I suppose, like most people, I find it difficult to strike up a conversation with people I don’t know and so for me to talk to someone I don’t know about Jesus is frightening, but I have to say, I found it just as difficult at first to talk to those I know about Jesus!
Why was that? Surely, if the person knew me, they would listen to me.
If they are good acquaintances, then they would give you their time to listen to what you have to say. So I tried it! I told them that I was a Christian, that Jesus loves me and is guiding my life, and that I don’t have to be afraid, and that I now had purpose in my life and … Some listened and said “That’s nice!” knowing that was as far as the conversation was going to go. Some wanted to know more. I have never been ridiculed for sharing my faith.
It just takes a little courage!
