“How then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?” Rom_10:14
Why is it so hard to talk about Jesus? Why do we hesitate sharing what we believe, teach and confess? It can be hard and we do hesitate. Why?
- We don’t want to say the wrong thing?
- That’s really the job of the pastor!
- We are embarrassed because it is so personal.
- We don’t want to offend anyone.
- Sometimes we neglect caring about the faith, life and eternity of our neighbor.
- Reasons you might add
Sharing the Gospel and speaking about Jesus is not something we HAVE to do but something we can learn to do. If a young lady is newly engaged she seems to do everything with her left hand because she is excited and anxious to tell about her engagement! When our team wins the BIG one it takes no coaxing to get us to talk about it. New baby – same thing! When something really big happens we may bubble over with the news.
Burning within our hearts is the news of the Gospel which is far bigger than anything else we have to share or say! While kids say exactly what they think and while some people have a lot of filters on their conversation, we can by God’s grace share in wonderful ways the news that changes people’s lives and their eternal destiny! Its BIG really BIG and we get to share it! We may give our political views and other opinions and observations but the Apostle Paul said, “For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” 1Co_2:2
