Don’t Be Afraid To Share

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7)
 
One thing I really admire about Peter is that Peter was determined not to allow anything to prevent him from preaching the Gospel. He had been given good news, and he wanted to tell someone about it. Peter took the mic and told his testimony—about how the Lord had spoken to him, and how God was using him to preach to those who, at the time, were outside the church.  
 
Before you know it, the Gospel went forth, the Holy Ghost fell, and people got saved. Before you know it, those on the outside were all of a sudden on the inside. Before you know it, the same power that fell on the Jews at the beginning, was the same power that fell on the Gentiles at the end. And it all happened because Peter was convinced that he had something so good, so great, and so powerful, that he just couldn’t keep it to himself.  
 
That is exactly how we ought to be. When we think about what God has done for us and how good God has been to us, we shouldn’t keep it to ourselves. If God has been good, if God has made a way, if God has opened doors, you ought not be afraid to tell somebody.
 
Have you been struggling with fear when it comes to sharing your story and spreading the Gospel? If so, let me encourage you. You have not been given a spirit of fear. God doesn’t want your worries and fears to paralyze you from spreading the good news. No, He wants you to go forth with courage and boldness to tell others about Him. So, if you’ve been sitting in fear for too long, now is the time. Begin to pray and ask the Lord to give you the strength and the courage to be a witness for Him and to share your faith with others. He will honor your request, and He will honor your obedience as well.
