Last night as I was in my quite time reading my bible this thought came to my mind that really struck a chord in my heart.
How can someone who’s never heard the word, crave the word, if we’re afraid to share the word, out of fear they’ll reject the word?
Paul and Barnabas showed us what it’s like to share the word without fear while letting the word stand on it’s on without forcing it and the power sharing the truth has if we’re willing to take the time out without fear to share it.
Acts 13:42-44 (NIV)
42 As Paul and Barnabas were leaving the synagogue, the people invited them to speak further about these things on the next Sabbath. 43 When the congregation was dismissed, many of the Jews and devout converts to Judaism followed Paul and Barnabas, who talked with them and urged them to continue in the grace of God.
44 On the next Sabbath almost the whole city gathered to hear the word of the Lord.
I’ll leave you with this. Remember most people don’t have a craving for something they never had or heard so I challenge you today to go and share the word because we’re lost without Jesus and desperate for him!!
