Do you have kids? Do you remember their first step? It took a while to get there, didn’t it? There were months of preparation for that first step, failed attempts, scoots and falls, but eventually, it happened! The first step can be scary for the child! As an adult, you look at the baby from a much different perspective.
Why is that? It’s because you know. You know that first step will lead to many more and will lay the groundwork for running, playing and athletics. You know that although the first step may be scary and they may fall down, they will benefit greatly. They will grow in ways they never could without taking that first step.
So, have you taken that first step of faith? As believers, we get ready for that first step to witness by spending time in the Word, learning to share our faith and practicing what we might say. These things are all important, but if we never actually take that step, we will never know what we can do beyond that!
Your first step might be asking a friend to have coffee with you because you have something you would like to share with them. It could be walking up to a stranger at the laundromat and asking them if you could ask them a couple spiritual questions, or it could be going to an Equip America or Share your Faith Workshop where you can actually go out and share your faith alongside other believers who are taking their first steps as well.
No matter what your first step is, take it in faith, and know that the Lord is right there with you, cheering you on as you bring others to Him!
This is our focus this week at Evangelism Explosion through our social media channels and our daily broadcast. We’ll be taking steps of faith to share the Gospel.
May God richly bless you this week as you walk in faith.
