You need to say what you believe.

You need to say what you believe.

 We’re not keeping this quiet, not on your life. Just like the psalmist who wrote, “I believed it, so I said it,” we say what we believe. And what we believe is that the One who raised up the Master Jesus will just as certainly raise us up with you, alive. Every detail works to your advantage and to God’s glory: more and more grace, more and more people, more and more praise! (2 Corinthians 4:13-15)

Our walk with Christ is an everyday, 24/7 event. That means you don’t just take Him, or as some people may think, meet Him at Church on Sunday’s. If you are a believer and have asked Jesus into your life to be your Salvation, He is with you always. That means you are a walking testimony to the death and resurrection of Jesus all the time. Every minute. You don’t have to be perfect. Its not you that you are presenting. ‘More and more grace (for your imperfections and display Gods power), more and more people (the people you share Jesus with), more and more praise (for Jesus by the people you have shared your faith with for what He has done, doing and will do).

Recently God has made me acutely aware through the death of two men that I knew in high school that this Good News that we have is a matter of life and death. This isn’t a popularity contest. This isn’t a game. It isn’t about the numbers of people who you can convert. This is about the love and eternal life that God has for people.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:16-17.

If I could encourage you to do anything today, it would be to pray for the people who are in your life. Your family, your children, your wife, husband, friends, work colleagues, even people you dislike. Any one and everyone. If you need to forgive any body, forgive them. Jesus forgave you. Don’t let your judgment of their actions stand in the way of Jesus.

So say what you believe and know to be true about Jesus. Don’t be afraid to share Him. Share Him in love, respect and with humility, presenting what He did on the cross for every body and the truth of the resurrection that gives life to those who believe to everybody you meet and know.  

I will be praying that Jesus uses me more and more and that I have the courage to share Him in whatever way, when ever I can.
