Scripture Passage: Psalm 126:5-6
No matter how generous we are, how active we are in church, or how eloquently we preach, there is no substitute for sharing our faith with other people. Psalm 126 reveals how to share Jesus: “Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him” (Psalm 126:5-6).
The soul is of great worth; Jesus died upon the cross, paying the price with blood and agony to show how much He desired our souls.
Our souls are also valuable because of their durability. When God made the human soul, He made it in His own image, therefore, each soul is endless, timeless, dateless, and measureless.
Every soul has the potential to be transformed into the likeness of Jesus Christ.
We must be committed to sharing our faith because it is the command of our Savior.
We are designed to go forth (Psalm 126:6); nothing takes the place of going. It’s not enough to “live good lives,” because our lives are not what save souls… salvation through Jesus’s death and resurrection saves souls.
Second, we must be concerned when we share our faith. If we feel we’ve lost our broken hearts for the unsaved, we must beg God to break them again. We must ask God to give us the eyes of Jesus who, when He saw the multitudes, was moved with compassion (See Luke 19).
Third, we must be consistent as we share our faith, for we bear seed for sowing. In this passage, the seed is the Word of God, and in that seed, there is life. Because there is power of life in the seed, there is power in the soul winner who scatters the seed.
Finally, we must be confident in sharing our faith: if we keep sowing, we will see a harvest. We should not concern ourselves with the soil. We just sow the seed, asking God to give us open doors and increase.
Are you endeavoring to share Jesus with others? Are you committed, concerned, consistent and confident in sharing your faith?
Adrian Rogers says, there’s no greater joy than bringing a soul to Jesus Christ. It’s easy to go to church, to study our Bibles, have our devotions, and it’s all good. But would you not say: ‘Lord Jesus, help me to share’?”
