Spreading the word of God sends a shiver down the spine of many Christians; many of them giving excuses like “it’s not my spiritual gift”. The book of Mathew 28: 19-20 commands all Christians to share the word of God making disciples across all nations. But God did not just give this command; in verse 20, he says “and I will be with you, always.” Therefore there is no reason to fear spreading the word of God. But what can motivate you to do that every time?
Know that it’s the power of the Lord Jesus Christ that people will be saved.
In the book of Roman 1: 16, Paul was inspired by the Holy Spirit says that he isn’t ashamed of spreading the word of God, “for it’s the power of God, ” that “ everyone believes…” Understanding that it’s not through your power that people will be saved can make you share your faith without fear.
Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ
There is no special trick to spreading the word of God without fear, but it is comforting that Jesus will comfort us through our sincere prayers. Trust the Lord will give you a perfect opportunity to share his word; after all, it’s his desire to see every person come to the truth. (2 Peter 3:9) People will not likely respond the way you want; they will reject you just like they did to the Lord Jesus Christ, but it’s good to know that when you are rejected, you are promised the heavenly reward.
Remember you are just a gardener
Remember that even the apostle Paul, even after termed as a “man of God” was fearful. In a letter to fellow believer’s at Corinth he says” I came to you with fear and trembling” ( 1 Corinthians 2: 3). But that fear never stopped him from spreading God’s word. God understand that we might be afraid, but he expects as to be obedient to his command. Our primary job is just to plant a seed, just like we do to our garden, but it’s not our Job to take care of the growth. So there is no reason whatsoever to be afraid of spreading the word of God.
