August 12th 2019 – Sharing Your Faith

“Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it.” (1 Peter 3:15)

Sharing our faith is critical for every Christian. After all, this is what Jesus commands us to do, and if we have been changed by the Gospel, why wouldn’t we want to share it? That being said, we are never called to be combative in sharing the Truth. We are to be bold and unwavering in speaking the Truth, but we should do so in meekness and respect.

When Peter is writing in the book of 1 Peter, he is talking to a church that is suffering. It would make sense that they would want to stand up and fight off those who are oppressing them, yet Peter calls for them to endure persecution with a readiness to share their faith. Not just share, but for them to do so in a gentle and respectful way. Peter says, “Then if people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live because you belong to Christ.”
(1 Peter 3:16)

A peaceable life, matched with a powerful message has the power to bring conviction and repentance. So try love others in such a way that even when you share hard truths, they will see your good works and glorify God.

Persecution is not an excuse to be mean-spirited or combative. Christians are called to suffer with meekness so that others may see their life and be saved.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your grace. Thank You for saving me and empowering me with the Holy Spirit so that I can live for You. Use my life to shine Your love and Truth to everyone around me. Give me a desire to share Jesus with everyone even though it may lead to persecution. Help me to be bold yet loving as I share the Good News of the Gospel with a hurting world. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

September 5th 2017 – Holy Boldness

“He will not crush those who are weak, or quench the smallest hope, until he brings full justice with his final victory. And his name will be the hope of all the world.” (Matthew 12:20-21)

God does not want His children to feel beat up about sharing their faith in Him. He wants to encourage us to share our faith.

Take a look at the apostle Peter’s life, we see certain things that are important for us to recognize. Peter had not only failed miserably by not sharing his faith, but also by denying his faith. Then, in the book of Acts we see a changed Peter. He boldly declares to the Jewish leaders “let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole.” (Acts 4:10)

Despite Peter’s failure, God still worked through him. Perhaps you have had some failures in sharing your faith. Maybe you have even denied Jesus in your words or your actions. However small or frail your desire to tell others about Jesus may be, God will take that desire and fan the flames of it until it is a roaring inferno. God wants us to share our faith and He works with us right where we are. All He asks for is a willing heart and mouth to speak on His behalf.

“God can give us a Holy Boldness to share our faith.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for this gift of salvation. Help me to be bold in sharing it with others. I haven’t been so bold in the past and have closed my mouth when I should have spoken. Please forgive me for that and renew my desire to share this message of forgiveness of sins to the world. I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
