Have you ever felt ashamed? Of anything? Then you know the awful feeling it is. Have you ever felt that someone you love was ashamed of you? Maybe you disappointed them in some way or was an embarrassment to them and they told you they were ashamed of you. If so, you know the devastation it is!
Jesus said if we deny Him before men, He will deny us before the Father. Now THAT would be horrific and permanent! No one wants that (even if they don't know it, yet).
Go back with me to when you became a believer, when you were saved. What PEACE, what JOY, what burning desire to tell the world about your NEW LIFE!! Remember?
How about now? Still have the PEACE of God, the JOY of your NEW LIFE and still want to tell the world about your Saviour? Sometimes as we get further from our salvation experience our fervor fades. Maybe we've gotten embarrassed or picked on or even persecuted when we talked about and faith and so now we just don't talk about it much.
SNAP. OUT. OF. IT! The gospel of Christ is THE power of God unto salvation! Don't be ashamed! Don't be silent! People's eternity are hanging in the balance!
Life is NOT about you (and me). It's all about Jesus Christ. It's about His kingdom. We must tell them! Share the gospel. Tell people about when you were saved AND what Christ means to you today. Tell them how you are different. Tell them about His PEACE and His JOY even in the midst of this life.
The gospel of Christ is THE power of God unto salvation! Don't be silent.
