My challenge for all of us, myself included, is to share our faith more. Sharing your faith is so intimidating for many. Most of us want to share our faith, but knowing what to say and how to say it stops many in their tracks. So how do you share your faith without making people run and hide from you? I’m going to make it as easy as I can. Here is my personal Top 2 Ways To Share Your Faith. Go ahead, give them a try…
# 2 – Don’t compromise on your beliefs. Situations happen every day where compromise is not only possible, but many times is expected. Show people that your Christianity means living a life of integrity. In our world today, we are told that whatever is politically correct is the way that it is. Media tells us that values and morals are no longer important. But I challenge you, don’t compromise on what the word of God teaches.
And # 1 – Be real. People can spot a phony from a mile away. The absolute worst thing you can do is say one thing and do another. If you aren’t committed to applying Christian principles in your own life, you will not only be ineffective, but you will actually do more harm than good. People aren’t as interested in what you say, as they are in seeing how it’s working in YOUR life. So simply live what you say you believe. Saying you’re a Christian is one thing, but living it in tangible ways every day is something else. The Bible tells us that “they’ll know them by their fruit.”
The best way to share your faith is be an example. People will want to know how you can be peaceful in the storm, why your kids are doing so well, why your marriage is so great, how you know for sure about your purpose in life, and they will want to know why you live the way you do. And when they ask, you’ll have all kinds of great stuff to share.
So go ahead and give it a try. Attempt to share your faith more. Don’t be willing to compromise on your beliefs, and stop talking about your faith, and start living it out. And then…, when the opportunity arises, and I am sure it will, you just have to open your eyes to it, you will have a chance to tell others about the faith that you have.
