Sharing Your Faith with Others

“I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ(Philem 6-7).

There is a strong correlation between those who publicly share their faith with others and an increase in spiritual growth for that individual. In my own journey I’ve discovered that when I stop sharing my faith with non-believers I begin to see a dryness in my walk with God.

Sometimes we justify our lack of verbal witness by saying we don’t have the spiritual gift of evangelism. Or we conclude that because we have an introvert personality we leave witnessing to others who we deem as more qualified. As a well-qualified introvert myself, I’ve often wanted to use that excuse. Then, the Holy Spirit reminds me of a few instructions Jesus said to EVERYONE:

“But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven” (Matt 10:33). “He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation” (Mark 16:15-16). There is not much confusion about what Jesus is saying in these verses. And it relates to all of us.

When we share Christ with others God allows us to gain a deeper and greater understanding of every good thing in Christ. Do you see the direct correlation between sharing your faith and your own spiritual growth? Paul says it’s actually a prerequisite to spiritual growth.

One of the great ways to turn a conversation to faith is by asking someone if there is anything you can pray for them about. You will be surprised how easily this will transition you into a conversation about their faith lives.

Ask God for boldness today to offer to pray for someone.

  1. Being a co-worker together with God – having Him work in me and through me to reach others – is the greatest privilege.

    I find two things are true when we witness to others about our faith. Firstly, we feel somewhat drained, which is acceptable, since we are giving of ourselves – but then, we are strengthened and we are uplifted and encouraged by God Himself. I cannot describe the blessedness of the experience – and yes, of my own spiritual growth.

    We serve an amazing God!
