"I realize you are VERY busy and, most likely, won't have time to stop and write me (and that's ok!) but I was wondering if any of the Way of the Master shows talk about the 'fear of witnessing?' For me, I feel like I'm not doing enough to get the gospel out...my problem is...for me to go up to a stranger and give out a tract, it makes me shaky just thinking about it to be honest. It's ONLY strangers though. It makes me VERY sad and weary just thinking about all the unsaved people out in the world, but It doesn't help my fear..." Jessica
Here's a portion from my response:
"I think these two radio spots from The Way of the Master Radio might help you:
Way of the Master Radio Launched! and December 22, 2006 - Hour 2 Also, I think I address the fear problem in an interview I did a while back it might help a bit. Honestly Jessie, you just have to do it or else you wont overcome your fears at all…don’t even give yourself time to talk yourself out of passing out a tract etc…just do it! And if you get rejected here’s a blog to encourage you Don't Sting Them." :-)
What would you have said? Do you have a testimony or two of how you deal with fear while sharing your faith? Is there anything that you could say to those that are struggling with fear? Feel free to post a comment or email me your thoughts at email@example.com.
