Sometimes I feel like I over-think sharing Jesus. In my mind, I believe I need to use well thought out, seamless words that penetrate a person’s heart the moment they’re spoken. And, to be honest, I don’t always know what to say (like 85% of the time).

 

Well, lately I’ve been watching a series on sharing Jesus with my connect group (a small bible study group), and I’ve learned that sharing the Good News isn’t as complicated as I’ve made it. Sharing the Gospel can be as simple as, “Hey, do you want to go to church with me Sunday?” Yeah, that easy!…A lot of people don’t attend church because they’ve never been invited. Wow! I had no idea (just learned that)…

 

I believe the biggest challenge to sharing the message of Jesus is the fear of rejection. I cannot promise that the message you share won’t be rejected, BUT don’t let rejection stop you. Have faith that you’re sowing seeds, and pray that God sends other people along to “water” those seeds…a seed as small as inviting a friend to church could one day turn into your friend accepting Jesus into their heart.

 

Okay, now for a final update on my friend who was on a mission trip (click here to read the previous update):

She’s made it safely back to the States! Thank you so much to everyone who prayed for her. Because of your prayers, her and her team were able to reach the “unreachable.”…we are the body of Christ. We are his feet; we’re called to take His Good News to our neighborhoods and to the nations. We are his arms; we’re called to reach those deemed “unreachable.” Our purpose is the let others know God loves them, and He has not forgotten about them…Your prayers were priceless! Thanks again!! **G.I.G.**
