Be Exceedingly Glad
Determine to make it a lifestyle to regularly share your faith. It may be with an unsaved friend, a coworker, a family member, or a stranger. Remember, the key to motivation is not to be concerned about yourself, but to care about the unsaved person’s eternal fate. Even if you were beaten up, Jesus said to rejoice and be exceedingly glad because even the prophets before you were persecuted. Think of what a child does when he’s learning to walk. If he falls down, do you discourage him from trying again? No. You want him to grow up, so you encourage him to stand on his own feet, and to take more steps. Even if he gets a bruise, you don’t tell him to give up. That would be unthinkable. So, if you fall down and get bruised, stand up, dust yourself off, and take another step of faith. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
