For those of you who are regularly reading our blog, first off we would like to say “THANK YOU!” We are looking forward to getting to know all of you personally as we pose questions and conversations that hopefully challenge one another to share views on Christianity, Life, and a host of other topics.
On Mondays I find myself with a little extra computer time… I guess it’s my way of taking a vacation from the hustle of another week getting kicked off. Starting today I’d like to ask a question on Monday’s for our readers to answer in hopes that we gain insight and encouragement from each other.
Sharing our faith is one of the most powerful ways to advance the Kingdowm of God. God’s Word says that “we overcome thru the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony” (Rev 12:11). Sometimes I find myself too comfortable with salvation. God saved us and then said, “GO! ” (Mark 16:15) Now it’s realistic to accept that not everyone is called to the mission field. However, when I began to think about how many people I come in contact with in a given day, I was faced with the realization that we ARE on the mission field everyday! The issue then becomes, what keeps me from sharing my faith, or being willing to offer a reason why I have the hope of Jesus (1 Peter3:15). Yes we are to walk quietly and live humble lives, but it remains true that God gives us these opportunities to talk about Him to co-workers, friends, and even complete strangers. These encounters are setup by Him! We need to become more confident in what we believe. Trying to keep an eternal perspective day-to-day will help us view those meetings more faith-filled and eager to make our Savior known! We should not be ashamed of our King. (Mark 8:38 II Tim 1:8)
Today’s Question: “When you are given opportunities to share your faith with another person, what do you say and how do you approach the situation?” Be open, honest, and vulnerable. This is a time where we all get to share the amazing ways God works in and through us!
