Christians frequently avoid discipleship and Gospel proclamation due to fear of awkwardness and rejection. Feeling unequipped to teach is another reason we avoid sharing the Gospel, and are these fears justified? YES. Presenting the Gospel often is awkward, we will be rejected, and inherently we are unequipped to share the Gospel. Should fear stop us from presenting the Gospel? NO, because Christ’s sufficiency working through God’s sovereignty trumps and overcomes all fear related to sharing the Gospel.
Read 2 Corinthians 3:4-6.
- Do you need to rely on your personal ability to share the Gospel?
Read Romans 1:16.
- Is salvation dependent on your power?
