Know Him More

Let’s Talk Jesus

We all get stumped 

Let us talk about Jesus. Let’s stop spending most of our lives healing our emotions. We don’t feel qualified and look like we are all shades of messy speaking about Christ. We get scared and shy sharing what we believe, especially if the person we are talking to express the opposite of our faith. It’s good to have real conversations especially when you subtly share Jesus with others through them. 

You don’t have to discriminate or get pissed if someone doesn’t believe in the supernatural. People are saved by the power of God not by human ability. God is responsible for the salvation of a person.

I remember when I was talking to a colleague about the love of God, I started casually but like 5 people joined in and this made me more confident to say what I wanted. It brought me joy, right there I got a deeper understanding of Christ. I used my experience with Him and shared it with others. There was one guy that was bent on frustrating and twisting every word I said but I remembered every awesome work of God in me and refused to be deterred. Our testimonies come in handy in sharing God’s word. At a point everyone had something to say about what God did for them. 

The HolySpirit will give you words. You might be rejected. Jesus was rejected too! Don’t forget you have heavenly reward when persecuted. (Matthew 5:11-12) all we have to do is share the word and God will take care of the growth. It mustn’t be a polished presentation. You don’t require years of training either. Most of us have gifts and talents. We are living for a purpose bigger than ourselves. 

We can merge our personal story with the gospel. No contrivance. Just you, Christ and others in discussions that matter. 

Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (Matthew 5:11-12)

Philemon 6 the Apostle Paul says to Philemon, “I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ” (NIV).

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes… (Romans 1:16)

    ‘Let’s stop spending most of our lives healing our emotions.’ Ah. Wisdom.

    I recently printed some tracts to share out daily and indeed, its a step of faith everyday. Many times, it is never a polished presentation, like when I’m speaking English and the only words the Hausa okada man understands is Jesus. ? Keep it up!

    I agree that “we are all living for a higher purpose”. And, the sooner we align ourselves with been true representatives, even in subtle ways, of God Almighty and His infinite kindness, the more mercies and grace we receive. Taking a line from the Holy Koran, …”Are we not blessed even more by Allah, when we show appreciation to him and remain faithful” (unknown verse).
