Why Don’t We Share?


For the past few weeks, I have been thinking about why we don’t share the gospel.  I have come to the conclusion that Christians aren’t that excited about it.  When you look at what drives movements and revolutions, it is usually the excitement and energy of the people who are involved. For evidence, just look at the Obama campaign, civil rights movement, and Kimbo Slice (lol).  People were excited and they started telling folk and the word spread.  When I am excited about something I tell everybody that I think would benefit from hearing me.  In the book of Acts, the gospel spread like wild fire to many races, ethnicities, and nations within a very short period of time.  People were willing to die just to share what they heard about Jesus.  So why are we not excited?

Maybe we don’t truly understand what we believe?

Maybe we don’t truly believe what we understand?

I am not sure what do you think?

    In addition to lack of understanding, I would offer that people are afraid to share the Gospel with others out of fear. I think fear manifests as a result of lack of understand, and fear manifests as a result of overwhelming concern of what other’s will think if you “talk” about Jesus. Often times people want to share the gospel, invite others to worship service, or simply share their christian experiences, BUT because others may judge them or find them socially inept, they keep their mouths closed. The fear of what others THINK is rooted in PRIDE…which is an ugly beast. Our fear should be rooted in what God thinks, not man.

    Yea, that’s true. What can we do to solve the problem as believers? It just seems as if that is always offered as the reason, but what can we do about it individually and corporately?

    I think we can individually and corporately educate the people of God on the subtle sin of pride, how fear of man can separate us from God, and how not sharing the Gospel is being disobedient to the Great Commission commandment.

    Well let’s get to it! It’s going to take some courage though!
