Sharing the gospel
It makes me sick to say this, but in the 21 years or so of believing in Jesus, I've never focused on sharing Him. I'm turning 23 in October. Of course I've shared Jesus some. We saw one of our friends get baptized this year, but she's stopped coming to church and talking with us. She's still living with her boyfriend who doesn't seem to want Christ. I'm a very shy person and find it hard to open up to people. I want to, but I lose heart. I know this is a terrible excuse. Being in school and having a son, I don't know where and when I can share. I feel like I have to scrounge for even the possible opportunities of sharing Jesus, and even then I've got to suppress my shyness. Is there an exhortive, scriptural word that a brother or sister can give me? I know I'm asking stuff, but it's not for me - I just want to share Jesus better.
