Sharing. Contrary to appearance, sharing is something people do every day. People are always telling other people about the good things they have experienced. When anything good or exceptional happens to us, it’s our human nature to seek someone to tell; to share it with, as soon as we can.
We tell people about good restaurants we’ve eaten at. We tell people about good movies we’ve seen. We tell people about a certain store where we got good service and good prices.
We tell our friends when we’ve met someone new, when we’ve bumped into an old friend, and many other things. But, unfortunately, the thing we share are not all good. Past studies show that people are more like to tell people about a bad experience than a good one.
Why am I going on and on about sharing? I was wondering why more people aren’t sharing Jesus. This seems to be one thing that people are most willing to allow someone else to share.
When was the last time you simply struck up a conversation with someone about something Jesus or God had done in your life?
We thank Jesus. We thank God, for the things He’s blessed us with. Yet, we don’t seem all too eager to share that with anyone else. Sometimes we go to church and praise God. We mingle. We sing hymns together and then we recede to our own little circles of life.
When was the last time you shared the topic of your pastor’s (or priest’s) message to a friend? When was the last time you said to someone, “Wow! My pastor gave an amazing message in church today,”?
When I stop and consider the myriad of things, we get excited about sharing with other people, I can’t help but wonder why more people aren’t sharing their experiences with Christ and God.
Why are we always letting “someone else” be the one to share Jesus and His Gospel?
