21 Day Devotional: Day 9: Sharing Your Faith.

Sharing your faith in God with others is a commandment for all Christ followers.  When Jesus called His disciples, He said to them, Come, I will make you fishers of men.  As He prepared to return to Heaven after His resurrection, He commanded them to go and make disciples, to keep His commandments and to teach others His Word and commandments.  Sharing the good news is what the body of Christ is supposed to be doing!

But, what if people ask me questions and I don’t know the answer?
I am not good at memorizing scripture. 
I am not a preacher.
I am not good at talking in public.
You do not have to a preacher, teacher, or Bible scholar in order to share Jesus.  And, you do not have to know all the answers either.  If you have been following this guide, then you are reading God’s Word daily and hiding His Word in your heart, and if someone asks you a question you cannot answer, please feel free to ask us, that is why we are here.  But, sharing the gospel of Jesus doesn’t mean you have to give someone a speech, or quote Bible verses at them.   Sharing Jesus with the world can be done in a multitude of ways!

Look people in the eye and attentively listen while they talk.
Hold open the door and say “hello”.
Invite someone who’s struggling to church.
Hold hands with someone whose hurting and pray with them… just talk to God and ask Him to help in their situation.
Get a copy of this guide and give it to friend who is unsure or who wants to read their Bible and not sure how.
Read the Bible with a friend.  The book of John is easy to read and understand… which is why it’s where you’re starting.
Show someone love by being kind and helpful. 

When you share your faith, you are ministering to the needs of others, and you are being Jesus disciple.
“Go therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age. Amen.” (Matthew 28:19-20)

 Read John Chapter 9.
