It’s not where you are today that matters most; it’s where you are heading. I want to help you on a journey to growth in your witness. Whether a teenager or a homemaker, a new believer or a seasoned pastor, a businessman or an international missionary, all of us can grow in our effectiveness in sharing Jesus.

Starting today I’m going to post some sort of encouragement for you daily for eight weeks. It could be a short video or a recommended book; most of the time it will involve some brief commentary about some aspect of sharing Christ.

This is fundamental to our growth as believers. Sharing Jesus will stretch you, push you, and move you closer  to him. While I won’t always be talking about something specifically related to my new book Sharing Jesus (without freaking out), lots of times I will.  The book features an Eight Week Challenge to grow in your witness. I’m not following that precisely, but feel free to sign up to do that here.

Today, Day One, I want to offer a little video on facing our fears. It’s only about a minute long. Enjoy!

  1. “Lost people are more amazed at our silence than offended by our message.” That’s a convicting word, doc. Thanks!

  2. Sadly, the people I know and/or encounter are simply NOT interested. They’ve heard about Jesus, the whole Heaven and Hell bit and are simply not interested in hearing any more about it. I try and they ask me to stop talking about it or make fun of the subject. There is no fear on my part, more of a loss for words.

  3. This is exactly why I’ve found sharing the gospel from the perspective of the whole grand story of Scripture is far more effective. For those who see the gospel as getting out of hell and into heaven, I want them to see it is not less than that, but it is far, far more. Only 1 in 10 unchurched adults think daily about the afterlife, but most think about everyday life every day. Helping to see how the gospel applies to all of life is critical when sharing with folks who see it as only the afterlife or behavior modification.
