first. I don’t know why but because I chose I am going to have faith and I did, it’s like someone pulled back the curtain of this other dimension, the supernatural, and I began to have visions.
  2. Paul: If you are not operating at a level that needs God for you to operate at that level, you haven’t set your sights high enough. In other words, if you’re operating in your own strength, then you are operating not at their optimal level. You need to operate at a level that is beyond your own strength and that is a level that God operates on.
  3. Paul: When we are approaching people to introduce them to Jesus, there is logic, there is emotion, and then there is authenticity and ethics. So we have to be cognizant of these three factors and that’s why just like I said, by debating somebody you might win the debate but that’s not going to make them interested in Jesus because you’ve left out the other two factors.
  4. Paul: People won’t care about what you know until they know that you care.

Key Points Discussed:

  • Sheila’s atheistic life period story
  • Story of Danny’s faith discovery
  • Barriers to knowing God
  • Misguided rejection of God
  • Without God there is no foundation for ethics and morality
  • Elements of Persuasion
  •      Logos – Logical foundation and evidence for God
  •      Ethos – perceived ethical character of presenter
  •      Pathos – emotional connectedness to the hearer
  • God’s purpose in our life – reconciliation
  • Have faith then you will see – not the other way around

Take-Away Wisdom that leads to action today:

  • Sheila’s Tips for starting off 2018
    1. Pray and seek guidance from the Holy Spirit for natural opportunities to present God to someone.
    2. Be ready to give an answer to questions asked about God.
    3. Let people see Jesus manifested in you – Rom 2:4 “…God’s love leads you to repentance”
