When Sharing the Good News of Jesus



Many people have commented through the years about the Natural way I share Jesus and that they find my company "pleasant".

It is important to realize the  Expression of Jesus has been hindered in the lives of many Christians because the modern day way of getting together has altered drastically when Constantine changed things in 330AD after Christ came. I want to tell you something, and it's this_ JESUS did not want things that way much less commission it.
 
Constantine was self-commissioned and much of the LIFE in Christianity went out of it.....so we have what we face Today: uninviting to people and to Christians often - they feel stifled by this, unable to breathe, so to speak.
 
I will share with you a Refreshing View. Come with me.
 
 
I like to inspire Christians to share about Jesus in a natural way. It could be conversing naturally in a supermarket or when walking in a park. People are so tired of being badgered with religion and often take the Gospel as religious. But who does'nt like a good story (a personal testimony) that is shared with wisdom and sensitivity? You know, the word Gospel actually means Good News? And it was just that 2,000 years ago when Jesus and His followers introduced it. I mean to say, there were Christian gatherings in houses then with family, friends and fellow Christians. Their numbers grew more by the day because their neighbors and people in their community sought them out. There was much joy and gladness. They would share meals together and sing songs of praise to a wonderful Creator and Savior.
 
 
Jesus was the centre of attraction for them, not programs, preachers and sermons.....but they loved the words of Jesus that were shared with joy from house to house. They loved to pray – without religious bondage like the pharisees (religious people of that time). Whole families came to Jesus because the atmosphere was healthy. Yes, before Christianity became institutionalized through the Roman emperor Constantine who instigated buildings and hierarchy as we know it today.....Christian gatherings were inviting to people around because of the new found Love, Joy and Peace in the lives of those who had found Jesus.
 
 
Constantine was not really good for Christianity as some suppose because he brought a whole lot of bondage to it that basically kicked the real LIFE out of it and there have been so many religions since then, you can't blame people for not wanting it – they have enough bondage in the world. But they usually don't mind a good healthy testimony – they like to hear some good news! But be careful how much time you take and make things short and sweet. This way they can feel free to remember it as a pleasant interaction. When you have shared your story with sensitivity to their response, trust the Spirit of God to go with that person because He is capable of blessing those words to that person in a timely way. He spoke to my heart once after a man in the market enjoyed something I shared with him “people have a problem with religion but not with Jesus” and I have found this to be true.
 
 
A FRIEND OF MINE SHARES SOME EXCITING NEWS ABOUT A CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP SHE GOES TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE CITY. BOTH HELEN AND MARK OWN A DAIRY FARM WITH COW SHARES SO PEOPLE FROM MILES AROUND CAN HAVE REAL MILK JUST LIKE THEY DO. THEIR SON HAS STARTED RACING CARS (he has a sponsorship for this) AND SHINES FOR JESUS IN AN AREA OF HIS PASSION. IN FACT, OTHER FRIENDS OF THEIRS FROM THIS FELLOWSHIP ARE GOOD AT SHOWING HOSPITALITY. THEY INVITE SOMEONE DIFFERENT HOME ON CERTAIN WEEKENDS OR WEEKDAYS TO SHARE A MEAL (buffet or roast whatever) AND SHOW KINDNESS TO THOSE WHO LIVE ON THEIR OWN. DIFFERENT ONES ARE INVOLVED IN COMMUNITY PROJECTS WITH A DIFFERENCE. IN FACT TWO DIFFERENT COUPLES HAVE RESTORED BARN DANCES (known as the Square Dance) IN THEIR AREA! SOME OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE LOVE ARTS AND CRAFTS. THIS IS REFRESHING, I LOVE TO HEAR OF SUCH THINGS.
