Do you remember who shared the Gospel with you or introduced the Lord Jesus to you? I still remember how the late K. D. Diong spoke to me about Jesus. I became angry and told him not to speak to me about Him. But he persisted. He did not give up. A few months later he invited me to a slide show without telling me what it was all about. I took up the invitation and went with him to a house church. The pastor in attendance that evening was sharing on Daniel chapter 2. I was convicted that very night that the God of the Bible is the one true God. I went on to know and love Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. I have always wondered what if K. D. Diong had chosen to remain silent and did not share Jesus with me after my initial opposition and rejection.
We need to ask the Lord Jesus for boldness to testify for Him, witness for Him and share the Gospel. If we remain silent, how are the non-believers going to know Jesus?
The apostle Paul tells us in Romans 10:14 (NLT) “… how can they hear about him unless someone tells them…” and in Eph 6:20 (NLT) “… pray that I will keep on speaking boldly for him, as I should.”
My late uncle (mother’s brother) was a Hindu. He was my witness at my ROM. Thereafter I lost touch with him for many years. I decided to resume contact with him four years ago with the intention of sharing the Gospel. He was 89 when I started to visit him and take him out on a monthly basis for lunch. Five months later, I shared the Gospel with him. A few months later I brought a visiting pastor from India to my uncle’s home.
He too shared the Gospel with him. On my monthly visits I would pray with him before I left his home. Sadly, till his dying day, he kept Jesus out of his heart. But one thing is clear in my mind that on the day of judgement, when he stands before Jesus, he cannot tell me that I did not tell him about Jesus.
In May this year, my wife and I took a taxi in JB. We entered into a conversation with a lady driver. She was not a believer. I noticed that there was a bookmark f the goddess of mercy hanging on her dashboard. During our conversation she remarked that my wife and I looked very happy. She asked us if we ever quarrelled. I seized the opportunity to testify that we are Christians and Jesus keeps us happy. So brothers and sisters, let us not remain silent but declare Jesus boldly. May His Spirit give us grace and courage to speak for Him.
