Sharing your faith. Is this a foreign concept???
Many "Christians" believe that once they get some God in their lives, they can just rest on that, until the day of judgement. Do you think this is true? Or is there more to it than that?
Well, the Bible says - And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. - Mark 16:15
The Bible also says - Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. - II Timothy 4:2
It's pretty clear that Jesus is saying, that we should be out there and sharing our Faith.
And what about those people close to you? Your brother or sister... Mom or dad, maybe even a cousin, nephew, niece, uncle, aunt - or your best friend... Don't they deserve to hear the truth? For you to "Pay it Forward" to them. How are they going to know about Jesus, unless YOU tell them? Are you going to count on someone else, hoping that day will come?
How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? - Romans 10:14
So, why don't "Christians" go out and share their Faith?
There are so many excuses that I have had personally, to not share my Faith. The biggest one was that I thought that was only for preachers in a church, so I didn't have to. Once I started to realize that the Bible meant for all Christians, yes - even me to put myself myself out there and "preach", I started to worry. So many things ran through my head like, I'm not good enough - I've done too much bad, I don't know enough of the Bible, I'm not a very good speaker, I... I... I...
You see the theme here? Everything that "I" thought had to do with what "I" could or couldn't do - Limiting what God could do through me... I replaced the "I" with God and swapped out all the negative speak, with positive, uplifting speak. And it started with Philippians - 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
So, that's what was stopping me. What's stopping you?
