Telling others about Jesus is very simple. We think we are too busy, we don’t think we can do it, we get too nervous, or we just fear rejection. All you need to do is ASK them to come to church with you. You can have them over to your place and watch the Internet Campus service together or send them the link to check Saddleback out from the comfort of their own home. Honestly, I have feared rejection and I have gotten nervous about sharing my faith, but that changes when I follow these steps (sometimes I have to refresh my mind).
#1. Realize the reality of them being without Jesus
“You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose the easy way. But the gateway to life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it.” Matthew 7:13-14
#2. Build real relationships with people who don’t know Jesus
“For when we brought you the Good News, it was not only with words but also with power, for the Holy Spirit gave you full assurance that what we said was true. And you know that the way we lived among you was further proof of the truth of our message.” 1 Thessalonians 1:5
#3. Invite a friend and/or family member to an online service
“As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” John 20:21
“Fruits of righteous is a tree of life and he who wins souls is wise.” Proverbs 11:30
You are not too busy, you can do it, nerves shouldn’t be an issue, and you shouldn’t fear rejection. Sharing your faith is simple. Start by just asking your friend and/or family member to come over to your place to watch the Internet Campus service with you or just ask them to check out a service at the following link http://saddleback.com/internetcampus/live.
We are praying for you, your friends, and family members that you will be inviting in the next couple weeks.
