06/06/19 – Acts 4:1-37; Psalm 124:1-8; Proverbs 16:24

Perhaps you are considering sharing your faith with someone or maybe teaching a Bible lesson.  But an inner voice says “I do not have enough knowledge” or “I have no presentation skills.”    The following verse should reassure you:

Acts 413 When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. 

Peter and John were fishermen from an “outback” part of the country.  And they  even spoke with a different accent from the people in the “city.”

Yet, “they had been with Jesus.”  Can you not say the same — not physically but as you encounter Jesus through God’s inspired Word?

    When I first became a Christian, I found the words of I Peter 3:15 daunting – “Always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you ” . As I matured, I realized this verse wasn’t telling me I had to have great knowledge about all things Biblical. I have to be able to share with others WHY I have hope in God. That’s telling a personal story in light of His promises and His grace – that I’ve experienced. I find it fascinating to hear Christians share their stories about how and why they became Christians. Ask some of your friends – and be ready to tell your story, too.
