Sharing our testimony

February 20, 2012

One of the greatest challenges in life is sharing our deep-set beliefs with other people.  Some are very good at it, others can come across poorly.  Sharing our faith is meant to a personal expression of who we are because in reality, what’s more intimate than your spirit and your faith?  We see many movies and TV shows that make other “obvious” intimate encounters so public they become lewd, but the sharing of our faith still remains something that many unashamed celebrities are too shy to talk about.

This is especially difficult when sharing with people who are already set into a system of beliefs.  We may feel it’s judgmental or arrogant to share our faith with these sort of people, whether they’re Muslim or Mormon, but we must ask ourselves a profound question.  How true are the words of the Bible?  When Jesus says very clearly in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me…“, just how serious are we to take that?  Is He really absolutely the only way to God the Father, or was He exaggerating or mistaken in some way?  If He’s mistaken or was exaggerating, to paraphrase C.S. Lewis, why should we believe anything else He said?  No really, why?  Because I like it?  Just imagine how bad that philosophy will take you.  But if Jesus spoke the truth, then do we not have an obligation to share “the way, the truth, and the life” with everyone, even those “comfortable” in other beliefs?  The answer should be a resounding, if not a humble, “yes!

Therefore I would encourage all believers everywhere to not be shy about sharing your faith.  If Jesus is THE way, then every other way is taking people, loved ones and strangers, someplace far less than perfect – far less (intentional understatement).  Check out the following video that I found recently, it’s a great testimony of discovering a Biblical faith by people already committed elsewhere.  When, or if, you finish the video, be sure to check out their website, Adam’s Road, and listen to some of their free music and check out their free material.
