Sharing Jesus when you don’t feel like it
Tired of trying to tell your friends the Gospel? Here's why you shouldn't give up.
The moment I learned that God loves me and he gives me a chance to let Him enter my life, I accepted Him.
That day was the happiest day of my life, knowing I had Jesus with me. And I had a desire to share him with others.
Although I tried, most of the people I met rejected him ... leaving me really disappointed and with a mix of feelings:
- Why try to share God if they won’t accept him at all?
- God is offering them a free gift, what more do they want?
- It hurts to be rejected. The God I love and yearn for was just rejected ... and will be rejected by many more.
- The worst thing is that he loves them so much, and it means nothing to them.
These feelings and thoughts almost pushed me to stop sharing Christ. But Jesus said in Matthew 24:14:
And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations [all people] will hear it; and then the end will come.
The end will come—not when everybody has accepted Christ, but when everyone has heard about him. And it is up to them (not me) whether they accept him or not.
This made me realise that it's our job as Christians to let everyone hear about Jesus. But each person is responsible for their response (which is between him/ her and God only). We hope they will accept him, but even if they don't, we need to keep going anyway!
So, let’s continue to share Jesus to others. Let everyone hear about what He has done. For when everyone hears about Him, then our God will come and receive the glory he deserves.
Success in witnessing is simply taking the initiative to share Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit, and leaving the results to God. –Campus Crusade for Christ
