Your Reasons for Not Sharing the Gospel

When a close friend began to share the gospel with people in public, I was no longer off the hook. I realized I had been sharing Jesus to the extent that most of my Christian peers were—not much at all.

But my friend’s actions had just raised the bar.

When I examined my heart before the Lord, this is what I found:

My Reasons for Not Sharing the Gospel

  • I work full-time at a ministry and rationalized that was enough.
  • I was too busy to engage with people when I was off work.
  • I didn’t have Jesus’ level of compassion.

I repented, and Jesus deepened my compassion for lost people. I began to regularly plant seeds of the gospel and share Jesus with others.

Soon afterward, my husband was diagnosed with brain cancer and died 13 months later. We both suffered deeply through that time. But I realized his suffering would one day end—he would be in heaven with Jesus, and my suffering would end too—Jesus would help me through the grieving process. We would both be okay.

But people who don’t know Jesus are not okay now, and they won’t be okay when they die and go to hell. Their suffering will never end.

God is not willing that any should perish (2 Peter 3:9), and Jesus set the bar high when He gave us the Great Commission.

Take a few moments to jot down your reasons for not sharing the gospel.

Now picture someone you knew, or crossed paths with, suffering in hell. Picture them asking you, “Why didn’t you tell me?” And imagine reading your list to them.

The most important thing we can do with our lives is love Jesus wholeheartedly and share His gospel with others.
