“I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.”
Philemon 6, NIV
If you are not sharing your faith in Christ, then you do not fully understand your salvation. That sounds like a pretty hard statement, but it is true. When you share your faith. You will discover a hidden treasure of knowledge and understanding you never knew existed before.
You will have a deeper sense of Jesus’ love for you. Sharing your faith requires you to love other people. Some people are very difficult to love. Only Jesus can give us a real love for people that can motivate us to share Christ. You will see people as Jesus saw them. You will learn that only Jesus’ love can change their heart. You will see how desperate people really are to know Jesus. When you share the story of Jesus with others you will understand Jesus’ love better.
Sharing your faith also develops your sense of hope. People place their hope in many things, only to be disappointed. You will discover one of the world’s most powerful influences when you discover the joy and hope that having peace with Jesus can give.
Sharing your faith also reminds you of what is really important. Many people try to make living their Christian life complicated. Those who share their faith discover the simple message that refreshes the hearts of people again and again. Sharing your faith reminds you that only Jesus can make you alive and satisfy your soul. Sharing your faith takes you back to the basics where the soul is refreshed.
Remember you are not a secret agent for Jesus. You are a public figure who must share that Jesus is alive and can save. When you share Jesus you will have the joy of knowing Him better.
