I’ve begun writing a book about sharing our faith with pre-christians and I need your help writing it!
I want to address the issues that people have, the obstacles that we face, as well as the joys we experience in “showing and telling” about Jesus. I want to be able to speak to your struggles and concerns as well as incorporate some of your good stories in my next book. So, please share!
If, off the top of your head, you’re having a tough time coming up with your own issues about sharing your faith I offer some pump-priming ideas that you may be able to identify with (or not). Though I’d love to hear what you have to say in your own words (via WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, or even email* if you prefer), if you prefer to copy and paste one or more of these statements in a response, that’s cool too.
- I love sharing my faith and do it every chance I get.
- I’d share Jesus more often if I felt like it made any difference at all. No one seems to care.
- I’d share more if I knew what to say.
- I’m not sure if what we call “evangelism” is even valid in today’s post-modern culture. Does it even matter what people believe if they have some form of spirituality?
- I don’t how to begin the conversation.
- People will decide to follow Jesus without our help. The Spirit is the one who convicts and saves.
- I’d talk more about it but I’m afraid of looking like a fool.
- Most evangelism approaches sound like a sales pitch; and people aren’t buying.
- I don’t “witness” very much, but when I do, I love it!
- My sole form of evangelism is inviting people to church.
So, if none of these apply to you, please tell me what does.
Also, send me an anecdote of how you shared your faith with someone and it turned out to be an amazing experience. (Maybe your story will end up in my book! With your permission, of course.)
