Speak Up About Your Faith. Lesson 18 of 40

Today, it seems like the ones speaking the most and loudest are the ones who don’t have much worth listening to.

I have learned that I carry truth and I must speak that truth without reservation.  I’ve always known God to be real.  I remember as a child having deep convictions to serve Him, I went back and forth on those convictions.  However, it was not until my Junior year in college that I surrendered, once and for all, no turning back!

The truth of Jesus is as real as real gets for me.  I have never been so convinced of anything else in my life.  This conviction is not just from the words of scripture but from my own personal experiences.

My own, “He picked me up out of the miry clay and placed my feet on a rock to stay” experiences.

My own, “you don’t know like I know what He has done for me” experiences.

My own, “I would have lost my mind, but God!” experiences.

My own, “I am so drenched in favor I don’t deserve” experiences.

As a result, I must speak up

I must speak up about His love when hate wants to silence me.

I must speak up about His ability to save because so many are lost.

I must speak up about His truth that will offend because many are dying with comfortable lies.

I must speak up about His standards even it causes me to be an outsider….and it will…and it has.

“For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes ” (Romans 1:16).  How about you?  Do you struggle with sharing your faith in Jesus with others? What hinders you?  Leave me a comment, I would love to hear from you.

Blessings,

Anika

  1. This is a conversation I’ve had with myself lately. There are things on Facebook, for example, that have blessed me but I don’t share (my presence on Facebook is small anyway) because though I agree with what’s said, I wonder if the message is too ‘radical’ for some of my ‘friends.’ But I have to realize that my worry should not be about how it’s received, I just need to be obedient to what God commands.

    1. Yes, obedience is key. We can’t fear the response of man. Thank you for being so honest with your struggles. Praying the Lord fills you with boldness!
