At the same time, I was stirred by Doug's question of 'what is the biggest challenge to our faith at the moment?' For me it was that simple sharing of my faith. I can honestly say I find it really hard to share who Christ is with my mates. It dawned on me, depressingly, that it was easier to tell my friends about a good novel I was reading than to share my testimony or an encouraging verse. This ability I have to translate my passion to others is such untapped potential for the gospel!
So, coming back challenged, I met with a coursemate who's struggling with issues of suffering and faith. We had a really honest conversation which was a massive step, and I was able to explain my overflowing joy at the work of God in my life. On Tuesday, another coursemate was looking to rekindle faith and I offered to pray for them. They were overwhelmed with floods of peace at our conversation. On Wednesday, I prayed for someone at a CU event who was just bubbling with excitement at God's love, they grasped something of the nature of God.
All in all, I feel God's unleashed a spirit of evangelism. I'm bursting at the seams to share my faith and I'm excitedly seeking opportunity to speak God's truth into all those around me.
