Do you condemn yourselves and avoid sharing the good news with others? Do you feel unworthy to bring Jesus to friends or family? Then never worry at all. Any believer can share the gospel because it’s not about your performance or abilities. It’s about God’s love for all.
It’s easier to talk about others. Isn’t it? It can get difficult to talk about yourself. Here are three reasons why sharing the gospel is easy.
Three reasons why only believers can bring Christ to the world around them
1. We preach Christ, not ourselves. (Acts 2:36; 17:3) (1 Corinthians 2:2)
For I made the decision to know nothing [that is, to forego philosophical or theological discussions regarding inconsequential things and opinions while] among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified [and the meaning of His redemptive, substitutionary death and His resurrection]
2. Heavens Unsearchable riches are revealed to believers, not the unsaved.
To me, [though I am] the very least of all the saints (God’s people), this grace [which is undeserved] was graciously given, to proclaim to the Gentiles the good news of the incomprehensible riches of Christ [that spiritual wealth which no one can fully understand]
3. Christ is the Living God, not an idol made of wood or stone. He speaks to us as believers – mere men. What a perfect friend for daily life!
“Men, why are you doing these things? We too are only men of the same nature as you, bringing the good news to you, so that you turn from these useless and meaningless things to the living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and everything that is in them.
Do you see it yet?
How it’s not about you but what’s in the Bible – the personality of Christ? This is why only believers can bring Christ to the world around them.
Of course, it becomes a lot easier when you meditate daily in His word. give room for the Holy Spirit to work. We are unworthy to tell others about Christ, and that’s the whole point. Our unworthiness makes us eligible to share how Christ is changing our lives today.
Live wisely, redeem the time. Jesus is coming soon for His children. Praise God, and Amen!
