The Joy of Sharing Your Christian Faith with Others

Deep down, every one of us wants to live a meaningful life, and we will feel truly alive when we are living out God’s Great Commission. Whether we bring God’s good news to our workplace or a distant mission field, this is our truest calling. This week Barry Meguiar joins Gary Wilkerson to talk about the joy of sharing our Christian faith with others.

Turning a Filipino Saul to Paul

An ex-Muslim helped one woman see the truth of God’s Word, which sparked her passion to do the same for others.

Carmelita absolutely could not stand these filthy evangelicals.

She could’ve sworn they’d put some kind of Bible study near her house just to drive her half crazy. People would walk past her house holding Bibles all the time, and it was unbearable. Then there came the knock on her door.

Several people smiled as she opened up, stoking the flames of her righteous indignation. “Ma’am, our church has become too big for the house where we’re meeting, and we were wondering if you would be so kind as to let us meet in your home?”

The pure nerve of these fools! Furious, she chased them off her porch.  

Working in the Graveyards

Bangladesh’s most impoverished and discriminated-against group is slowly opening up to outsiders and the good news of Jesus Christ.

Aatmaja waits by the gates, wreathed in the scents of smoldering camphor and incense, burning bamboo and bodies.

The cremation grounds are filled with pyres, feet often poking out with the big toes tied together. Families gather around the hottest burning ones, chanting matras that will hopefully help their loved one achieve “moksha,” freedom from the endless cycle of death and rebirth.

Another family enters the grounds, carrying a body on poles, everyone careful not to touch it. That’s Aatmaja’s job, that and tending the pyres, because she has no caste status or purity to lose.

She’s a Dom, the lowest strata of the untouchable caste “Dalits.”

Acting Out the “E” Word

Evangelism is becoming an increasingly touchy subject both outside and inside the church.

A Discipleship Pathway Assessment study found that “most Protestant churchgoers say they are eager to talk to others about Jesus, and are praying for opportunities to share their faith. But most say they have not had any evangelistic conversations in the past six months.”

Is modern Western culture making evangelism more difficult than it was before? This seems unlikely. Every generation has faced obstacles to sharing the gospel.

So why do Christians feel like they can’t or shouldn’t evangelize?
