Sharing Your Faith & Sweet Potato Scones

1 Corinthians 1:17 (easy)

Christ did not send me to baptize people. But he did send me to tell the good news to people. He does not want me to tell it with the same kind of clever words that clever people might say. That would destroy the power of the message about Jesus. The message is about how he died on a cross to save us.

Read

Almost every time I think about sharing my faith, doubt and fear immediately follow. I begin to think about how uneducated I am, how unprepared I would be if the most basic question came up. I feel unqualified, and like a fraud. Who am I to preach the Word of God? Who am I to even talk about the most incredible gift that’s ever been given?

I’m a sinner, who was saved by that gift on the Cross. This story I have to share isn’t about me, it’s about Him. When we tell the story of Jesus, it doesn’t matter what words we use, or that we don’t know the specific dates of historical events, or that you may never properly pronounce most of the names and locations written in the Bible. All of that information is just filler around the punchline: Jesus died on the Cross because He loves us, and because He wants to spend forever together. He did it all, and there’s nothing we can learn or memorize outside of that truth that will change that.

If you’re like me, and you feel unqualified to share your faith, remember that the Cross is what qualifies you. The Cross is enough.

Write

Do you feel anxious or unprepared when it comes to talking about your faith? What fears do you have? What makes you uncomfortable when you think about it?

Pray

Ask the Lord to lead in you the direction of someone who doesn’t yet know His love so that you might share the greatest git of all with them.
