How hard is it to tell someone good news? If I found a cure for cancer, would it be difficult to share that information? If I were to discover the answer to world hunger and ruin every Miss America candidate’s answer to the interview questions, would that be hard to share? Is it hard to tell people that USC found a way after all these years to win three in a row over the Tigers if you are one of those silly chicken people? Just kidding.
We do not normally find it that difficult to share Good News. Except when it comes to our faith in Jesus Christ. Why is that, I wonder? Perhaps it is fear of the unknown, or perhaps it is because we just don’t know how/ This week at CHurch Unleashed, Dennis Nunn of “Every beleiver a witness” gave us some very practical tools to share our faith. It is going to make this a very interesting year at church. It has been an amazing day sharing the Steps to Peace With God tracts all around. My wife actually warned me that someone might be out an APB on a salt and pepper haired middle age man giving tracts to everyone. Wouldn’t that be cool?
I want to challenge everyone to get in on the fun. Tell your personal story. Pray for your server at meals. Give away a Gospel tract. And here is a radical idea. Actually pray that God use all of your tools to radically change some people’w lives.It is pretty doggone Great News, actually. Jesus Christ died on a cross for the sins of all mankind and rose from the grave. You can turn from your sins and place your faith in Christ. “For whosoever calls on the name of the Lord, will be saved.”
