Loving Our Neighbors Enough to Share
I read an article this week on evangelism and the importance of having the right mindset while doing it. In the article, Elliot Clark gives a review of a book titled. Joyfully Spreading the Word:Sharing the Good News of Jesus. In it, the authors, Kathleen Neilson and Gloria Furman, suggest that the key to overcoming our various trepidations to evangelism lies in our understanding that sharing the good news of the gospel is rooted in our love for our neighbor.
I too can find evangelism difficult at times. The fear of judgement and rejection can be numbing at times and yet, throughout the gospel, I am called again and again to share the truth and joy of Christ with others. If I am to fulfill part of my purpose on this earth, namely to love others as I love myself and proclaim truth, then I must set aside my fears and boldly approach the calling that has been given to me as a follower of Christ. I have linked the article below if you wish to read further. God Bless!!!!!
