I am with you alway

Below is the K4T devotion on 2011.06.17. It was almost like speaking to me. Which part was it speaking? When I have the fear of sharing the gospel. It probably hit the exact same sentiments that I had.
Lord, as much as we know you are with us, yet our actions shows as if it was not true. Give us courage. Give us strength. Give us wisdom that we may share the gospel with much meekness. As much as the gospel may be offensive to some, help us to share with love and with humility. Give us words that we may speak not of ourselves but through you, through the Holy Spirit. May we, in all ways push the gospel out to the world and bring more people to you. For only through you, truth is found, truth is available, truth abounds. Sanctify us, remind us of who we are and where you’ve brought us from, and where we should have been, that we may not grow cold to you.

Christ Has Promised His Presence

"I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world." (Matthew 28:20b)

Have you ever had such wonderful news that you were just bursting to tell someone else? Maybe you got a good grade on a test, or perhaps you won an important ballgame. Good news is something you always enjoy sharing, isn’t it?

But what about the Gospel – the Good News about Christ’s death and resurrection? Do you enjoy sharing that Good News?

For some reason, it’s easy to talk to other Christians about what Jesus Christ has done and is doing in your life. But when it comes to talking to people who don’t know Him, it just seems a lot harder. What if they think you’re weird? Or what if they make fun of you? Or what if they just don’t understand? Because you don’t know how they may respond, there are times when you might feel afraid, or even pretend that you don’t know Jesus.

But Jesus wants you to share Him with others! In fact Jesus says in Matthew 28:19-20a, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you." These are words that Jesus spoke to His disciples, in His last earthly message, before He ascended to heaven. Jesus told them that they should teach others about Him and show them how to be followers of Him. If you are serious about being a follower of Christ, then this command is for you, too.

Wow, what a big task! Maybe even a scary one as well! But the best part is that Jesus offers you a promise with His command: I am with you always, even to the end of the world. (Matthew 28:20b). Always – that includes when you speak to others about Jesus! Even though you may feel afraid and even outnumbered at times, Jesus is always with you. You can be confident because Jesus has assured you that you are not alone!

Jesus is with me when I talk to others about Him.

My Response:
» Am I obeying God by sharing Jesus with others? Am I trusting Him to help me tell others about Him?
