10 Lame Excuses for Not Sharing Your Faith

How often can we personally say we have lead someone to Christ?  Or even told someone about our Faith?  It has been a long time for some of us, and probably never for most Christians.  Why is that?  My opinion is that the idea of sharing our faith with others is intimidating, uncomfortable, and inconvenient.  So, we find ways to keep of beliefs to ourselves rather  than tell others.  The sad part is, those “others” could be family members and close friends.  Question:  Has God truly changed your life and saved you from destruction?  If he has, why leave loved ones to the same fate you were once facing?  I found the list below on ChristianPost.com.  It’s interesting to see how easily we convince ourselves that we are not qualified, required, eloquent or talented enough to share what God has done for us.  What do you think?

Ten Lame Excuses for not Sharing Your Faith:

  1. “It’s the pastor’s job, not mine.” (According to Ephesians 4:11,12 his job is to equip you to do the work.)
  2. “I don’t know what to say.” (There are plenty of resources out there to help you!)
  3. “I just live the gospel with my life.” (Good, now open your mouth and declare the good news!)
  4. “I’m waiting for the perfect timing.” (There’s no such thing!)
  5. “I don’t have the gift of evangelism.” (Well, I don’t have the gift of mercy but I still should show mercy!)
  6. “They could reject me.” (No, Jesus said they will reject you…at times anyway.”
  7. “I have bad breath.” (Testamints!)
  8. “I don’t know how to bring it up.” (How about just ask, “What are your spiritual beliefs?”)
  9. “I’m terrified.” (So am I. So was Paul! Let’s ask God for boldness like he did! Ephesians 6:19)
  10. “They may ask me a question I don’t have the answer to.” (You don’t have to know all the answers. You just need to introduce them to the One who does!)
