Jesus understands all our fears about witnessing. That’s why He’s sent us the Holy Spirit.
When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me. John 15:26
When have you spoken up for Jesus? When have you told someone about Jesus who doesn’t know Him? I understand how fearful you might be. Maybe you’re afraid your neighbor will never speak to you again. Or your friends will laugh. Or you’re fearful you’ll lose popularity or a promotion or a position or prestige. You could probably name any number of things that could keep you from being a witness for Christ.
Jesus understands all your fears. That’s why He’s sent you and me the Holy Spirit. When we speak, the Holy Spirit not only gives us the words — He makes those words powerful to make a difference in the hearers.
So … just do it scared!
