Live Life: Hide It #11

Live life but won’t share your faith!!!!

Colossians 1:9

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,

Romans 1:12

That is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.

Mark 16:15

And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.

When you believe in God but don’t share your faith.

Outside of loving others, this is the one thing that Christ wants us to do, yet we don’t!  Why is that?  Don’t we want others to join us by the side of Jesus in heaven?  Or are we afraid of being rejected by people in this world?  Don’t fear!  God is and will continue to prepare us to talk openly with those we are around and bring them closer to Him.  If we’re not sharing then we’re not responding to an important call from God in our lives.  And this is coming from a true introvert.   One that, naturally wants to hide in the corner and not be seen, but spiritually, has forced myself to get out of my comfort zone for Him.  So If I can do it, you can too!

This 1-minute devotion is actually called "Thank God for the Taco" and it addresses the way the world uses the name of God for things that don't matter, but how often we avoid honestly sharing small things about God in our conversations.:

Do you share your faith with others, or do you hold back from talking about God and what He is doing in your life? Earnestly pray for opportunities to introduce your friends to Christ. There’s no greater gift you can give to them!  -A Woman’s Daily Walk with God:

Lord, I know that You will give me the words that need to be said, if only I will follow Your prompting.  Help me have faith and willingness to reach beyond myself.  I love that You have others to me so they could walk with me, so now it’s my turn.  Lord please be with my family and friends.  I pray that they will not fear sharing who You have been in their lives. And for the ones that are still on the edge of knowing, please make Yourself present in their lives.  Amen!
