Sharing the Gospel with a stranger …
Practical Point :: be able to articulate the gospel in a few words
“God uses people of all temperaments to carry out his mission to the world. And it seems that he does not conform them to a particular limited person-type, but he works within their unique personalities and gifts to both bless them and to bless others.” Adam McHugh (Introverts in the Church)
“Jacob was a quiet man” Genesis 25:27
Practical Point :: it is ok to say, “I don’t know”
“I am slow of speech” Exodus 4:10
2 Corinthians 12:9 “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in your weakness”
1 Corinthians 2:1 When I came to you, brothers, I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.
2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
3 I came to you in weakness and fear, and with much trembling.
4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power,
5 so that your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power.
1)ask for time
Romans 12:4-5 “Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body.”
3) enjoy your role
1 Peter 3:15 But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,
Luke 21:1 As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury.
2 He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins.
3 “Truly I tell you,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others.
