I have realised over the last few weeks that I am becoming much more comfortable and keen to talk about Jesus. It is not something I have found easy in the past and not something I have actually tried to do anything about yet. But I have realised that in my daily life as I come into contact with a wide range of people I am discussing my faith in a very open manner. In the past I have been nervous and unsure about sharing my faith with others. The reasons for this included a lack of knowledge about my faith and a fear of ridicule from people I knew before I became a Christian.
This has changed recently and I have found myself having a number of conversations about my faith recently without trying or feeling uneasy. Every single one of these conversations just happened and despite the fact that most of the people I have discussed this with are non-Christians they have all been pleasant and constructive. Through everyone of these conversations not only have I been able to discuss and enlighten people about my Saviour, but I have also learned a lot and certain things have started to fall into place.
I think sometimes we fall in to trying too hard to do certain things and be a certain way. Sometimes we just have to let God and Jesus in, let Them work in our lives without us interfering in Their plans. When we do this we become shining lights, beacons for those who want to know God, even if they don't realise it consciously. And it is then when we can do some amazing work for the Lord.
This blog is supposed to be, as much as I can, my daily journey through life as a Christian. I hope it to be my thoughts and feelings on life but be as grounded in the Christian message as it can. My intention is not to create a daily readings or bible study guide but to look at my life in terms of a Christian trying to find and follow God's mission using his Life User's Manuel AKA the Bible.
