Being a witness is not hard and the gospel we share is really good news. The difficulty has to be with us. This is a real issue with many of us as believers. There is is this fear in us that something bad will happen to us if we witness. Maybe we will get rejected. Maybe we won’t know what to say. Maybe we will get made fun of. All of those excuses are inwardly focused. When we take our eyes and focus from ourselves and on to others these excuses seem to go away.
We live in a society that glorifies self-centeredness. We are encouraged to have it our own way and we are told that it is all about us and what we want and need. That has created a generation that does not really consider others. The only way we can turn this trend around it to ask the Holy Spirit to change our hearts. This is urgent. The time of Christ’s appearing is getting closer all the time. There are people that need to hear the good news that we have. We are witness to what God has done in our life and we should always be ready share what He has done for us. It’s not complicated if we consider eternity separated from God is what those that are lost will face if they don’t hear. Remember this life is not about us, even if society tells us it is.
