A Relaxed Urgency In Sharing Christ


Knowing that I’m simply appealing to the Spirit’s attractive pull already going on in a person’s soul relieves me of an unbearable weight on my shoulders. I can be less scripted in my efforts and a little more agile in my interactions. My witnessing then becomes more of a collusion and less of a collision!

It helps me have a relaxed urgency about sharing Christ. Since it’s not on me or about me, I can be more chill about telling others what I know about him.

Some people are so perfectly comfortable with their faith that they feel no need to hide it or to prove it. It’s just who they are, so when they offer Jesus to others, it doesn’t come out all forced and sweaty. They’re just letting someone in on the “secret” of what makes them tick.
