Dear Cornerstone Family,
You and I are asked to share God’s message of hope to people in our city. I recently read that 80% of Christians believe we have a responsibility to share our faith, but the sad truth is only 40% have shared their faith in the last 6 months. So, in other words, we believe it is important, but not important enough to share?
What holds you back from sharing your faith? I think for some of us we just don’t know how to bring it up. Some of us are afraid of questions we may not be able to answer. Some of us have forgotten eternity is at stake. Some of us have forgotten how powerful the Gospel is. This Sunday we will discover how important it is to share our faith and how easy it really is to share.
“For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile.” Romans 1:16 (NLT)
