10 Super Lame Excuses For Not Sharing Your Faith

As a followup to last Thursday’s blog about the importance and ways to share your faith with others, I thought it would be fun today to share with you my top 10 super lame excuses for not sharing your faith with others.

  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 questions 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!)

I know that some of these reasons seem a little silly, but haven’t we all felt these at different times.  They don’t seem so silly when they are actually fears of ours.  We might find that if we push ourselves a little bit to get out of our comfort zone, that it might not be quite a scary as we built it up to be.  Who knows, it might just be the most rewarding thing we ever do with our lives.  Is it worth experiencing that just for a few fears we have?

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
