We Make it Harder than It Has to Be

Description

Why do we make evangelism harder than it has to be? Your authentic experience will have more impact than you realize.

I love great restaurants. My friends know this and make a point to tell me about great places they’ve eaten.

The conversation follows a predictable pattern. They’ll excitedly tell me the name of the new restaurant, tell me when they were there, and then go into great detail about what they ordered, how it was prepared, and of course, how it tasted.

Now, there are a couple of obvious points here: 1) you have to have been to the restaurant and 2) you have to have eaten there.

You can’t have driven by and tell me how good the food is. A great restaurant review is always first hand—and only first-hand.

Evangelism is the same way. Like a great restaurant review, you can only talk about Jesus first-hand.

You can’t just drive by the church and tell me anything about Jesus. Your story has to be your story. There aren’t secondhand accounts. It has to be first person.

Your friends want to know what’s going on in your life. They care about what you care about. That’s why you’re friends.

So telling them about Jesus isn’t as hard as you might think it will be. Just honestly tell them in your own words what Jesus means to you.

Your authentic experience will have more impact than you realize.

Here’s a question for you: why do we make evangelism harder than it has to be?
