It’s scary sometimes, or at least for some of us it is. I’ve been a christian since 1995 and unfortunately many people I know will find this out as they read this blog. Evangalism hasn’t been one of my strong points.
When the idea for this blog first came to me, I didn’t think much about it. It didn’t hit me until I got to that “point of no return”. That’s when my heart started to pound and I started to get nervous. I began to think, “what am I doing, who am I to think I can do this?” “What do I know, and what will people think of me?”
Why is it that so many of us worry about what people think of us? What does it really matter? Are we that insecure that we care more about the opinions of people then we do about the opinion of God?
What a terrible injustice we are doing to those who have not received Jesus as their Savior, how disappointed God must be as he provides opportunities for us to witness and time and time again, our mouths stay shut and our hearts harden. In my mind I can see the image of people I knew passing. I can picture these people at that very instant when they realize there is a God and they did have to chose scream at me, “Why didn’t you tell me? You didn’t tell me!”
How sad it is for this to have taken me 17 years to realize or at least act upon. People are blind in the dark, shine your light so they might see. If you don’t, it might be you they’re screaming at.
