Thought For Today: Sharing your faith
Sharing your faith: Many Christians are intimidated by the idea of sharing their faith. Jesus never intended for the Great Commission to be an impossible burden. God meant for us to be witnesses of Jesus Christ through the natural outcome of living for him. We make it complicated. We think we must complete a 10-week course on evangelism and apologetics before getting started. Or perhaps take to haranguing all and sundry with leaflets, invitations to church, and sermonizing conversations.
However, God has designed a more accessible evangelism program. True it is life-long rather than just ten weeks but it is tailor made just for you and he takes you through it at your own pace. This on the job course is called ‘You Being You’. There are five gospels. Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and You. Your non-church colleagues, friends and neighbours may not be inclined to read the first four gospels but consciously or subconsciously they do read you on a regular basis. Your life, your attitude, your comments, your integrity – reflect or deflect the good news of Jesus Christ.
