"Share"Stuart Jones Jesus is the way, the truth, the life and the only way to the Father. We need to help people understand that truth and share with those who do not know. For most of us, it seems a bit scary to think about sharing the truth of Jesus Christ. We learned a long ago to share. As early as kindergarten, we shared crayons, space in the sandbox and toys. Growing older, we learned to share time with others, give money or items of clothing. And what do we share in church? Meals. We take food to the church potluck or to someone’s home. None of those are scary. In fact, sharing in those instances can be fun. However, none of these examples of sharing are really very personal. They’re not about our feelings or about our actions. Sharing our personal thoughts and feelings does not have to be scary. Sharing the Gospel does not have to be hard to do either. When we tell stories of our lives and experiences and how Jesus worked to change us – that is sharing the truth. Don’t let those life stories be told as if it was all luck, by chance or something you did on your own. Always give credit to the Lord for what you have and what you have accomplished. In 1 Peter 3:15 (NIV), we are provided a guide for sharing with others. “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” And that hope comes from knowing that Christ is our Lord.
