Tell Your Friend

Sometimes I want to tell a friend about Jesus, but I hesitate. Why? Because I feel nervous. I think, “What if I say/sign the wrong things?”
Today I want to share with you a couple of things that I have learned about telling a friend about Jesus. First, in our Bible Reading today, Jesus told His disciples that they should go into the world and tell everyone about Him. Then Jesus added, “You can be sure that I will be with you always” (verse 20b). Jesus will be with us when we tell other people about Him. He will give us courage and the right words/signs.
Another thing I have learned is that I need to spend time with my friend. I need to learn what is important to him and what his interests are. Then my friend and I will become closer, and it will be easier for me to talk to him about Jesus.
Do you become nervous when you think about telling your friends about Jesus? Relax! Be patient. Jesus will be with you!
