Followers of Jesus are called by Jesus to tell others about Jesus.
But most of us find it really difficult to tell others about Jesus. I know I do.
And it’s often an unpleasant experience to be on the other side of the telling.
“Christians and non-Christians have something in common: we're all uptight about evangelism.” No truer words from Becky Pippert.
I think I know why. You might relate.
I think, at the core, it makes me feel like I’m selling something. I’m not a salesperson. I loathe having to sell anything.
I think I could be a pretty good salesperson if all I had to do was respond to people who have indicated an interest in what I’m selling.
But sharing my faith feels like cold-call selling.
I have friends who are, at their very core, salespeople. Most of them don’t struggle with sharing their faith.
If you feel like I do about sharing your faith, then this weekend’s sermon will help a lot. It’s about 5 ways we can faith without the pressure based on John 4.
It’s not about overcoming the fear of selling; it’s about taking selling out of the equation.
Picture: I'm standing at THE Jacob's Well. The same one where Jesus met the Samaritan woman!
