How TO Share Your Faith

It’s SHARE YOUR FAITH WITOUT FREAKING OUT WEEK here on GUWG.

We started off with a “To Don’t” List. We’ll conclude with a “To Do” List that attempts to summarize everything we covered:

Walk with God. Pray before you open your mouth. Fill your heart with God’s word. Let the Holy Spirit guide your every step.

Live a Life of Love

It’s SHARE YOUR FAITH WITHOUT FREAKING OUT WEEK here on GUWG.

Here’s one of my all-time favorite quotes from St. Francis of Assisi:

Here’s today’s verse:

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. (1 Peter 3:15)

Monday, we discussed how NOT to share your faith. Yesterday, we looked at the ultimate role model: Jesus.

Today’s topic? Be Like Paul.

Here’s what Paul himself said:

Yesterday, we shared some “To Don’ts.” Today, we’ll start sharing some “To Do’s.”

We’ll begin here:

Imitate Jesus. (1 Corinthians 11:1)

Was evangelism a priority for Jesus? Let’s look at his first and last recorded words to his disciples:

Share Your Faith Without Freaking Out

Ever get tongue-tied, weak-kneed or sweaty-palmed when it comes to telling people about Jesus?

I do.

Well, never fear again. This week on GUWG, we’ll be probing what the Bible says about how to share your faith without freaking out.

We’ll start with one of the few topics on which I am truly an expert: how NOT to share your faith. I have made every conceivable mistake you can possibly make in this area.

Without further ado, here’s GUWG’s official:
