Sharing Our Faith

A man was asked to deliver three penguins to the zoo before closing time. But his truck broke down. He hailed a friend, expressed his need and gave him $25.00 to run his errand. Just when the truck was fixed, his friend came by with the penguins. He said, “I took them to the zoo. They liked it so much, now I am taking them to the park.”

Have you ever been misunderstood? Sharing your faith can be a frightening task for some Christians. They are fearful of being misunderstood or not being able to communicate effectively. Paul helps us with these fears. First, we must pray and pray diligently. God is faithful to help us when we share the gospel with others. Second, we are to keep our eyes open for opportunities to show Christ’s love to unbelievers through word and action. Are you willing to ask God for opportunities to share your faith?

Prayer: Lord, I pray that the words that leave my lips will always be gracious, kind and Godly. I ask that You will speak through me when I have an opportunity to share my faith. In Christ Name, Amen.

Scripture for Today: Colossians 4:1-6
