Five Minute Friday: BRAVE...
As I sit here and panic about whether I'm BRAVE enough to write on this topic...I'm quickly wasting my five minutes away.
It is easy to be brave from a safe distance. ~Aesop. I've always chuckled at this quote...and then thought about it's truthfulness.
I just spent the weekend telling the ladies in my church about sharing the gospel. Nothing earth shatteringly new, I assure you...just the basics of what needs to be covered...and lots and lots of encouragement to be BRAVE!
As I admitted to them...I could talk to anyone about anything...that does not take courage for extroverted little me. Asking people to consider it for themselves...whether they have personal hope for an eternal future in heaven...THAT takes courage. But, mostly because I have little FAITH...I forget the work is God's and not mine at all.
Perhaps, if I kept this more in mind...I'd see that the pressure is off...and that I only have to be faithful with what I know...to share it in love...then I'd be BRAVE for Jesus.
