Sharing Your Faith Is a Partnership, Not a Solo Gig

By: Donna Burke

I know Christians have been called to share the love of Jesus with their world, but for many of us this is still a scary thought, no matter how long we’ve been saved.

Putting yourself out there and sharing about your personal relationship with God can be truly daunting — but maybe that’s because we’ve somehow decided that the responsibility for the whole deal lie on our own shoulders?

There might be someone you know who really needs to know that God loves them and that they can find hope in the person of Jesus Christ. The question is how? How do you find the perfect opening to share? How do you put together compelling reasons for faith? How do you share your faith in such a way that your friend can’t help but believe that Jesus loves them? The simple answer — you don’t. If you’re waiting for the perfect moment, perfect delivery and perfect argument you will never share anything with anyone because it’s not about you.

Jesus never intended to leave us to walk out the great commission of sharing His love on our own. He promised to be with us and the Bible tells us that Holy Spirit is there to teach us and remind us of everything that Jesus has told us. So, when we go into the world to share the Good News about Jesus we don’t go in our own power. Sharing your faith is a partnership — the Holy Spirit and you. It’s up to you to make the introduction but it’s up to Him to touch the heart and open eyes to the truth about Jesus
