Sharing My Faith with Others

July 16, 2021


Psalm 119:105-112; Deuteronomy 32:1-10; Romans 15:14-21

OR Psalm 65:9-13; Isaiah 48:6-11; Romans 15:14-21


I may be a pastor, but I often find it challenging to share my faith with others, especially people I think will be skeptical of my beliefs.  I don’t want my evangelism to be a turnoff to people.   At Annual Conference this year, the speaker, however, challenged us to constantly share our faiths with others, regardless of others’ reactions.  While certainly I think we need to be sensitive to others and avoid railroading people with our beliefs, we are called to be confident in our faiths and testify to Christ’s grace in our lives at all times. Paul is an example of someone bold in faith, wanting to share his testimony with any and all who will listen.  May we all find a way today to share our faiths with someone we meet whether it be in line to get our morning coffee, at the office, at the playground, or around the dinner table.  May we share our faiths and invite people to be a part of our church so that they too may find the love and hope we have found in Christ.


  • How have I shied from sharing my faiths with others?  How can I be bolder in my faith?
  • What three people can I invite to worship, to Sunday School, or to a Bible Study this week?  


  • How can I tell my friends about my faith?
  • What three friends can I invite to worship or Sunday School this week? 


Faithful God, build in me a bold faith and help me to share it with others.  Grow in me a desire to invite others into the same faith journey that has been so meaningful to me.  Grow in me a desire to invite others to be a part of Brentwood UMC and give me the opportunities to invite them.  Amen.
