Sharing Jesus With Your Friends

This is Mark Hall, the lead singer with Casting Crowns, one of my favorite Christian music groups. He’s talking about sharing Jesus with your friends, which is something every Christian needs to do.

One of the things he emphasizes is the need to wait for the Holy Spirit to make the opening. I believe, based on my own experiences, that when the Holy Spirit wants to use you, He will give you the words.

Catholics tend to be slow to do this and other traditions sometimes overdo it to the point of becoming a nuisance. We need to trust God to lead us. The most important witness for Christ is when we follow Him with our lives. Without that, nothing we say will matter.

    “Jesus freaks out in the street handing tickets out for God” – Elton John.

    That would have been the sentiment had a Christian gotten up and witnessed at a 1970 Jimi Hendrix concert. Christianity was for the Establishment, not for the Counter-culture. Those were confusing times. Jesus Christ Superstar had not yet hit Broadway.

    As far as I can see, the “Truth” is something that has been agreed upon by men (with hardly any input from women). The canon of the Bible, the Nicene Creed, the Council of Trent, etc. To question this “Truth” is to be looked upon as lacking faith. It doesn’t work for me any more.
