As Christians, we have our own way of expressing our faith. For many, it means attending church weekly and praying privately in their homes. Others share their faith with friends that are like-minded. Still, others have friends they’ve met at church.

And why not? All of these ways are acceptable. In fact, we should not brag, are we not taught this in scripture?

Scripture talks about not making a show of faith like the hypocrites. In Mathew 6:5-15 (read on air).

Then the Lord goes on to teach us how to pray, and He gives us the Lord’s prayer, encouraging us to forgive our trespasses as He has forgiven us.

Not only did the Lord admonish us not to brag about our holiness, but he also explained we should pray in private.  So, why am I talking about your comfort zone today? Because the Lord teaches us that while we should not brag about our holiness, we should also not keep the good news to ourselves. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.”

Seriously. How could we not share the good news about eternal life with Christ? In fact, we read the words of Jesus before He rose up into heaven, Matthew 28:19 “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”

How can we make disciples for the Kingdom of God? First, ask the Lord. I’ve shared in a past podcast about wanting to do the work of the Lord and share the good news, and I had little children at that time, and my vocation was not to go knocking on doors; it was to take care of my children and my family. Yet, God knew my heart, and He provided ways for me to share the good news with others by talking to the repairmen that came to the house or the pest-control guy. In this way, I could fulfill my purpose at that place in time and still share the wonderful things that God has done for us.

(Talk about going on a trip with my five children – two were in their late teens, and I had three others from several months old, three and five. The airline attendants could not believe the children were all mine, and it allowed for dialogue about children being a gift from God and what I thought about being open to the number of children that God would give me. Was this out of my comfort zone? Yes. I didn’t want to be the object of their attention, but I hope that this planted seeds of faith.

Asking the Lord to use you, sometimes out of your comfort zone, is one way that we can evangelize for Him. I’ve met street preachers and applauded them for their work. If that is how you’ve been called, it is a blessing. The college-aged young people I met gave out flyers at the beach as people were walking off the boardwalk and into the sand. If someone acted interested or wanted to talk more, they did — if not, there was no pressure.

Even if evangelization is forced, while it may be difficult, but I told her, God can use anything for His good and His glory. The assignment was given because of this passage in Luke.

Luke 10:1-12 (read on air).

This week’s challenge is to pray to the Lord and ask Him to provide for you when you are outside your comfort zone and that He gives you the words to use as you focus on His joy and love for you and others.
