"Did I tell you about the excellent restaurant I ate in the other night?"
Don't you love it when you learn about great things from friends? Whether it is an excellent sale, an excellent restaurant, or an excellent movie, we love hearing it, so we too can experience it. One of my favorite book series is Left Behind. I read it because a co-worker kept insisting how excellent the books were. I had no interest in reading them, but she kept insisting so I tried it. Like the old saying goes, "Try it, you'll like it." And I did!
So why are we so insecure about sharing about Jesus? Talk about EXCELLENT! He is! First Peter 2:9 states, "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light." Did you catch that? We are to PROCLAIM THE EXCELLENCIES of Jesus.
It seems we don't have any problem telling people about the great movie, restaurant or book we just tried. Why not tell them about someONE really great. Who knows, they might just try it...and like it. Jesus is excellent. Who are you telling?
