Andros, my grandson, just got a “bike” a few weeks ago. And not just any bike…he got a PW50. What is that, you ask? It’s a dirt bike. Yes, you read that right. My two-year-old grandson has a legit dirt-bike-motorcycle-death-trap. Just kidding—it’s not a death trap, but Andros can now go 30 mph on a dirt track and he’s barely two feet tall!
Andros has grown up the last two years watching his dad drift cars and ride bikes, so it only seems natural that he would want in on the action. McKenna has been sending me videos of him riding first on straight patches of field, now progressing to a track with hills and turns. They have special training wheels attached, but he barely uses them! Andros. Has. No. Fear.
Which got me to thinking…why do WE when it comes to sharing the gospel?! I know I’ve written on this subject before, but it bears repeating. It’s especially relevant to me now with current situations in my life. We should not be afraid to share the gospel with our friends, with our loved ones, with our neighbors and even our enemies! Sometimes, we fear looking like the weird one, but we shouldn’t. Jesus came to save us through a death, burial and resurrection. People thought He was weird with the things He was teaching. But He taught it anyway!
Your opportunity to share the gospel with someone may be the only time they get to hear it. It’s important that people know and hear about the love of God before it’s too late. I falter at this. Sometimes, I miss the opportunity because I don’t want to “make waves” or cause an argument with someone who believes differently. But all you need to do is plant the seed! God will water and grow it!
Let’s strive to more like Andros in this situation and learn to HAVE NO FEAR!
