Sharing Your Faith: A Biblical Study of Why and How We Share Our Faith
Talking about evangelism stirs up an array of emotions for many of us. Some of us feel shy. Others might feel excited. Participating in evangelism can feel intimidating. We might feel like we don’t know what to say or that we don’t know our Bible well enough. These feelings can make us want to leave it to pastors, missionaries, or professional evangelists. But Jesus has commanded and equipped each of us to share our faith. In this Groundwork series, we will unpack the biblical meaning of evangelism by studying the scriptural narratives about Ascension Day and Pentecost, two significant events that shape and inform our ability to witness and share our faith. We’ll examine the instructions Jesus gives to his disciples and discuss the nature and power of the Holy Spirit who motivates and empowers us. Then we’ll determine what this means for each of us today and let Scripture teach us how we can confidently share our faith in our daily lives.
