Someone wrote: "My wife, a registered nurse, once fussed over every pain or mishap that came my way. Recently, however, I got an indication that the honeymoon is over. I was about to fix the attic fan, and as I lifted myself from the ladder in the attic, I scratched my forehead on a crossbeam. Crawling along, I picked up splinters in both hands, and I cut one hand replacing the fan belt. On the way down the ladder, I missed the last two rungs and turned my ankle. When I limped into the kitchen, my wife took one look and said, "Are those your good pants?”
Matthew 28:19-20: "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 to the end of the age.” Amen.”
Too often, we take things, people, relationships and privileges for granted. Telling someone about our relationship with God is not a burden, but a blessing. However, it is also a responsibility and we're commanded to do it. Yes, our life should be a witness and yes, there are some with the gift of evangelism, BUT, all believers have been given the Great Commission of Matthew 28:19-20.
Witnessing does not have to be such a burden, so scary, so stressful. If we will spend a little time in preparation and prayer, it can become natural.
The Honeymoon may be over, but the passion can be stronger than ever! Rekindle the flames by learning to share your faith for the glory of God. If you are interested, I'm teaching a short course on "Learning to Share My Faith" starting this Sunday at 5:00.
