I love what Ravi Zacharias, the renowned Christian apologist, wrote about coming to faith in Christ. “I came to Him because I did not know which way to turn. I have remained with Him because there is no other way I wish to turn. I came to Him longing for something I did not have. I remain with Him because I have something I will not trade. I came to Him a stranger. I remain with Him in the most intimate of friendships. I came to Him unsure about the future. I remain with Him certain about my destiny.”
Much like Ravi, the earliest Christian believers talked a lot about Jesus and what He meant to them. John Foxe, the author of Foxe’s Christian Martyrs of the World, shares this insight: “In that age every Christian was a missionary. The soldier tried to win recruits…; the prisoner sought to bring his jailer to Christ; the slave girl whispered the gospel in the ear of her mistress; the young wife begged her husband to be baptized…; every one who had experienced the joys of believing tried to bring others to the faith.”
The late Ray Stedman, a Christian pastor and author, affirms Foxe’s insight. “These early Christians,” wrote Stedman, “never witnessed about the church at all; they witnessed about the Lord — what He could do, how He would work, what a fantastic person He was, how amazing His power was, and what He could do in human hearts.”
As Christ-followers, we too have a responsibility to speak about Jesus. Psalm 107:2 says, “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so…” Like first-century believers, we must include Jesus in our daily conversations. We must tell others how wonderful He is, what He has done for us, how He helps us from day-to-day, and the assurance that we have of spending eternity with Him in heaven.
The lessons on this page will help you to understand the why and how of speaking of Jesus wherever you go. One thing is certain, you can count on the Holy Spirit to help you. Speaking of Jesus is divine work — and divine work can only be done in dependence upon divine power.
I hope these resources will inspire you to speak of Jesus often as you go about your day.
